Breitbart “News” Beclowns Themselves Yet Again

Right wing journalism at its finest

I’ve taken a bit of a break from mocking the right wing idiots at breitbart.com lately, but this self-beclownment is so monumental it rivals Ben Shapiro’s hilarious “Friends of Hamas” smear against Chuck Hagel, as Larry O’Connor gets the vapors over President Obama’s recitation of an early version of the Gettysburg address for a Ken Burns film: OBAMA REMOVES ‘GOD’ FROM GETTYSBURG ADDRESS.

Then, six hours after the screaming anti-Obama headline comes the sheepish update:

UPDATE: A text box now appears on the Ken Burns website learntheaddress.org which states: “Did you know there are five versions of the Gettysburg Address? We asked President Obama to read the first, the Nicolay Version.” A cached version of the same webpage from several days ago shows no such reference.

Right, because O’Connor and the rest of the right wing crazysphere made such a stink about this moronic fake outrage that Ken Burns needed to post a clarification to stop the idiocy from spreading any further. Winning!

And speaking of clarifications, Larry — how about an update to your totally wrong headline?
