Media Matters: Why won’t Breitbart report on ADL’s sweeping condemnation of Beck?
November 12, 2010- Welcome to the right-wing echo chamber, where rarely is heard a discouraging word (about conservatives).
Or in this case, where the Anti-Defamation League’s complete and unequivocal denunciation of Glenn Beck and his George Soros smear campaign does not exist.
Specifically, the condemnation is off limits at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism site, which is odd because in a bout of very bad timing, on the very day the ADL lashed out at Beck, the site posted a long defense of Beck and his use of blatant anti-Semitic stereotypes in his attack on Soros.
Breitbart’s site went on and on about how claims of anti-Semitism regarding Beck's rhetoric were phony, and not to be taken seriously, and were only being pushed by Media Matters. But then on the very same day the ADL stepped front-and-center and denounced Beck’s crusade as “horrific” and “offensive.”
So what did Breitbart’s site do in response? You guessed it. It played dumb on an epic scale. In Breitbart's World, the ADL and its take-down of Beck does not exist.
Behold “conservative journalism.”
