Isn’t this illegal? News Hounds, emphasis mine:
But poor Breitbart – the guy who threatened to blackmail President Obama, the guy who hoped to bring down the institutional left in three weeks (more than a year ago) – is just so unfairly persecuted. “There’s a lot of vetting going on because even when you get a story airtight, they still attack you.”
Nevertheless, we had the chance to see what a noble character Breitbart has. It’s only because of the awful injustices to be visited on himself that he took on the unpleasant task of going after Weiner. Now addressing the Congressman, Breitbart said, “You gotta trust me on this, you know, Congressman Weiner. I am not enjoying the salacious aspect of this – and I was at that press conference and he’s not gonna believe me but I felt like crap for this man. I felt like crap for this man …and I’m torn between my desire to forgive the man for whatever private sins he had but had I not shown these photos today, he would have continued down a campaign of smearing me. This was about vindication and when I sat there watching it, it was pathetic to watch that this is what this man has…” Breitbart never finished the sentence.
“I felt the same thing,” Hannity assured us. Of course, that didn’t stop him from spending almost the entire show on Weiner. Or distorting the truth. Hannity said, “When you see a broken person and you know the impact it’s having on his family, etc., but he still should have resigned. Every Republican resigned.”
Well, except David Vitter and Rudy Giuliani, to name a few. And last I checked Newt Gingrich was back in action. Same goes for Breitbart protégé James O’Keefe – you know, the one who pleaded guilty to a lesser charge after being arrested for trying to tamper with Sen. Mary Landrieu’s phones and then reportedly tried to seduce and humiliate CNN reporter Abbie Boudreau. Sherrod is suing Breitbart for damaging her reputation with his deceptively edited video falsely portraying her as a racist yet he's treated as a respectable, if not outstanding muckraker on Fox News. You have to wonder if there’s any limit to the lying and deceit Breitbart gets to get away with on Fox News.
Near the end of the segment, Breitbart was able to push aside his tenderhearted feelings for Weiner in favor of his noble feelings for the women he sexted. In fact, Breitbart’s feelings were so noble, he threatened Weiner with blackmail. “I know how politics works,” Breitbart said. “I know how the politics of personal destruction works. I know how the private detectives work. Don’t go after Meagan (presumably Meagan Broussard, the woman interviewed by Hannity). Don’t go after the other girls and I’m paying attention. And that’s all I can say.”
Adding…..Breitbart also appears to be holding another picture over Rep. Weiner’s head.
"I'm doing this to save his family" Breitbart says about his decision not to post a photo that the BigGovernment.com site describes as "extremely graphic, and leaves nothing to the imagination."
"I would like an apology from him... This was his political strategy -- to accuse me of hacking," Breitbart says.
"I'm trying to do the decent thing here and not release the photo."
I’m just sayin’……
