      The "outrage" is because they didn't reject it out of hand from the get-go.

        ... the outrage would be that they didn't reject it by telling those nasty eevil Mooslims to go back to wherever-it-is they came from.  

        And if they had told them to go back to wherever-it-is, the outrage would have been that they didn't do it strongly enough.  

        And if they did it with a string of cusswords, the outrage would have been that they didn't kick them out physically, as in, boot to butt.  

        The Outrage needed something to justify its existence.

        Emotions lead and reason follows with an explanation.

      The people involved in the sting did not actually have $5 million. They were POSING as potential donors.

      Oh, and better news: O'Keefe has announced there is more footage to come in a few days. I wonder if the Aspen Institute will welcome Ron Schiller with open arms.

        Believe his false claims at your peril.

        Yes, it's true there wasn't actually money, but O'Keefe must claim his targets believed there was money before he can condemn them for telling the truth. The bottom line is that their refusal says they NPR doesn't accept suspicious donations.

        If O'Keefe plans to argue they didn't accept because there was no money, then he must also agree that he was the one who was punked.
