“The country desperately needs another thousand more Andrew Breitbarts”

“The country desperately needs another thousand more Andrew Breitbarts”

Rush Limbaugh’s broadcast a year ago on the day of Andrew Breibart’s death, March 1, 2012.

One of the best memorials I’ve heard.

For background on the lies told about Breitbart’s Shirley Sherrod tape, and how it supposedly was misleading, see my post Repeat after me: “The Shirley Sherrod tape was not misleading” and the earlier Dissecting Shirley Sherrod’s Complaint Against Andrew Breitbart.

The lie about the Sherrod tape being misleading now is embedded casually in almost every mainstream media and left-wing discussion of Breitbart.  The agenda-driven media is the single biggest problem we have.

Is it true the coroner doing the Breitbart autopsy was found dead by poison shortly before he was to release the results of the autopsy? Were the results of the autopsy ever released? We know the FBI or Secret Service has ways of doing away with those who become a threat to Obama and his regime. I still think Breitbart was murdered by the government to shut him up.

    there’s no evidence of that, we don’t need rank conspiracy theories.

    It wasn’t the coroner, it was a Michael Cormier, and autopsy technician in the LA coroner’s office. He died of arsenic poisoning. I don’t want to offend our host, but this whole affair was very suspicious. The Daily Beast has an article about mysterious death of Cormier.

I admired Breitbart as much as anyone, but if someone felt the need to kill him, why is Limbaugh still alive? Also, as far as we know, his family doesn’t suspect foul play.

The Left makes its profit from manipulating perception. Yet, they are not a monolithic bloc. They can’t be. The internal conflicts cannot be fully reconciled.

More Black Men in Jail Than in College? Wrong

And so a myth was born, to be exploited for political, economic, and social opportunity. But, what are the side-effects? These are presumably tactical measures with long-term consequences.

We are being led by a closet Marxist backed by an army of English majors.

“The agenda-driven media is the single biggest problem we have.”

Yes. Correct. Right!

We’ve seen in at work in various ways in just the past few weeks.

Hagel DID have links…including financial benefits…to Iranian front groups, and Iran DOES use Hamas as a surrogate. Those are clear liniments to some really dark forces arrayed against American interests, connected to a guy who would be SecDef.

But instead of simply asking questions about this apparent linkage, American media fell on Breitbart’s organization for the grave sin of using the term “Friends Of Hamas” one time in a series of pieces.

That became the story.

Likewise the Woodward imbroglio. You have a series of presidential lies told to support a campaign of demagoguery, and the story is subverted to an examination of whether Woodward felt genuinely threatened by an Obami.

Now, today, that same Obami has admitted…yet again…the sequester was an Obamic creation, but the GOP made him do it.

It will be interesting to see what irrelevant gnat-straining the media finds to distract from that steaming pile of scandalous BS.

“We are all Andrew Breitbart now.”

“The agenda-driven media is the single biggest problem we have.”

And yet, if you ask individually, they will tell you that is not the case. What they do is much simpler than that. They copy.

It doesn’t take more than a line or two to answer the core questions for any news story, that is “Who, what, where when, how and why.” When the “news” is a follow-on, they copy old context from the old story. And if they chose an old story with a lie in it, well, it’s somebody else’s problem, and probably only somebody’s opinion.

The best thing that could happen to the quality of our national dialog would be for New York Times v. Sullivan to be modified.
