Mediaite: James O’Keefe Accuses Media Of ‘Journalistic Malpractice’

by Glynnis MacNicol | 1:17 pm, January 29th, 2010
James O’Keefe has published a statement about this week’s misadventures in Mary Landrieu’s office on Andrew Breitbart’s site Big Government.

O’Keefe claims he went to Landrieu’s in disguise in the hopes of ascertaining whether Landrieu’s phones were actually jammed — she had stated that was the reason voters were unable to reach her office to complain about her pork barrel health care vote. Says O’Keefe: “On reflection, I could have used a different approach to this investigation, particularly given the sensitivities that people understandably have about security in a federal building.” Oh, the  hindsight excuse.

The government has now confirmed what has always been clear: No one tried to wiretap or bug Senator Landrieu’s office. Nor did we try to cut or shut down her phone lines. Reports to this effect over the past 48 hours are inaccurate and false.

UPDATE: Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher points out below that so far the government has confirmed nothing along these lines.
