Disingenuous innocence

Pamela Geller got an email from Joseph Nassralla. Nassralla claims - and by all indications he's telling the truth - that Innocence of Muslims was a Bowfinger scam. "Sam Bacile" filmed him and others having promised them that the movie was going to be a documentary on the persecution of Copts. What has come out instead, as we all know, was a 13 minute disjointed "trailer" for a screed against all of Islam.

I can see why "Bacile" doesn't have many friends.

Which is not to say that the circus is justified. Innocence is guerrilla theatre. Interviewing people under false pretences and then honestly drawing conclusions from their actual words is... well, the Yes Men and Michael Moore do that all the time. 60 Minutes does it all the time. And what about To Catch a Predator?
