This is a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes of how the far right "media" functions, or dysfunctions might be more apt. Ken Crow the founder of TeaPartyCommunity.com was interviewed by Lee Stranahan about an arrangement for his group to pay Breitbart to promote and cover his group's event.
Lee Stranahan:So you called assuming they would cover it like a news thing. What were you told?Listen to the interview here: link
Ken Crow:Well I was told ah that Britebart didn't have the financial wherewithal to send a crew down there because they wouldn't have the advertising base and the revenue to warrant that, and we would uh, or the the organizers would have to pay...
....So the entire package was going to run, to have Britebart cover this, was was going to run around $11,000 as I recall.
Lee Stranahan: And then what happened? Was money subsequently paid to them?
Ken Crow: Their final fee I believe was paid like 48 hours before the event. The organizers were able to raise I believe the original $7,000 and uh purchased a couple of plane tickets I believe for them and out them up in Martindale.
Crow isBreitbart's unsatisfied customer and Stranahan was a reporter for Britebart until recently when he was fired.
Breitbart also claims to have a Texas bureau but the crew to cover this event was flown to Texas from the East Coast.
It looks like Stranahan is using the interview techniques he learned at Breitbart against his sleazy former employer, to expose Breitbart charging payola for coverage. Fortunately for Breitbart only real journalists have to worry about journalistic ethics, so that leaves them out.
