If You Can’t Beat Them, Silence Them: Left Blacklists Breitbart, ABC Caves

Home - by - November 2, 2010 - 09:36 America/New_York - 10 Comments

My Latest Posty at NewsReal:

The Left nauseatingly pays lip service to the terms ‘tolerance’ and ‘diversity.’ In reality, they are highly intolerant and they hate diversity, particularly diversity of thought. They hate free markets and really loathe free marketplaces of ideas. As such, the stompy foot temper tantrums were in full force when it was announced that Andrew Breitbart and Dana Loesch, Editor In Chief of Breitbart’s Big Journalism, would be participating in ABC’s election night coverage. A coordinated effort between the usual suspects immediately, and predictably, sprung up. How dare ABC include people who won’t merely spout the Left’s talking points and somehow blame George W. Bush and people too stupid to understand the “nuance” of Democrats and their policies?  Oh, and racists, natch.

The first usual suspect to start shrieking in typical intolerant lefty fashion was the ever-inane Media Matters. Media Matters, an organization filled with tools so sanctimonious that they give themselves titles like “Senior Fellow.” Dude. You are a blogger. They, of course, offered only ad hominem attacks on Breitbart, like calling him a “propagandist.” Hello, pot! Meet kettle.  Cowardly ABC  immediately started to spin, by offering Media Matters this wuss statement:

ABC News’ David Ford told Media Matters: “He will be one of many voices on our air, including Bill Adair of Politifact. If Andrew Breitbart says something that is incorrect, we have other voices to call him on it.”

Because, of course, the liberally biased Politifact would be the one to go to if Andrew Breitbart did something pesky like, you know, tell the truth. The ever buffoonish Keith Olbermann weighed in as well and, having no actual argument, resorted to fart jokes. No, really. The Huffington Post joined the fray and soon thereafter ABC spinelessly caved and issued a statement walking back Andrew Breitbart’s participation on election night; a statement full of lies, even going so far as to claim that Andrew Breitbart was never meant to be part of that night’s broadcast coverage. Alas, email is a funny thing. The emails sent from ABC to Andrew Breitbart expose the truth. ABC executives, in an attempt to cover their own hides out of fear of the Left not only caved to the Left’s intimidation attempts, but also lied when they did so. A snippet:

    This is good! More people will know about this now than if he actually went on the show. What is their audience 15? 20?

    I cancelled my subscriptions to ABC, CBS, and NBC. Since I have satellite, I had to pay extra for those channels. Other than a couple sporting events, I never watched them, anyway. Now, I never will. To hell with those liberal pukes and all who associate with them.

    I’m surprised they would even think of allowing Breitbart to appear. They are one of the “A”ctive “B”ias “C”hannels.

    Well that solves a predicament for me. I was going to try to squeeze in some ABC election coverage tonight, due only to Breitbart’s participation. Guess it’s not an issue any more. ABC weenies.
