Skip to comments.Politico, Daily Kos Upset ´Fox News-Breitbart Crowd´ Gaining Influence
Posted on 12/12/2012 5:06:29 PM PST by Nachum
Add Politico and The Daily Kos to organizations conceding that Breitbart News is reporting stories they refuse to cover.
In an article describing the violent pro-union demonstrations in Michigan on Tuesday, in which protesters rallied against Michigan's historic right-to-work legislation, Politico promptly finished the piece with two paragraphs that served to dismiss everything that was written leading up to that point, quoting a poster on the liberal website The Daily Kos lamenting about the "Fox News-Breitbart" crowd.
"But some on the left are saying the reports are overly exaggerated," Politico writes at the end of the article.
Politico then quotes a Daily Kos poster who opines that "the Fox News-Breitbart crowd is trying to make it look like Tuesdays protests in Michigan were wildly violent" and that "reports of violence from police and non-Fox-Breitbart reporters are minimal to non-existent.

I don’t consider it conservative
Fox is fair and balanced. No news network is conservative. All except fox are liberal.
“Overly exaggerated”? There is video. Post a link and let the reader decide.
Oh, wait a minute. Politico wouldn’t do that.
This can’t be true. According to a liberal poll, Fox News viewers have an average IQ of 80, so for Fox News and Breitbart to be “gaining influence” there can’t be too many people involved.
After all, all liberals have superior intellects (just ask them!) and if dumber people want to watch Fox News or read Breitbart, why shoulf they care!? They’ll just have to intensify their lies to suck the rest of us in.
They’re a few years late to this conclusion.
Fox doesn’t claim to be conservative.
Not just exaggerated, but overly exaggerated.
Talk about overly excessive, verbose and redundant wordiness.
Frankly, who cares? Just keep reporting what you want, and let the Breitbart folks report what they want, and lets the dust settle where it falls. We don’t need to worry about who is “influencing” who.
It’s the end of the world! Politico finds the Marxist left doesn’t have absolute control over the news!
Right Michigan has the best video I've seen.
Propaganda can thwart the effort for a while but eventually people will gravitate towards truthful sources of info and common sense and away from absurd dissembling misinformation. Too bad for you, Politico.
Tried to get on rightmichigan.com and the site was down.
....but I wish they were.
It’s not the News Reports, it’s who Reports (or doesn’t Report) the News.
I feel like Roddy Piper in the Movie “They Live”. It seems like Conservatives are the only ones wearing the Sunglasses.
I’ll have to find out where the folks at Politico & DK hang out, so I can punch a few in the mouth. Then wait for them to exaggerate the details.
Can you believe acts of Union thug violence, are under-reported by the Union cops?
The ‘Daily Kos’ is completely irrelevant to patriotic, freedom loving Americans.

LOL! Very appropriate! ....I watch that movie everytime I find it on late night TV.
I think it’s time for a new Tagline.
