The Vetting: CNN Implodes Over Breitbart's Obama/Bell Video
Breitbart ^ | 03-08-2012

Posted on 03/08/2012 6:54:43 PM PST by AAABEST

Video.

I have never seen a guy so masterfully shred an entire panel of lefties the way Pollak does here.

If you're on the Maobama/Bell story it's a must see. Nearly 1,500 comments at the link.

This story is about the media doing anything to defend and cover up Obama’s history. And CNN fell right into Breitbart’s trap.


I laughed and laughed when Soledad said ‘those are WHITE people at Bell’s speech, you can tell by the back of their heads’ and Pollak ~said say what!? Why cannot Obama align with MLKJR and judge character instead of color of skin?’

Soledad is apparently zero’s prime Democrat Media Complex race-baiter.

I was worried about that after AB died.

You are correct!, so far, Andrew left behind some very capable head hunters who are bound and determined to carry out AB vision of exposing the left(and right)destroyers of our country.

God Bless you Andrew Breitbart!

Joel Pollack is also a graduate of Harvard Law (so he probably knows something about CRT, and may have even had a class with Bell), and Pollack's wife is mixed race (as is Soledad).

Here is a video of Julia Pollack from Joel's congressional campaign in 2010:

Pollak for Congress TV Ad 1 - "Julia"

Julia is a graduate of Harvard as well, with a degree in economics, and enlisted in the U.S. Navy last year. She graduated boot camp at the top of her class:

SR Julia Pollak - Military Excellence Award - March 11, 2011

Soledad is not fit to carry Joel or Julia socks (have to keep it family friendly).

Is the white guy who they used to play the race card “Eddie Lebec” from Cheers? I haven’t seen him for some time but he always comes off as very angry and preachy. He’s like Lewis Black when Lewis Black is doing his schtick.

I loved the snarky comment by the one guy “Breitbart and what is left of his organization. . . “ They wish. Breitbart lives on and his organization was more than one man especially since it is fueled by the very MSM that decries it. It is a good thing too. I am more convinced than ever that the one and only key to winning this election is focusing on, discrediting and exposing the MSM. Obama is an empty suit who can’t run on his record. Without the MSM covering for him by out and out lying and relentlessly spinning he is toast.

As for the clip, Soledad and the most of the others missed what the bombshell is. I argue it is not even about Bell. It is that it exists and was never shown. They also miss the point of Breitbart. His job was easy (except for the hatorade he had to endure). All Breitbart had to do was show up on the MSM, like Pollack did here, and let the MSM do their thing, i.e. playing the race card, acting hysterical and showing just how far they will go to cover for Obama and other leftists. Soledad took the bait hook, line and sinker and Pollack gaffed her onto the deck to flop around.

Bravo

Soledad O’brien was picked by CNN for her looks and babblemouth. Nothing else.

The white guy with the beard sounded like a 60’s mindless agitator.

Ogletree is the father of Black Reparations, supported by the marxist Black Radical Congress, Rev. Jeremiah Wright (A BRC supporter, by himself and through his church in Chicago), and with the support of other black extremists including James Cone, Ron Karenga, N’COBRA, and Bob Brown, Stokley Carmichael’s successor in the AARP and other fronts he created.

A lot of this can be found at www.keywiki.org, in Trevor Loudon’s series of “Blogspot.com” columns. There is a special 5 part report on the Reparations movement somewhere in KW. It has a lot of names, dates, organizations, etc. but not enough on Ogletree, Holder, and Obama.

The was no bombshell in the video. BUT, Andrew was a master at giving the MSM a little bit of rope at a time and letting them hang themselves. I pray that is what is happening right now. It would be an amazing final tribute to him.

“Breitbart and what is left of his organization. . . "

Did you see how he rolled his eyes when he said that? Infuriating. Makes me think even more they all know someone took AB out.

And the actor was Jay Thomas. What they think he contributes to the conversation (other than getting PO'd and flustered) is anyone's guess.

.....And he enjoyed watching their reactions every step of the way...until the final gotcha moment.

This is only the beginning I think....of likely more to come.

Oh, there was sort of a bombshell. Remember that in the 2008 campaign each time Obama was cornered with Wright or Ayers, he could always deny, deny, deny. Afterall, there was no pictures of him sitting in Wright’s church. Now, these kinds of videos linking him directly with radicals are surfacing. Hey Soledad, drip, drip, drip.

I do agree with you by the way, I think that Breitbart is sandbagging the MSM.

Soledad O'bien has been trading on her racially charged first name since she hit smart ass mode, as a media newsreader on a third rate network. She can always be counted upon to twist and wiggle in her seat at the most contentous points that outnumbered conservatives make on her show, so we know that Polack's really hit it out of the park on her racial indignation meter.

The other interviewer looked like he just came home at 3AM after a bender. I haven't watched that network for ever., so I don't know who he is anyway

Well, I am not into conspiracy theories. But I think they miss what Breitbart is (and I say is) about. So, he releases those tapes and they don’t look too bad. Ahhh, but what does look horrid is how the MSM freaks and goes into cover mode. I think Breitbart fully understood that it was the reaction from the MSM that was the real story. Inflame the MSM and then Expose, expose, expose.

Well He did say this was the first of more that would follow throughout Obm’s early years as well as his administration...that this will be the vetting of Obm so it's fair to say we can expect more .....However i tend to think they're going to be timed for impact on this election as Obm steps up his game now. At issue however will be if the mainstream media will give it air-time.....I tend to think they will close it up or but give it a glance once it starts to impact.

As we saw in CNN'S reaction....they are not going to make fools of themsleves again , so I suspect they'll have guests who can hammer away at anthing Breit arranged....this was likely a test to see how media would respond.

The best part of the tape was the guy at the end who said they had kept 'this video hidden throughout Obm's run'.....one of many as we know.

Thanks for the video clip - classy lady (classy couple).

Damned shame he wasn’t able to knock off Schakowsky - in a party of screaming loonies, she’s one of the worst. But given the make up of that district, he didn’t have much of a chance (it was great watching him give it a try, though).

And having observed his congressional run to at least a small extent, I feel even worse about butchering the spelling of his name!

The black woman is Amy Holmes, Glenn Becks chief news person for The Blaze and on his TV station. She’s great.

First I've noted her and have to say she let them dribble on but brought the issue of why this wasn't seen and discused right back on the table. Good move..and I liked how she presented her arguement. "Amy Holmes"...I'll be watching for her.

Don’t know if you saw this on FR awhile ago - comedian Trevor Noah from South Africa. He jokes how he always wanted to come to America to be a “black man”. (He’s mixed race from South Africa). At 2:35 he makes a funny comment about “African Americans”.

I watched some of his other interviews and surprised how serious he was - and REALLY interesting to hear him speak about how comedy is gaining popularity in Africa. He said there used to be “joke tellers”, and “funny men” - but no real comedy - so it is still in its infancy in Africa. Amazing some of those interviews. “Well you know, its tough to make a wise crack of your president and then they throw you in jail.”

He might just want to watch what he wishes for. Everyone in this country has their ideas about what a black man is supposed to be, or not be.

Come to think about it, that probably goes for every racial type. This country is just nuts on the subject. It wears me out.

I think Andrew had plans to send the nastiest and most craven of the Journolisters copies of what’s to come for them to stew over.

Soledad confirmed that with her ‘but what about the rest of the tapes’ gnawsis throughout the whole segment.

Classic neurotic need of leftists to discover who knows what and when, that’s their currency, not real journalism.
