Even Fox News Host Isn't Amused By O'Keefe's Osama Bin Laden Border Crossing Stunt
Fox's Bolling Tells Discredited Video Journalist James O'Keefe To "Give It A Rest"August 11, 2014 7:52 PM EDT ››› THOMAS BISHOP
Fox News host Eric Bolling derided the antics of controversial conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe's latest political stunt, which featured a video of him crossing the Rio Grande River in a mask of Osama Bin Laden.
Controversial filmmaker James O'Keefe, known for deceptively editing videos in order to push his canard of "political disinformation," released a video of himself dressed up as Osama Bin Laden to purportedly show how a terrorist could easily get into the U.S. from the Mexican border. Gawker immediately debunked the O'Keefe video, explaining that the area O'Keefe claims to have crossed in includes a "well-patrolled road that runs parallel to the river" and other obstacles that did not appear in his video.
And even Fox News dismissed O Keefe's latest stunt.
During the August 8 edition of The Five, Bolling explained that talking about real border issues is helpful, but "what's not helpful [is] ... filmmaker James O'Keefe donning an Osama Bin Laden mask and crossing the Rio Grande." Bolling added that O'Keefe should "give it a rest."
