Media History

The reporting was intended for these media types: Television, Internet

Effects and Outcomes

Although the veracity of many of O'Keefe's videos have been questioned, their effect has been unquestionably huge, at least among the targeted organizations and conservative activists.  O'Keefe's first Planned Parenthood investigation is still influencing an anti-abortion push to paint the organization as supporting black genocide.  ACORN went bankrupt as a result of O'Keefe's 2009 undercover videos at various offices of the organization.  NPR's CEO and Foundation President both resigned after a heavily edited version of a conversation with the latter was recorded and made public.
