ABC News Drops Breitbart From Election Night Coverage

Reported by Ellen - November 2, 2010 -

One of the reasons ABC dropped him is Breitbart's exaggeration of his role in their coveage. Just as our Alex nailed it.

ABC News posted its letter to Breitbart which it said he had received:

Dear Mr. Breitbart,

We have spent the past several days trying to make clear to you your limited role as a participant in our digital town hall to be streamed on ABCNews.com and Facebook. The post on your blog last Friday created a widespread impression that you would be analyzing the election on ABC News. We made it as clear as possible as quickly as possible that you had been invited along with numerous others to participate in our digital town hall. Instead of clarifying your role, you posted a blog on Sunday evening in which you continued to claim a bigger role in our coverage. As we are still unable to agree on your role, we feel it best for you not to participate.

Sincerely,

Andrew Morse

Although it's hard to understand why ABC News wanted any commentary from Breitbart in the first place, we are glad they recognized and rectified their mistake.
