10 Reasons Why Andrew Breitbart Is Still A Lying S***Head

Reported by Ellen - June 8, 2011 -

Mark Howard has an excellent post at AlterNet called 10 Reasons Andrew Breitbart Should Apologize (Or Just Shut Up and Go Away) which reviews some of Breitbart's "greatest" hits.

Many of the examples will be familiar to News Hounds readers, such as the ACORN and Shirley Sherrod incidents which played so prominently on Fox News. But others pertain only to Breitbart's website and are just as damning. For example, Howard notes that after Breitbart protege James O'Keefe was exposed for trying to seduce and humiliate CNN reporter Abbie Boudreau, Breitbart provided a platform for O'Keefe to publish this stomach-turning "defense:"

“She would have had to consent before being filmed and she was not going to be faux ‘seduced’ unless she wanted to be.”

Like us, Howard believes that Breitbart's very soiled record should not be considered rehabilitated in the wake of his one (apparently) correct handling of the Weinergate story.

Just because Charles Manson didn’t kill Marilyn Monroe doesn’t mean that he’s innocent of every other crime attributed to him.

Breitbart deserves no accolades over this, and he still owes the many people he deliberately harmed an apology. Weiner, at least, was man enough to own up to his mistakes, eventually.

Indeed.
