James O’Keefe Also Duped PBS


A development executive from PBS was also given the NPR treatment by conservative activist James O’Keefe and his team, the public television network said. Representatives from the fake “Muslim Education Action Center Trust” met with Brian Reddington, although a PBS spokeswoman says she doesn’t know if he was taped. (Hint: He was, guys.) When he returned to the office, Reddington expressed “profound concerns about the organization” and the PBS team began a routine vetting process to check out their credentials. When they discovered they were fake, they cut off communication with the group. So when’s that video coming out, James?
