Wow. Just when you think people can't stoop any lower, guess what they do? They stoop lower. I am not talking about those who saw the tape presented by Brietbart, and so may have justifiably felt that the Democrats who were called niggers made it all up. I am talking about Breitbart himself, who used the wrong tape to "prove" they lied, and after the truth comes out, still sticks with his story. While we can give Brietbart the benefit of the doubt at first (after all, the tape he used was "mislabeled"), now we can call him a douche bag and a liar to continue to stick with it, even after it has been shown that what he had on tape was not taken at the time the N-bomb was dropped about 15 times, but an hour later.A reconstruction of the events shows that the conservative challenges largely sprang from a mislabeled video that was shot later in the day.
Breitbart posted two columns on his Web site saying the claims were fabricated. Both led with a 48-second YouTube video showing Lewis, Carson, other Congressional Black Caucus members and staffers leaving the Capitol. Some of the group were videotaping the booing crowd.
Breitbart asked why the epithet was not captured by the black lawmakers' cameras, and why nobody reacted as if they had heard the slur. He also questioned whether the epithets could have been shouted by liberals planted in the crowd.
But the 48-second video was shot as the group was leaving the Capitol — at least one hour after Lewis, D-Ga., and Carson walked to the Capitol, which is when they said the slurs were used.
It's conclusive proof about something, though..... something known as yellow journalism.Questioned about using a video on his Web site from the wrong moment, Breitbart stood by his claim that the lawmakers were lying.
"I'm not saying the video was conclusive proof," he said.
