Soledad O’Brien on Breitbart’s Bombshell: ‘Where’s the Bombshell?’
In this CNN clip, breitbart.com editor Joel Pollak is grilled by Soledad O’Brien in a way I wish more journalists would follow. Instead of just nodding along as Pollak blatantly misrepresents the work of Harvard’s first black tenured law professor, Derrick Bell, O’Brien tells Pollak that he’s full of it, and keeps asking him, “What part of that was the bombshell? ‘Cause I don’t get it.” Beautiful.
It’s almost cute, in a highly dysfunctional way, to see Pollak doing his best to emulate the departed Andrew by turning it into an attack on Soledad O’Brien — and failing miserably.
