That headline might not sound like news, but the war between Media Matters and Andrew Breitbart has new developments every week. The liberal news watchdog group has been demanding retractions from anyone who reported that James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles wore outlandish outfits inside of ACORN offices. They dressed more demurely during the sting than in b-roll and publicity shots which, Giles told me, were meant to illustrate how the government was whoring out the American people. After Giles introduced Breitbart (“my boss”), the founder of Big Government, he aimed and fired at the people who’d been trying to knock down his story with that argument.

“I have to apologize to the nation because the pimp in the pimp and prostitute video apparently wasn’t dressed like a flamboyant pimp,” said Breitbart, his voice dripping with sarcasm. “I’m so sorry to this nation. I don’t know what to say.” He pivoted to an attack on the people criticizing his reporters. “Bring it on! Mr. Podesta, we’re watching you! Mr. Podesta we are so sick of your Alinsky tactics and politics of personal destruction.”
