In this hard-hitting look at the way media and government conspire to protect the status quo, controversial ambush journalist James O'Keefe shows the reader what happens when a young citizen journalist challenges some of America's most powerful and protected organizations.James O'Keefe has been on the front lines of journalism since his student days at Rutgers. In Breakthrough, he takes the reader through his effrts to expose the duplicity of Planned Parenthood, ACORN, Medicaid, NPR, the New Jersey Educational Association, labor unions and politicians. He shows how the major media slandered him at almost every turn, how state officials harassed him, and how federal officials arrested him and his colleagues on contrived charges in New Orleans. While still on federal probation, legal necessity forced O'Keefe to train an army of citizen journalists to take on what mentor Andrew Breitbart called his "most consequential" investigation to date: a series of video stings that revealed the total vulnerability of American elections to vote fraud. O'Keefe tells the story of his team's harrowing adventures, as O'Keefe learns that we are not nearly as free a people as we think we are. Breakthrough shows the opportunity that still exists for independent journalists to break through the media firewall, reshape public opinion, and inspire political reform.
