“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.”
Creepy dude with serious credibility issues attempts to lure female journalist onto his boat to sexually humiliate her and embarrass her news organization.
Jesus Christ, these people just won’t stop with the invented controversies.
It almost feels like we’re intentionally being distracted from something.
Possibly the ludicrous imbalance of power and wealth concentrated at the top.
The notes on how to handle PR misfires are especially telling.

I’m pretty sure that my feeling that O’Keefe’s heart is filled with dog vomit and cigarette butts is driving my anti-misogynistic reading of this incident.
But I’m pretty sure I’m still right.
Feminism is hard.
This pisses me off so much and I feel like everybody needs to read this.
