ABC “News” jumps in the toilet with Faux News with the scumbag prade as part of their “election coverage”, adding Andrew Brietbart the Pimp behind the Pimp. and sleaze behind the Shirley Sherrod smear…
Andrew Breitbart has released what he says is an email contradicting ABC News’ assertion that the network never planned to include him in its televised Election Night coverage.
On Friday, Breitbart’s Big Journalism website reported that Breitbart would be “featured” on ABC’s “election night coverage.” According to Big Journalism, Breitbart would be “bringing analysis live from Arizona.”
Several hours later, ABC spokesman David Ford confirmed to Media Matters that Breitbart “will be one of many voices on our air.”
After receiving heavy criticism, ABC released a statement Saturday purporting to “explain what Mr. Breitbart’s role has always been as one of our guests at our digital town hall event” [emphasis added]. According to the ABC statement, “Breitbart will not be a part of the ABC News broadcast coverage” and will instead “engage with a live, studio audience that will be closely following the election results and participating in an online-only discussion and debate.”
But on Sunday night, Breitbart insisted that wasn’t the original deal. Breitbart wrote, “I can state with absolute certainty that the verbal pitch to me to participate was punctuated by the opportunity to appear as part of ABC News’ broadcast television for the night. I was also aware that the majority of my participation — seven long hours — would be online.”
Similarly, Breitbart told The Daily Caller that “they originally pitched to me that I was going to do a hybrid of both online and broadcast.”
