Breitbart claims a scalp?
Remember when Democratic congressman Bob Etheridge went berserk on two kids who were harassing him on the streets of Washington, D.C.? And everyone was wondering who those kids were? And the GOP denied it? Guess what? It was the GOP.
This article links to the New York Times, where this statement appears:
Only this week did Republican strategists acknowledge they were behind the episode.
I cannot find an admission. Breitbart was suspected at the time:
Democrats are seeking to raise questions about the video, which first appeared on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government, because of what’s widely viewed as the media’s mishandling of the ACORN story, which emerged without context from edited videos. In particular, party officials say the video was likely taken by a tracker for the Republican Party, which would explain the effort taken to conceal his identity.
Although this is not an admission, it looks like bragging:
The beginning of the end of Democrat Rep. Etheridge started here…
And it is accompanied by a promise to do more:
I don’t want to say that New Media took a scalp with Etheridge, because it’s not about that. It’s about breaking the MSM monopoly and letting the American people decide what information is important and relevant and what isn’t.
The masses are not asses, the MSM knows this, which is why they so desperately want to control the flow of information. The rise of righteous New Media may not be fast enough for some but just take a moment to remember what the media landscape was like just ten years ago — and it’s only going to get better.
