Biggovernment.com creator Andrew Breitbart
LA Times Media Columnist Jim Rainey of "Raineygate"
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his ACORN "Rent a Mob" supporters
. ACORN's role in helping elect
"Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa".
Breitbart's "biggovernment.com" expose on the dubious doings of ACORN, as documented by aspiring video-journalists Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe, hit locally last week with videos of ACORN LA's operations.
But from the "Old Gray Westside Hag on Spring Street", there is still no statement about the "journalistic malpractice"
that was Media Columnist Jim Rainey's "outcome-based, agenda journalism" hit piece
on Breitbart's ACORN expose, thus "Raineygate" continues.
Not only are there more tapes, it’s not just ACORN. And this message is to Attorney General Holder: I want you to know that we have more tapes, it’s not just ACORN, and we’re going to hold out until the next election cycle, or else if you want to do a clean investigation, we will give you the rest of what we have, we will comply with you, we will give you the documentation we have from countless ACORN whistleblowers who want to come forward but are fearful of this organization and the retribution that they fear that this is a dangerous organization. So if you get into an investigation, we will give you the tapes; if you don’t give us the tapes, we will revisit these tapes come election time.
This blogger has no doubt that Breitbart will cover the above topics during his three-hour stint on KFI, this evening. But hopefully Breitbart will dedicate some time to discussing ACORN's local connections to LA's various politicos.
For example, one can find so much to dwell on in this one paragraph, from former LA Times City Hall Beat Writer and Ethics Commissioner Bill Boyarsky, as posted at LA Observed
The Project Acorn event was at the headquarters of Local 721 of the Service Employees Union. It hadn�t started so I walked around the Virgil Avenue neighborhood, a few miles west of downtown. It�s a neighborhood of apartments, probably affordable for working families (if they double up) but they will be out of range if building ever resumes. At the union hall, I ran into Sen. Mark Ridley-Thomas, and interviewed him on the closed Martin Luther King Jr. hospital for a story I plan to do for LA Observed on his race with Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard Parks. Then I introduced both Mama Hill and a short video about her and about how she faced foreclosure.
Further, maybe Breitbart could take some calls from local activists who are well-versed in Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's links to ACORN and their role in getting him elected to CD 14 in 2003 and in 2005, to Mayor. Patterico's
Patrick Frey would be an logical person to have on-air to discuss the numerous past episodes of "outcome-based, agenda journalism" at the "Old Gray Westside Hag on Spring Street" and how they penned "hit pieces" as noted by the Boulevard Sentinel in 2003
, during their former incarnation as the "LA Antonia Times". Their goal was to merge newsroom and editorial resources
, into the objective of furthering the "political agenda" of Antonio Villaraigosa.
In closing, hope you tune in tonight, then look forward to the spin tomorrow from the likes of LA Observed and the LA Times, the old guard of the liberal "outcome-based, agenda journalism".
