RAW Story: Chris Hayes: Breitbart ‘a serial manipulator of the media’
-By Eric W. Dolan
May 31, 2011- On MSNBC’s The Last Word Tuesday night, Chris Hayes questioned why conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart was allowed to “spout off” on CNN about Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). Breitbart implied Tuesday that Weiner had been engaged in inappropriate relationships with multiple young women.
“Am I wrong in my level of outrage that this person who has been so discredited, so many times, is such a serial manipulator of the media is allowed to just come on and spout off like this?” he asked.
“Andrew Breitbart is not known to be the most self-reflective, remorseful person,” his guest, Huffington Post’s Alex Wagner added. “I think in that same interview he talked about the Shirley Sherrod story being a liberal attack on him.”
Despite her doubts about Breitbart’s credibility, Wagner noted that Weiner was adding full to the fire by refusing to discuss the event in more detail with the media.
