Keller Joins PBS Lefties in Getting Breitbart Wrong
Even Jon Keller, a savvy political commentator from Channel 4 in Boston who is generally pretty conservative, joins the attack on Andrew Breitbart on Emily Rooney's PBS show in Boston.
What was Andrew Breitbart's affirmative image of where the country should go, what government should stand for, or how the media should behave. There wasn't anything affirmative about it...
Breitbart's mission was to break the hold that liberalism has on journalism and create an equally powerful outlet for his conservative beliefs through new media. That sounds pretty positive to me, even if the war required him to throw some bombs. Example: Remember the great Pelosi health care is civil rights media march?
Some members of the Congressional Black Caucus charged that tea party protesters had called them the N-word near the Capitol in March 2010. Breitbart offered a reward of $100,000 to be donated to the United Negro College Fund if anyone produced video and audio evidence that the charge was true.
This accusation was totally false, despite having been reported as fact in the media, and Breitbart proved the point. That's positive.
