Breitbart Brain Trust Completely Destroys Own Websites

Breitbart’s heirs: the C team
Wingnuts • Views: 49,333

At Breitbart.com, all the little mini-Breits are scurrying around today, still trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear and hype their absurdly stupid attacks on President Obama for introducing Prof. Derrick Bell at Harvard 21 years ago.

Oh wait, I forgot — Obama hugged Prof. Bell too. When two black men hug, the republic is in horrible danger.

The latest smear they’re trying to float: they’re calling Prof. Bell a “racialist,” which is, of course, the term that white nationalists often use to describe themselves. Classy! OBAMA: ‘Open Up Your Hearts and Your Minds’ to Racialist Prof.

But meanwhile, as they were preparing to unleash this mind-shattering BOMBSHELL on the world, and destroy Barack Obama’s chances of reelection, they actually did succeed in destroying something besides their reputation — their own website.

Check out what happens if you click on any link at Google to articles at Big Government, Big Journalism, or Big Peace.

Yes, it’s true. All the direct links to old articles at all the “Big” sites are broken. They all redirect to the front page of breitbart.com.

That means no one who’s searching for an article at one of their sites can get to it through Google or Yahoo or Bing or any other search engine. I wonder how long it will take the Breitbart brain trust to notice that their traffic to thousands and thousands of articles has suddenly completely stopped? (Probably not long, now that I’m posting this.)

It’s been this way all week. When they redesigned breitbart.com (and got rid of its news feed services), they apparently changed their URL schema without even thinking about what would happen to the millions of existing links out there, and completely hosed all of their search results.

And it’s not just search engines; all links to their old articles at all websites are broken. Links at blogs, news sites, places like Digg and Reddit and LGF — all broken.

And they haven’t even noticed yet.

These are the geniuses who are going to carry on Andrew Breitbart’s legacy.

Alexa’s statistics are not the most accurate, but their graph of biggovernment.com’s traffic shows what happens when you totally screw up all incoming links to old articles:
