The Breitbart-Ratigan-Shuster-Bashir affair … to sell books

By Chris Ariens Comment

Try to keep up.

Andrew Breitbart went on Dylan Ratigan’s MSNBC show Tuesday. Critics say Ratigan was soft. Breitbart returned to MSNBC Wednesday to tape an interview with Martin Bashir, who wasn’t soft at all. In between there was an interview with former MSNBC anchor David Shuster on the radio show of former MSNBC host Bill Press. That wasn’t so soft either. In fact, Shuster mostly called out Ratigan for his interview. Shuster and Breitbart have a history. It all came to a head last night as Breitbart went on very comfortable turf on FNC’s “Red Eye.” Comfortable enough that he recalled the whole MSNBC episode with some insider details.

But what host Greg Gutfeld really wanted to know was why James O’Keefe did this.

Breitbart, who is promoting “Righteous, Indignation” has also been on with CNN’s Eliot Spitzer and HLN’s Joy Behar this week.
