Debunking Breitbart's "Occupy Rape List"

-Blogged by Keith Olbermann on the Daily Kos, February 15, 2012-

You saw the video of his mad rant against Occupy, then you saw the "list" cobbled together in far too much of a hurry to rationalize the rant, then the new video from World Net Daily of all people, showing Andy Breitbart drinking before the rant (and breaking, in cartoon fashion, his wine glass).

Full Speech: Andrew Breitbart at CPAC 2012

Posted on the Right Scoop, February 10, 2012-

Andrew Breitbart gave a great speech today, emphasizing his unrelenting fight with the progressive left and their “bulls**t” Alinsky tactics. He even says he has tapes of Obama from when he was in college that will expose how he and his radical buddies plotted while the rest of us slept. Can’t wait to see those videos.

Toward the end of his speech, he made a comment that I think is worth quoting:

I don’t care who our candidate is and I haven’t since the beginning of this. I haven’t! Ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate! …

Did James O'Keefe think no one would notice this?

Remember James O'Keefe's NPR scam? The one where he had some fake "Muslim extremists" take an NPR executive to lunch? To make his "Islamo-fascists" seem more credible, he created a phony website for them; MEAC of America. (Don't worry- we've archived the site in case he suddenly decides to take it down) All right so far- except that on the About page MEAC claims to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The problem is, they aren't. Oops.

Perhaps James O'Keefe doesn't think falsely claiming 501(c)(3) status constitutes fraud if it's a non-existent organization cooked up only to trick a legitimate non-profit organization. Perhaps the right court will see this as a grey area...

Trouble For O'Keefe

James O'Keffe's latest prank is yet another violation of his probation and has attracted the attention of Anonymous, who posted the following on Pastebin.Com:

James O'Keefe was at #occupywallstreet on Monday (10 October, 2011), and was very likely there to make trouble for #occupiers.

He even dressed up for us, perhaps in an attempt to blend in with NY elites?

Surely he knew he was there in violation of his probation. We ask that you call his probation officer NOW. Don't rest on this. O'Keefe has been behind other operations in an attempt to fabricate stories on political opponents. source: http://bit.ly/nzAOsw

Here's the contact info for his Probation Officer:

The “Vindication” of Andrew Breitbart

-Blogged by John Wellington Ennis on Public Interest Pictures

June 11, 2011- Jon Stewart called it “the weirdest f*cking story I’ve seen in my life.” It was the live broadcast of Rep. Anthony Weiner’s confessional press conference, and yet here was Andrew Breitbart, taking a victory lap around the mainstream press for not being wrong about a story for once. (At the same time, Breitbart not being wrong on a story almost deserves live breaking coverage.)

Advice To Weiner: Resign, Run Again

-by Keith Olbermann

June 11, 2011- There is no rush to judgment like a political rush to judgment.

The airwaves, the talk shows, all of the homes of political puffery have been filled to the brim, for more than a week, with absolute certainty about what Anthony Weiner should do – no, must do.

Republicans like Eric Cantor, whose response to previous such scandals on his side of the aisle has been to say he was praying for the malefactor’s family and hoped we would let “the people decide,” isn’t praying, and isn’t letting anybody decide – he’s saying Weiner should quit.

Why Breitbart is STILL TOAST. (New court doc analysis by Symbolman)

June 4, 2011- Posted on behalf of Symbolman:

Takebackthemedia.com dissects the latest Breitbart filings in Sherrod’s case against Breitbart for Defamation. His lawyers respond to Sherrod’s lawyers re: Change of Venue, plus Defendants are all SLAPP-HAPPY, which is looking like it’s designed to extend legal wrangling, and put off the dreaded Discovery.

Bringing Breitbart (And Thomas) To Justice (MOAR)

-Originally blogged by Stranded Wind on the Daily Kos

June 2, 2011- As the situation becomes more clear the need for accountability becomes equally clear.

Congressman Anthony Weiner was stalked, set up, smeared, and this was coordinated to protect Clarence Thomas from scrutiny.

This is another ACORN, another Shirley Sherrod, another NPR ‘sting’. They pick a target, they lie and deceive until they have something a credulous corporate media will swallow, and then another career is ruined or another community resource is destroyed.

Daily Kos: Brietbart to use SEX SMEAR on Rep. Anthony Weiner. UPDATE: BUSTED! Brietbart FAKED IT! EPIC FAIL

-Posted by MinistryOfTruth on Daily Kos

May 28, 2011- On BigGovernment.com, known serial liar and corporate hack Andrew Breitbart and friends have cooked up another Shirley Sherrod style attack on a Democrat, this time NY House Rep Anthony Weiner.

Hacked or hung?
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY 9″) finds himself in a late night online pickle.

Top 11 Ways The BEAST is better than James O’Keefe

Originally posted on the Buffalo Beast, March 9, 2011-

Because the MSM cannot figure it out

So, James O’Keefe got some NPR people to say that liberals are smarter than conservatives and that Tea Partiers are sometimes racists. Big scoop. Those are just facts, known-knowns, and the undercover sting revealed very little regarding what NPR execs know about right-wing lunatics.

Comparisons between O’Keefe and Murphy have abounded of late, but we’re here to clear up why our pranks are so much better than his and why that kid sucks:

1.We don’t edit our documentation out of context in order to give the impression that the subject said the opposite of what was intended.

2.When we fail, we’re at least honest about it.
