But their recent exploits and now their arrests have troubled some of those supporters. And they are now questioning the kind of guerilla journalism that connected the four young men and that many conservative activists celebrated when one of those arrested, James O'Keefe, secretly videotaped ACORN employees last year as they appeared to encourage him and a partner, posing as a pimp and prostitute, to circumvent the law.

"There is a responsible way to creatively generate a story or an incident which challenges the left in an ethical, yet aggressive way," said Steven Sutton, who heads campus journalism outreach at the conservative non-profit Leadership Institute in Arlington, Va., where O'Keefe worked in 2006 and early 2007 training right-leaning students on how to start and run publications. Sutton supervised O'Keefe at the institute until O'Keefe was asked to leave because his investigative work could interfere with the Institute's Internal Revenue Service standing.

"Then there's the other way, where you cross the line – and we teach people not to do that – and you expose yourself, whatever organization you're affiliated with, and the people that you're associated with to a deserved and justified backlash," Sutton said.
