Leftist Rips Off My Video for Vicious Smear on Michele Bachmann


On Friday, Aug. 5, I spent several hours standing in the rain to cover Michelle Bachmann during her appearance at the Spirit Midwest Christian Music Festival in West Des Moines, Iowa. To give you an idea of the conditions that afternoon, here is a photo I took of some teenagers at the festival:

The big news that Friday was that Standard & Poor had downgraded the credit rating on the U.S. national debt, and I got video of Bachmann’s press statement calling for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s resignation. It was not until Sunday, Aug. 7, that I posted this video of Bachmann giving her Christian testimony at the festival:

As you can see, Bachmann began her presentation with a joke, asking the rain-drenched crowd, “Who likes wet people?” and then said that, as Christians, they serve the “God of the winds and the rains.”

Nearly three weeks later, on Saturday Aug. 27, a left-wing anti-Christian blog, “On Knees for Jesus,” posted a pirated version of my video, edited and with a caption falsely asserting that Bachmann asked the crowd, “Who likes white people?” — with the contextual clue about “the winds and the rains” removed. That dishonest smear was then given prominence by the left-wing gossip site Gawker.

Chris Moody of Yahoo News exposed this vicious falsehood and, after I learned that my video had been stolen and misused for such a defamatory purpose, I put up a blog post denouncing the smear, and sent an e-mail to the anonymous proprietor of the “On Knees” Web site. He then deleted his first lie and substituted another vicious smear as a “correction.” But his pirated and re-edited version of my video — a clear violation of my copyright, and of YouTube’s terms of service agreement — is still online. I have spoken to an attorney and fully intend that the perpetrator of this crime will be brought to justice.
