... And the Self-Effacing Modesty of Walt Whitman

From the Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting blog, this amazing quotation from a USA Today piece on hoax artist James O'Keefe:
O'Keefe's tactics combine "the guerrilla of Borat, the gotcha of Dateline…and the gonzo approach of Hunter S. Thompson," O'Keefe said in an interview.
"I hope if I'm ever profiled by USA Today, I'll get to sing my own praises like that," FAIR writer Peter Hart concluded. Me too.
