BigGovernment, BigJournalism, now Andrew Breitbart is really thinking big.
Speaking to thousands of receptive tea party activists at the 9/12 rally on Washington’s National Mall, Breitbart complained about mainstream media coverage of a July NAACP resolution that said some elements of the tea party are racist.The provocateur said the TV network he creates would explore, for instance, whether CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric is a racist because of where she vacations.
“What would you do, Katie, if you woke up and you saw on your competitor’s channel: ‘Let’s talk about whether or not Katie Couric is racist’? I think she’d be pissed off.” he told the crowd. “We are a citizen journalism army, and we are going to take this country back.”
After the speech, Breitbart told Politico, “I winged that one. It’s a goal. Every boy can have a dream. I can’t middle relieve for the Dodgers anymore, so I want to have my own news network.”
“I’ll have a network, I’m sure I will,” he added, “I’ll figure that out. I’m not that worried about it.”
