Columbia Journalism School Dean of Students Sree Sreenivasan (@sree) is confronted by conservative activist James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII), of NPR-, ACORN-, and Planned Parenthood-snookering fame, at roughly 11 a.m. EST on Monday, November 7.
I was sitting working on a story when I noticed a couple of people with a camera and a microphone talking with Sree, but I didn't think too much of it until Sree stood up and said that the guy with the microphone was James O'Keefe.
O'Keefe wanted a response to his allegations that a Columbia professor Dale Maharidge had sent him a "profanity-laced" e-mail, and that another had advocated the re-election of Barack Obama.
Afterwards, O'Keefe told me outside the school that he was interviewing Sree as part of his new campaign, "To Catch A Journalist."
"We've caught your professors on tape talking about the need to re-elect the president," he said. "I think it's time for you guys to start practicing a bit of introspection. I think that journalism professors need to not determine what politicians to elect, and they need to do more fact finding in order to let the public determine that."
"You have to excuse me, because I have to go get someone's comment right now," he said.
