Things aren’t going very well for Andrew Breitbart in the defamation lawsuit filed against him by former USDA official Shirley Sherrod, and now Breitbart and his lawyers have been scolded by U.S. District Judge Richard Leon (a George W. Bush appointee): Federal Judge: Blogger Likely ‘Overreaching’ With Anti-SLAPP Motion.
In a new filing (PDF) this afternoon, U.S. District Judge Richard Leon expressed his displeasure with a decision by defendants in a defamation lawsuit to appeal his denial of their motion to dismiss.
At issue is former U.S. Department of Agriculture official Shirley Sherrod’s defamation lawsuit against blogger Andrew Breitbart and one of his colleagues, Larry O’Connor. Sherrod sued both men in Washington federal court in Feb. 2011, claiming they posted a deceptively edited clip of Sherrod online that eventually got her fired.
Breitbart and O’Connor moved to dismiss the case under a District of Columbia law barring strategic lawsuits against public participation, or SLAPPs. The anti-SLAPP law is designed to stop litigation aimed at chilling protected speech. Leon denied the motion in July in two-sentence minute orders. After the defendants’ appealed, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit asked Leon on Feb. 7 to explain his decision.
In the statement of reasons filed today, Leon said he denied the motion because the law, which went into effect last March, couldn’t be applied retroactively to Sherrod’s case, which was filed the month before. Even if the law could be applied retroactively, Leon wrote that the defendants missed their time window to file the motion.
“Regrettably,” Leon wrote, “it appears that the defendants will not be satisfied with this Court’s ruling until a considerable amount of additional judicial and litigant resources are expended on its ‘novel,’ if not overreaching, motion.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry is doing his best to sweep that “plastered” video under the rug; today he says he just “felt great,” and the video was edited to make him look bad.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he “felt great” during the speech he gave Friday that turned into a viral video online and brought negative attention to the presidential candidate, with some saying he appeared to be under the influence.
“It was a great crowd, a good response. I guess you can do anything you want with a video and make it look any way you want, but I felt good, felt great, and I think the message got across very well, so it was a good speech,” said Perry to reporters Tuesday in Des Moines, Iowa.
For reference, here’s the complete unedited video. And he definitely looks hammered to me.
Here’s Jon Stewart from last night’s Daily Show with his reaction to the edited version of his Fox News appearance with Chris Wallace.
If you watched the version of Jon Stewart’s interview with Chris Wallace that aired on Fox News, there were several very obvious cuts, and today Stewart is accusing Fox of editing the interview to make him seem like he was having “a nervous breakdown.”
Jon Stewart wants everyone to know that his Fox News appearance was not the real deal.
The comedian lambasted the network, arguing his Sunday interview with host Chris Wallace was edited to make him look like “a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.”
“I suggest you look at the unedited version online where my emotional states don’t seem to change so arbitrarily,” he said on his “Daily Show” Monday night. …
Stewart said the network edited the moment at which Wallace “basically gives away the game” by describing Fox News as a “counterweight” to NBC News.
Fox News, meanwhile, has their talking points together, as Bret Baier joins the attack on Stewart.
Fox News personality Bret Baier entered the fray Monday - calling Stewart’s perception of Fox News “insane.”
“He is a political force and there’s no denying it,” Baier said on the “Kilmeade and Friends” radio show. “He touches a lot of young people and he wants to be heard on politics but … when something goes wrong, he punts to ‘I’m a comedian.’”
Government Accountability Office Finds No Evidence to Support Breitbart and O’Keefe’s Attack on ACORN
The Government Accountability Office released a report today showing that Andrew Breitbart and James O’Keefe got away with a gigantic hoax on the American public, resulting in the unjust demise of an organization that helped the poorest and most disenfranchised: GAO Finds Little to Support Congress’ Abolition of ACORN.
A report issued today by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) finds little to support the charges that led to the demise of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a grassroots consumer advocacy organization driven out of existence by Congressional critics.
The GAO found that monitoring of awards to ACORN by government agencies generally consisted of reviewing progress reports and making site visits. Of 22 investigations of alleged election and voter registration fraud, most were closed without prosecution, the report found.
One of eight investigations of alleged voter registration fraud resulted in guilty pleas and seven were closed without action due to lack of evidence.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) reported five closed matters – one resolved, one dismissed and the others dropped after FEC “found no reason to believe the violations occurred.”
At its peak, ACORN was a collection of 1,200 community-based organizations in 100 U.S. cities that advocated for low- and moderate-income families.
In 2009, conservative activists released selectively edited videos claiming to show ACORN employees giving advice on hiding prostitution activities and avoiding taxes.
We have finally completed viewing the videos originating at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) from the UMSL course Introduction to Labor Studies. The excerpts that were made public showing the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) instructor Don Giljum and students as well as the UMKC instructor and students were definitely taken out of context, with their meaning highly distorted through splicing and editing from different times within a class period and across multiple class periods.
As stated previously, our campus supports academic freedom, civility, diversity, open discourse and the pursuit of knowledge. We support the academic freedom of faculty, staff and students at UMSL. Contrary to some reports, Don Giljum has not been fired from the campus faculty, and in fact, is completing the course; he remains eligible to teach at UMSL. We sincerely regret the distress to him and others that has been caused by the unauthorized copying, editing and distribution of the course videos.
During the past two weeks, we have received communications over a wide spectrum of viewpoints, and we appreciate people letting us know what they think. We have learned more about video and Internet technologies that can be beneficial or detrimental to positive, civil discourse, and security issues related to the use of such media. We shall explore ways to improve security in the use of electronic media for instruction, research and other activities.

Andrew Breitbart’s “Big Government” smear site is pushing yet another deceptively edited video, targeting two University of Missouri pro-union professors by cutting their statements up into grossly distorted excerpts to make it appear as if they’re advocating violence.
At this point, Breitbart and his cohorts are only playing to the choir, because anyone who’s not a complete fool knows better than to trust one of his edited videos.
Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government site is promoting another outrageous outrage today, claiming that reporters for Alaska TV station KTVA were caught on tape plotting to damage Joe Miller’s campaign.
After Breitbart’s smear campaigns against ACORN and Shirley Sherrod using edited and out of context recordings, what are the odds that this is another bogus hit piece?
Greg Sargent has a response from KTVA general manager Jerry Bever, who says that’s exactly what it is.
“It’s unfortunate that this recording has happened. It’s unfortunate because it does not accurately reflect the journalistic standards of our newsroom and the garbled context will no doubt leave more questions than answers. The Miller campaign’s analysis of the recording is incorrect in many material ways ranging from personnel involved in the conversation, the interpretation of conversation snippets and the reported transcript of the perceived garbled conversation.
“While the recording is real, the allegations are untrue. The recording was the result of a cell phone not being hung up after a call was placed to Randy DeSoto, Joe Miller campaign spokesperson, Thursday afternoon to discuss Joe Miller’s appearance on that evening’s newscast. That phone call was placed near the end of a coverage planning meeting in our newsroom regarding that evening’s Miller rally in downtown Anchorage. The group of KTVA news personnel was reviewing potential “what-if” scenarios, discussing the likelihood of events at the rally and how KTVA might logistically disseminate any breaking news.
“The perception that this garbled, out of context recording may leave is unfortunate, but to allege that our staff was discussing or planning to create or fabricate stories regarding candidate Miller is absurd. The complete conversation was about what others might be able to do to cause disruption within the Miller campaign, not what KTVA could do.”
