    Disgraceful: New York Times editorial board dares not speak the name of the con artist "Andrew Breitbart"

    The New York Times today excoriated USDA Secretary Tom Wilsack and the Obama administration for acting on the basis of a transcript of a slanderous video supplied to Fox News by serial con man Andrew Breitbart, but never once mention that con artist's name.

    http://www.nytimes.com/...

    Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that the Times fell for the same con artist's slanderous videos framing ACORN for non-existent crimes, which ultimately resulted in ACORN being unjustifiably defunded and destroyed, cutting off millions of poor people across the country from much needed assistance of all kinds. Unfortunately, it took more than 48 hours for ACORN to be exonerated; it has since been shown that only James O'Keefe, Andrew Breitbart's partner in fraud, committed any crimes, by illegally recording ACORN staffers in "two-party" states.

    But then, if the Times were to mention Andrew Breitbart's name, the Times might finally have to apologize for its role in ACORN's unjust destruction, when it uncritically parroted Breitbart and O'Keefe's unfounded claims instead of investigating whether or not there was any substance to them. Plank, meet eye.

    But we can't have the Times apologizing for its own egregious errors, now, can we?
