The disconnect of the well-connected
But the earlier anger of the week was nearly as bad. ABC tried to sneak Andrew Breitbart in as part of its news analysis of the election. It then back-peddled as fast as possible, saying oh, he’s just one of many.
But look at this weaselly quote:
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.”
First of all, no you won’t call him on anything.
Second, only in the world of the Village the last thirty years has a right-wing propagandist been countered by a non-partisan “fact-checking” guy. Never a liberal. Can’t. Have. That.
God forbid Jane Hamsher, Duncan Black, Marcy Wheeler, or Digby be allowed to speak on broadcast television in the presence of the “esteemed” Andrew Breitbart.
