The absolute worst part of the whole Anthony Weiner scandal is that Andrew Breitbart is getting media time. The ultimate dirtbag, even wins over Fox News Roger Ailes, feels that Weiner coming clean somehow vindicates him. Breitbart stated in his own news conference that he has never told “one provable lie.” What the hell this man is talking about? Media Matters has an entire guide doing just that, proving almost everything the scumbag says is a lie.
Breitbart runs a blog called Big Government. Although it often contains absolutely no facts and in many cases, it is completely made up rhetoric, Fox News regularly uses this drivel as a source further proving that that station is not a news network. Breitbart perpetuated the whole ACORN as something evil story that Fox quickly picked up and ran with. Claiming that ACORN was engaged in a child prostitution ring, Breitbart posted deliberately altered videos as “proof.” Breitbart ruthlessly attacked a Department of Education staffer for starting a gay rights organization and seems to be obsessed with “fisting.” The worst smear of all of Breitbart’s attack was against Shirley Sherrod. Using edited video, Breitbart made it appear that Sherrod, a Department of Agriculture employee, was using her position to discriminate against white farmers. Breitbart’s misleading video led to Sherrod’s forced resignation. Soon after, the entire video was released where it was clear that Breitbart purposely took Sherrod’s statements out of context. There are plenty more examples of this dirtbag’s lies and smears. He has told many, many very provable lies.
It is bad enough that Fox News actually takes this idiot seriously. But, now because of the Weiner-gate, other news outlets are actually listening to Breitbart. I woke up on Tuesday morning and saw him on CNN. Isn’t CNN still pretending to be an actual news network? That was some hard-hitting news journalism, asking Breitbart if he felt vindicated. This man received something that was factual this time. But, it was not real journalism but just some luck. He is wrong more times than he is right. Please, do not treat this man as if he uncovered some great story. The story was already unraveling and this dude had no part of it.
