Conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart speaks at a news conference prior to U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) in New York, June 6, 2011.
Not around to share in the humiliation, unfortunately.
In this three-week-old article about problems within the Breitbart empire in the wake of its founder's death, the site's editors tried to justify their continuing existence:
Marlow agreed that Breitbart was unparalleled in his ability to promote a story, but said they were proud of the work they've done since his death. Pollak pointed to instances where they've helped shape conservative narratives over the course of the year. They said their site was among to first to sound the alarm bell on what they consider to be skewed presidential polls, and took pride in introducing new arguments into the "Benghazi coverup."
So other than playing second fiddle to Fox on Benghazi, their big accomplishment was to rip off this guy, only to have it hilariously backfire on election night.
