Ken (Nichols) O’Keefe in the Media
I must say one thing; being on television or having articles written about me or my actions never made me feel any better about myself. I do not judge myself based on the opinions of anyone but myself and those who know me, so the misquotes, quotes out of context, character assassinations and outright lies of which I have been subjected are all confirmation that I am actually doing something useful. If ever I become a media darling than I will seriously question what the hell I am doing.
For those intelligent enough to question everything they read and who know the value of getting straight to the source I do stand by every live interview I have ever done. The list that follows is mostly my words exactly (live interviews or my written words).
The bottom line is that I have used the media as the media has used me, except I have used them to propagate the truth.
