Andrew Breitbart Raves: ACORN Pseudo-Scandal the "Abu Ghraib of Great Society"
Big Hollywood's Andrew Breitbart, mastermind of the ACORN "investigation" videos (for which he is being sued), took umbrage at the Village Voice's coverage of a report that cleared ACORN of any wrong-doing in the matter.
Roy Edroso managed to snag an interview with Breitbart. He says it was, "boiled down from what was pretty much a 45-minute harangue." The man who made hating Hollywood a career, was in fine form:
Throughout our interview, Breitbart railed against ACORN ("they don't help the poor, they keep them dependent on a completely corrupt system"), the "false standard" of mainstream media journalism that he finds unfairly applied to O'Keefe's reporting ("when Morley Safer does an investigation, do you see every minute, every second that they shot? They edit it for effect"), and the media's attempt to "whitewash" ACORN. He compared his reporters to Upton Sinclair, and called the ACORN scandal "the Abu Ghraib of the Great Society."
Breitbart promises more ACORN coverage, and that it will not be pretty: "The L.A. [ACORN] guy didn't help [Hannah and James]. Didn't kick them out, but he wasn't very helpful. That's the closest thing to an exculpatory video. There will be no more exculpatory video. The rest is just like the rest."
I may be mistaken, but that last bit seems like Andrew Breitbart promising less balanced reporting on ACORN's nefarious plots in the future. Which is about the funniest thing I've heard all day.
