The Caper Trail

I can't believe we're even having this conversation.

The Washington Post: Alaska TV Station Says Attack Based on Audio Clip Posted by Breitbart is Bogus/10.31.10

Of course it's complete bullshit -- you know how you can tell?

Because Andrew Breitbart says it's a huge scandal.

Jesus, what the fuck does this guy have to do for the media to stop giving him even a shred of credibility -- selectively cut together a clip of presidential speeches that when played backward makes it seem as if Obama is saying, "I buried Ron Paul"? At this point Breitbart's nothing more than the Dickie Goodman of manufactured political scandals.

Oh, and then there's this:

The Washington Post: Breitbart Now Accusing ABC News of Lying/11.1.10

Media Matters: ABC News and Breitbart Now at War/11.1.10

Good going, ABC. Bet you people are thrilled you grabbed onto that third rail with both hands.

Dickie Goodman = quite possibly the greatest reference ever

First CNN with Rick, then Juan with FOX News, now Andrew with ABC News. It's like grabbing the third rail has become a new trend.
