This amounts to yet another epic spin fail for the left, this week.
Yesterday, we were asked to believe that Planned Parenthood was on to the undercover activists from Live Action, having notified the Department of Justice in the wake of their “stunts” at a number of Planned Parenthood offices throughout New Jersey.
Today, we hear, via Hot Air:
The Planned Parenthood abortion clinic staffer who appears in a new undercover investigation video assisting two people who claim to be heading up a sex trafficking ring has been fired.
Late Tuesday night, Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey released a statement saying she staff person, Perth Amboy center clinic manager Amy Woodruff, would be let go.
“We were profoundly shocked when we viewed the videotape released this morning, which depicted an employee of one of our health centers behaving in a repugnant manner that is inconsistent with our standards of care and is completely unacceptable,” Phyllis Kinsler, executive director of the local affiliate, said a statement, according to NJ.com.
Well ouch. What is Media Matters going to say, now that we know that Lila Roses’ Live Action sting at the Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey didn’t produce a HOAX VIDEO, after all?:
HOAX VIDEO EXPOSED: Planned Parenthood Already Reported “Sex Trafficking” To FBI
Today, anti-abortion rights propagandist Lila Rose released her latest in a series of heavily edited videos seeking to demonstrate that Planned Parenthood engages in criminal activities. Rose’s organization, Live Action, claims their video exposes what they call “Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of child sex trafficking.”
Except that isn’t what the video shows at all.
Rather, the Live Action video shows edited comments made by a single Planned Parenthood employee. Live Action has so far refused to publicly release the full video of the incident, instead posting what the organization itself admits is an “abridged 11-minute video.” (Live Action claims they are “sending full footage” to law enforcement officials.) [UPDATE: Live Action subsequently released what they say is the full video.]
The “heavily edited” defense doesn’t seem to have convinced the executive director of the local PP affiliate.
One wonders how the left will proceed to defend the indefensible.
Whatever they come up with, their drone readers will swallow it hook, line and sinker.
The Media Matters thread linked to above degenerated into a Bristol Palin bash-fest after only the second comment.
More amazing dissembling from Media Matters, here: Lila Rose’s Video Contradicts Her Claim That Planned Parenthood Is Corrupt:
Here, the Media Matters writer actually tries to make the case that because Woodruff advised the nice young couple to go to another facility, it demonstrates the proper due diligence of Planned Parenthood. While 15 year old sex slaves can have an abortion at their facilities, 14 year olds are advised to go somewhere else – like to “Dr” Gosnell’s clinic, for example. His argument is that this type of corruption isn’t endemic at Planned Parenthood, even though Live Action videos have proven repeatedly, otherwise.
Lila Rose has declined to say whether Live Action will be releasing videos from any of the other clinics that Planned Parenthood says were visited between Jan. 11-15 by men posing as sex traffickers. Perhaps she’s emulating the master media manipulator?
Yeah, there’s more to come:
Lila Rose at Big Government:
PP’s response to the release of the video? First, they claimed the footage was a “hoax” because it was “highly edited.”(emphasis mine) Live Action released the full footage.
Then Planned Parenthood used the contrived back-up plan they hatched last week, claiming they had reported the sex traffickers immediately following Live Action’s undercover visits to their clinics. But the undercover footage tells quite a different story. No shock, no outrage, no report, only a clinic manager working with the pimp and prostitute to enable their prostitution ring of underage girls.
By Tuesday night we get news that PP has effectively thrown their employee under the bus and fired her. Now why would they do that if she and the others had reported the abuse, like they claim?
Indeed. And why does Planned Parenthood and Media Matters sound so darn alike in all their dissembling?
The visual evidence speaks for itself. And there’s more to come. Planned Parenthood is scrambling to silence our story and evidence. But in the end, the truth will get out.
Read Live Action’s statement from this morning here.
Will Media Matters allow itself to be rope-a-doped further into defending the indefensible? (That was a rhetorical question). Clearly, they’ve learned nothing from their ACORN experience.
@Andrew Breitbart is hosting a Tweet-war on this very topic on Twitter. The MM forces can’t seem to explain the video, or the fact that the manger got fired.
Pundette found some info on that facility the PP of Central NJ was sending it’s younger patients: Safe and legal: Ruptured uterus, rusty crochet hooks
