CNN was recently caught in an embarrassing situation after James O’Keefe of Project Veritas told the nation he had two months of recordings of the top editorial meetings of CNN leadership.
CNN responded that O’Keefe broke the law with his actions. “Legal experts say this may be a felony. We‘ve referred it to law enforcement,” said CNN in a statement.
But that seems odd for those who have a memory longer than 24 hours.
“It was only 60 days ago that CNNLOL went going crazy over recordings of first lady Melania Trump (who was guilty of nothing more than being awesome),” wrote John Nolte of Breitbart News.
Nolte also pointed out that CNN has repeatedly obtained and used secret recordings from Breitbart. “CNNLOL must have wrote a half-dozen stories about Breitbart’s internal communications because — just like James O’Keefe and these conference calls — someone gave CNNLOL access to them,” Nolte writes.
However, unlike CNN, Breitbart knows that such behavior is not illegal and isn’t into whining about it.
When CNNOL had access to our internal communications, we didn’t call the police. We didn’t like it, but it’s not illegal. When CNNLOL released secret audio recordings of the first lady, we didn’t scream and holler that the White House should call the police. It was cheap and catty, mean-spirited more than anything else, but it’s not illegal.
