    This got me laughing...

On Raw Story:
James O’Keefe laughed out of journalism school

For his latest stunt, the media prankster found himself at Columbia University’s journalism school with cameras rolling, angling to confront a professor about a colleague who’d cursed O’Keefe out in an email, calling him a “shithead” and closing, “Fuck you, man. Bring it on.”

Instead of an apoplectic reaction at the prankster’s amazing journalism skills, Sree Sreenivasan, Columbia Journalism School’s dean of students, turned on a camera and began questioning O’Keefe.

“Why didn’t you dress like you were in some of your other videos?” Sreenivasan asked, referencing the first deceptive video O’Keefe produced that catapulted him onto Fox News. Another cameraman in the room began laughing, at this point.

My favorite part, though, came at the end of the article.  “After he was done with me, I should have kept rolling, because they get to the exit and find they can’t open it,” Sreivasan later wrote on Twitter. “He says, ‘Have they locked us in?’ Turns out they were pulling the door instead of pushing it.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
