Andrew Breitbart and anyone else associated with this need to suffer the full punishment of the law.


Two Missouri labor professors have been vindicated after a right-wing smear campaign almost cost them their jobs. Last month, the website—run by right-wing blogger Andrew Breitbart—posted footage of a labor relations class taught by University of Missouri professors Judy Ancel and Don Giljum. In the video, the professors appeared to make a number of statements backing the use of violence in the struggle for labor rights. But it turned out the video was edited in a way to distort their words—similar to recent video campaigns against ACORN, Planned Parenthood, NPR and former FDA official, Shirley Sherrod. “I was just appalled. I knew it was me speaking, but it wasn’t saying what I had said in class,” said Judy Ancel, Director of the Institute for Labor Studies, University of Missouri-Kansas City.

The man has a lawsuit against him by Shirley Sherrod. He should be enjoined from publishing anything anymore until that lawsuit and whatever action Judy Ancel may file are resolved. I agree that the students who participated in that class may well have cause for civil suits against the student who copied, falsified, and disseminated the video. I hope Breitbart “excites” himself into contempt of court.
