Breaking: Is Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com Rotten To The Core?




Posted at 22:16 by D. Aristophanes

**********NEWS ALERT: MUST CREDIT SADLY, NO! **********

**********EXCLUSIVE: NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN VIDEO **********

**********WHAT DID HE KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT? **********

**********BREITBART CRIME SYNDICATE SHOCKER **********

The arrest of BigGovernment.com’s James O’Keefe and three others for an alleged plot to interfere with Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu’s telephone system has raised new questions about the extent of the rot at the heart of Andrew Breitbart’s online media empire.

Breitbart, a former reporter for the Drudge Report, operates popular conservative media sites BigGovernment.com and BigHollywood.com. But with a string of run-ins with the law over the past year, some observers say Breitbart may want to look into a new property: BigLegalProblems.com.

The 25-year-old O’Keefe, who collected a salary from “blog producer” Breitbart’s for-profit media company, the modestly named Breitbart, was arrested by the FBI Monday along with Joseph Basel, Stan Dai and Robert Flanagan, all 24, at Landrieu’s New Orleans office.

For now, Breitbart claims no knowledge of the alleged scheme conducted by O’Keefe and the others. Furthermore, he
demands that media and the public “[w]ait until the facts are in.”

But Breitbart could go a long way towards helping us understand “the facts” himself. He could make public all communications between himself and O’Keefe in recent weeks. That he has not done so only raises suspicions that he may have something to hide. We also suggest that he release all financial statements pertaining to his company’s payments to O’Keefe.

But most damning of all for Breitbart is the following, never-before-seen video footage of Breitbart and O’Keefe actively conspiring to commit crimes – which we obtained from courageous 11-year-old investigative reporter who frankly has the kind of courage and ingenuity that is sorely lacking in today’s Mainstream Media:

UPDATE: The partisan media is already alleging that this video was ‘doctored’. We stand by our reporting and furthermore, we predict much egg on your J-school grad faces.

    The thing about catching these sorts of crimes on video is how mundane it all turns out to be, like any other plain boring conversation between two guys with very large and perfectly spherical heads.

    So it’s OK to accuse ACORN of committing crimes because someof their employees humored an obviously fake “pimp,” but it’s “slander” to accuse O’Keefe of committing crimes because someone said “wiretap” instead of “criminal trespass.” Got it.

    Was waiting for Shuster to say, “Will you just shut the fuck up already!” but I guess that was too much to hope for.

    Irresponsible not to speculate! Irresponsible, I tell you!

    Honestly, while it’s mildly amusing to see O’Keefe condemned to house arrest with his parents, when I got sent to my room without supper at 25 years old my parents at least had the wisdom to confiscate all my porn and video games.

    We are going to need new orders of magnitude to describe the wimpiness of the wrist slap this guy and his cohorts are going to receive. My money is on a stern reprimand and 5 hours of community service. But I may be raising my expectations too high.

  31. Felonious Monk said,

    You know, if you look at pictures of Sir Pimpenstein, he really looks about 16-17. So the fact that we have conclusive proof of Blartblart inviting a naked looks-like-a-14-year-old boy into his office is proof of his vast collection of child porn. It would be irresponsible, etc.

    Holy cats, Breitblart is a moran. Let’s make it simple for Andrew. O’Keefe case: charges filed. Acorn case: no charges filed. In fact, no charges remotely possible because it would be such an obvious case of entrapment.

    Clear, Blartblart? Good. Now go yell at a protest or something.

    Well, duh, that’s because AG Stokeley Carmichael Holder and President H. Rap Brown Obama are refusing to press charges against ACORN because THEY’RE IN ON THE CONSPIRACY!!!! Instead, they’re slandering several upstanding young white men (and one apparently confused Asian) by accusing them of crimes theY didn’t commit!!!

    Jeez, do I really have to explain it to you? Really? OK, I’ll just START TALKING REALLY LOUD AND REPEATING MYSELF AND TALKING OVER YOU UNTIL YOU FINALLY GET SICK AND TIRED AND ADMIT THAT I’M RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!ACORN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If only all this deliciousness weren’t going to end with either greatly reduced charges (and a teensy wrist slap) or dropped ones. There is no way the White House will let the Justice Department pursue this once the teabaggers start howling about how the government is just punishing these brave boys for uncovering the unspeakable evil that is ACORN.

    O’Keefers will then be assured of even greater wingnut welfare, which will emboldenenen other young “activist filmakers.”

    Wash, rinse, repeat.

    How is that O’Keefe doesn’t apply his expert journalistic talent to investigating Blackwater? Now that would be a real service to the country. O’Keefe bears a certain likeness to a combination of Lee Harvey Oswald and Timothy McVie.

    i’m sure the good folks on this website have already seen my wife “making” glenn beck cry, an event which i witnessed and which was actually more mind-boggling in person than is possible to believe. these conservative activists are post-modern actors who have no interest in truth or reference to some shared reality, because the whole thing is relative to them. if reality does not get your political purpose done then ignore it, or better yet yell at it until it shuts up.

    it’s the lyrics of nine inch nails “Only” as a lifestyle choice:

    I’m becoming less defined as days go by
    Fading away
    And well you might say
    I’m losing focus
    Kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself

    Sometimes I think I can see right through myself [x2]
    Sometimes I can see right through myself

    Less concerned about fitting into the world
    Your world that is
    Cause it doesn’t really matter anymore
    (no it doesn’t really matter anymore)
    No it doesn’t really matter anymore
    None of this really matters anymore

    Yes I am alone but then again I always was
    As far back as I can tell
    I think maybe it’s because
    Because you were never really real to begin with
    I just made you up to hurt myself

    [x2]
    I just made you up to hurt myself, yeah
    And I just made you up to hurt myself

    And it worked.
    Yes it did!

    [Chorus:]
    There is no you
    There is only me
    There is no you
    There is only me
    There is no fucking you
    There is only me
    There is no fucking you
    There is only me

    Blartblartt: MSNBC said something wrong therefore there’s no way you can use any of the evidence from this case against me. Fruit of the Poison Vine, beaches. Any first year Law & Order student knows that. Which means that there’s no way you can prove anything about me being involved in a criminal conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism against the federal government. And not about them hookers neither.

    I think I even saw Gibson himself talking about how things turned out wildly different from Neuromancer and now it’s dated…but I don’t get that. Neuromancer is slightly surreal science fiction. It has Space Rastafarians. It envisions some strange VR method of hacking. It’s fantastic.

    Maybe there are a few moments that are genuinely dated, but the story held up just fine when I read it a couple years ago. It’s not wrong, it’s not right. It’s, well, fiction, set in a world that doesn’t exist.

    Breitblart’s office is much cleaner than I expected – & there’s a suspicious deficit of visible “Red Dawn” & “First Blood” posters too.

    HMMM.

    I’m just waiting for O’Queef & his band of Merry Spanksters to claim the “it was a social-experiment/performance-art” defense … or maybe the Twinkie defense (hell, they could do a lot worse: that one actually WORKED in the 70s).

    He looked coked up at first, and ended up looking like he’d cry.

    I’d've gone for “ripped to the tits on meth” – but yeah, that boy looked way way too, er, ENTHUSIASTIC to me … & the whole “MSNBC Lied To Get Me On Their Filthy Commie Network” thing sounds like one-fat-rail-too-many territory too. Jesus, Andy, everyone knows what a full-bore flaming attention-whore you are by now; all MSNBC needs to do is offer you air-time to make a total dipshit of yourself & you’re there, red ball on nose, trou dropped & feather-duster dutifully crammed up arse, gobbling like a turkey on command, no questions asked.

    I re-read Neuromancer at least once every year. On the whole, it’s not dated at all. Maybe some details like “three megabytes of hot RAM” seem dated because that’s not all that much these days, but it doesn’t detract from the story at all.
