Andrew Breitbart is steaming mad that the Associated Press “whitewashed” his 118 word comment on the ACORN report. And you know what? I agree. I think that if readers of the AP’s account of the report saw just want kind of a frothing-at-the-mouth lunatic Breitbart is, it would give some actual balance to the piece.
Pete Yost of the Associated Press asked for my comment regarding the findings of the ACORN “internal investigation.” Here is what I emailed him:
ACORN is a corrupt and criminal organization, and anyone with open eyes can see this. Yet SEIU’s Andy Stern and left wing puppetmaster John Podesta, of the Soros-funded radical leftist think-tank, the Center for American Progress, chose to architect a whitewashed ‘internal investigation’ by a Democrat Party hack from Massachusetts, and have put immense efforts into launching a two-pronged propaganda campaign and legal assault against the filmmakers of the ‘pimp and prostitute’ exposé and the story’s publisher. BigGovernment.com continues to expose ACORN’s illegal activity and has helped to illuminate how corrupt organizations like ACORN, SEIU and HCAN are coordinating the efforts to shove radical health care reform down an unwilling majority of Americans throats.
Here is the sole excerpt from the above statement chosen for the article:
The report is “a whitewashed ‘internal investigation’ by a Democrat Party hack from Massachusetts,” said conservative columnist Andrew Breitbart, who is being sued by ACORN along with James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, who played the prostitute and her boyfriend in the videos. Breitbart posted the videos on his Web site.
I wanted the BigGovernment.com readers to see that’s it’s not just the internal investigators who are whitewashing the magnitude of the ACORN scandal, it’s the mainstream media writ large.
So come on, Pete Yost! Publish Breitbart’s full comment. It will really illuminate what kind of whackos are fixated on ACORN. Maybe then we can get back to, you know, actual issues.
