Live Blog: Breitbart hijacks a Weiner PresserPosted: June 6, 2011
There’s basically a media circus unfolding on TV right now. Congressman Weiner was supposed to hold an event this afternoon and Big Media Blowhard Andrew Breitbart showed up at the podium to defend himself against charges of hacking Weiner’s twitter stream.
It looks like Weiner is waiting in the wings. Breitbart has just left the podium. Many news outlets are now covering it live but not broadcasting the sound.
What a zoo!!!

Shorter Breitbart: If 5% of what you say is kind of sort of like the truth, then no one can call you a liar again.
