James O’Keefe Still Booked for Speech on ‘Undercover Journalism’

While the Salt Lake City Republican Party responded to the arrest of James O’Keefe by canceling his scheduled speech at an upcoming fundraiser, the embattled anti-ACORN muckraker is still scheduled to give a speech on “undercover journalism” at the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco.

The event, which includes blogger Josh Wolf (who went to jail for not handing over video of protesters), is billed this way on the Club’s site: “A renegade insider shares his methods that revealed some unbecoming behaviors of a public-interest giant.”

Could O’Keefe still appear at this event after a judge ordered him to stay with his parents in New Jersey until the next hearing? I’ve called the Commonwealth Club to find out whether the event will be scrapped; a voicemail message listing current changes and cancellations did not mention the O’Keefe event.

I think O'Keefe and his buddies should do the next MSNBC prison shows….O'Keefe would probably find some way to video that into some right wings propaganda! Maybe that's the plan to get inside the prison system and do his great investigative journalism dressed in orange over-alls and in need of plenty of bars of soap. ; )

Maybe he can blog to the Commonwealth Club from his parents' basement?
