Hidden-Camera Sting Sparks Ethics Debate

A secret recording of a media sting operation led to the resignation of a fundraiser and opened up debate on the ethics of such techniques. One incident involved the governor of Wisconsin being fooled into believing he was talking to a major contributor of the fundraiser. The sting was orchestrated by a journalist named James O'Keefe and it set off an intense media debate about its ethics. The Los Angeles Time and the Philadelphia Magazine both commented on this subject. I believe this should be somthing that is argued about. Many people will feel that this sting was unethical and should not be done while others probably feel that it is perfectly fine.
