OMG, bloggers at Big Government actually think reporters take the site seriously?June 04, 2010 2:41 pm ET by Eric Boehlert
Apparently, they do. Apparently, Breitbart's team at Big Government is under the impression that serious, independent journalists use the site as a clearinghouse for information and fact-checking.
Question: Do Big Government bloggers also believe unicorns live over the rainbow?
Seriously, though, this is just nuts. It's one thing for Breitbart's team to devote so many hours each day to typing up whatever loony conspiracy theories and hateful attacks pop into their collective brains. And trust me, the passion they display for making stuff up, and doing it around the clock, is really quite amazing. I'm hard-pressed to think of other sites that create as much patently false content online as do the bloggers at Breitbart's site.
So, yes, I get that. I get that the site is a misinformation hub for Obama haters who require a nearly hourly confirmation of the president's evil status. But this idea that actual reporters read the Breitbart dreck and use it as a research site? Well, that's quite comical.
But at least two Breitbart bloggers are under that delusional impression. The two are Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King, who continue with their completely creepy, borderline stalking, obsession with Jodie Evans, the co-founder of the anti-war group Code Pink. Oh, I'm sorry, she's co-founder of the "terrorist support group Code Pink," as Taylor and King put it. So, no, subtlety is not their thing. But hate does rate high on their priority list.
Appears MM does not dispute the statements of BG - simply trying demean them ala Alinsky.
Good work Andrea and Andy. Kick ‘em again. Harder.
No, Breitbart does not think reporters take their site seriously, what is disturbing is that “reporters” seem to take the crappy, lying MediaMatters seriously.
DC warlord ping!
“Code Pink” ping!
Wow! Breitbart bloggers has got ‘em a smattering over at Media Smatters.
Doesn’t this rate a barf alert?
