James O’Keefe of Whitebread Pimp fame plotted to lure a CNN reporter into a 13-year-old’s fantasy of what a sex den looks like.

The purpose? Um…okay, well, you see, he would lure her into a room full of dildos and then, well, uh, he’s standing up for women?

The document discusses the potential fallout from the operation.

“If they pursue this as you are a creep, you should play it up with them initially only to reveal that the tape was made beforehand confirming this was a gag,” the document states. “If they [CNN] admit it was a gag, you should release the footage and focus on the fact they got punked, and make sure to emphasize Abbie’s name and overall status to help burden her career with this video, incident and her bad judgment in pursuing you so aggressively.”

Finally, “if they go on the attack, you should point out the hypocrisy in CNN using the inherent sexuality of these women to sell viewers and for ratings, passing up more esteemed and respectable journalists who aren’t bubble-headed bleach blondes and keep the focus on CNN.”

The sad part? Despite literally making no sense whatever, it would have worked to drive a media narrative.
