When the GOP is exposed, by tricky methods it's called a "Prank";
When Dems are exposed, by tricky methods, it's called a "Sting";
When a "journalist" dresses up like pimp to "expose" ACORN and gather supposed evidence of criminal activity and corruption, no media outlets crowed that ACORN was "punked." It was treated as a serious investigation and the perpetrators were treated as heroes of investigative journalism. At least on some networks.
Walker was not "Punked"

Why is That?
Why when Dems do stuff like this, WE are just "playing a Joke"?
When the R's do it -- it's serious -- cough -- Journalism, and don't you forget it!
Was it a Sting or was it a Prank?
When 60 Minutes uses a "hidden camera" to catch 'dishonest car mechanics', do we discount the findings?
NO, charges are brought, against those committing Fraud. Dishonest People go to jail.
When Fox-affiliated "reporters" pretend to be pimps and prostitutes, to trick ACORN workers into saying something embarrassing, do we discount the findings?
NO, the "hidden-camera tape" is looped on TV for weeks, until community organizing ACORN is ultimately De-funded. Honest People are fired. Public service Careers are tarnished. And those in need, go without help.
It ever we were given a "smoking gun" of evidence showing the REAL intentions of the Big Money war being waged against the Working Class, Ian Murphy "pretending" to be David Koch -- has uncovered just that evidence.
Scott Walker was Stung -- Big Time!
Question is, will it stick? Will the traditional Media brush it off as a childish Prank; Or will some Reporters dig into the exposed motives, and get to the REAL "rot" in our Political system?
Here's the "Sting" transcript clearly showing Union Busting Walker -- trying to keep his Billionaire Benefactor happy and "in the loop". 20 minutes worth of "trying".
Busted: Scott Walker fell for Prankster posing as David Koch
by LaurenMonica dailykos -- Wed Feb 23, 2011
Dems need stand tall on this one. It is a crack in hull of the GOP Titanic. We must not let them repair it ... Let them make this "pesky leak" simply "go away".
The GOP is playing for keeps -- they want to sink Workers -- they want to take away OUR Rights.
We have the "smoking gun" that proves it.
If only we can start calling what it was -- a Journalist Sting.
Union Busting is not a Joke.
The Traditional Media should quit "blaming Walker's incompetent staff"
and start blaming the Walker-Koch game plan -- which has little to DO with ACTUAL Budget Balancing.
... as the Sting Transcript, clearly shows.
