The update the bottom caught my interest:
UPDATE: Huffington Post reporter Arthur Delaney states that the protest was organized by a group called “Good Jobs Nation,” not SEIU as I previously reported, and that, remarkably, the protesters weren’t even federal employees at all but individuals who WORK in federal buildings affected by the shutdown.
Delaney and his HuffPo colleague Ryan J. Reilly have attacked me on Twitter, speculating on what the McDonald’s employee, Luis Chiliquinga, really thought, and chastising me for my editorial standards in reporting on what I recorded. The video speaks for itself.
ChangeToWin is run by a lot of big Union leaders – including Jimmy Hoffa Jr. So yes, PJ Media was right in so far as Unions were paying these people to protest – in fact, SEIU is listed as an affiliated union on the ABOUT page.
