Breitbart has lied repeatedly, and unapologetically, not just about Shirley Sherrod but also ACORN and a lot of other issues, as Media Matters notes below (and as Brad Feidman has been pointing out for quite a while).

But it’s not just Breitbart’s lying per se that makes him totally unfit to speak on the results of this election (or any other). Rather, it the fundamental purpose of those lies: i.e., to disenfranchise as many citizens as possible, so as to help the GOP take power despite the will of the majority.

So let’s tell ABC that there is no good reason, or excuse, for having such a character sit solemnly among their analysts on Election Night:

ABC Taps Andrew Breitbart For Election Night Analysis

Media Matters confirms that ABC News has recruited Andrew Breitbart, the conservative blogger whose out-of-context video footage of Shirley Sherrod got the Agriculture Department official ,to provide commentary for the network’s election-night newscast.

The news was first reported by Breitbart’s own website, BigJournalism, whose editor Dana Loesch is on tap to provide live analysis in the ABC News studio on Election Night. Breitbart is slated appear live from a town hall meeting anchored by ABC’s David Muir and Facebook consumer marketing head Randi Zuckerberg.

ABC News spokesman David Ford told Media Matters — which, in the wake of Sherrod’s firing, unveiled a video entitled “The End of Andrew Breitbart’s Credibility”, and which maintains detailed files on him — that Breitbart will not have license to lie during the broadcast. “He will be one of many voices on our air, including Bill Adair of Politifact,” Ford said. “If Andrew Breitbart says something that is incorrect, we have other voices to call him on it.”

  • I, for one, will send an email to ABC News, to voice my displeasure. Suggest that anyone else who finds this objectionable to do the same. Speak up!

  • Anybody know how to jam a stailete transmission for a night or so? I think it's time for a little-people run media censoring or maybe over-laying a signal that is not un-American in content to broadcast in place of this commie agenda. Write your letters about this now!!!!!!!!!
