CNN invites Breitbart on as ‘expert’ in Anthony Weiner non-story
This clip was painful to watch. I don’t know who the CNN anchor is who is treating Breitbart as the sage who broke this critical “story,” nor do I want to, but as Eric Boehlert of Media Matters pointed out, it wasn’t even a year ago that after the Shirley Sherrod “story” collapsed like a house of cards, Anderson Cooper said on his show that Breitbart’s behavior was “a classic example of what is wrong with our national discourse.”
Fortunately, Jeffrey Toobin, a CNN legal analyst, comes on at the end and says it’s “too bad that he got to say that stuff on CNN.”
Indeed. What’s too bad is that Breitbart and his bloggers are taken for anything more than the hucksters that they are.
