Damn Liberal Media!

ABC News has apparently invited dishonest right-wing smear merchant Andrew Breitbart to be a part of its election-night coverage.

Media Matters has confirmed that noted propagandist Andrew Breitbart will provide analysis for ABC News during their election night coverage.
After Breitbart's website reported that Breitbart would "be bringing analysis live from Arizona" for ABC, Media Matters confirmed his participation in a town hall meeting anchored by ABC's David Muir and Facebook's Randi Zuckerberg that will be featured in the network's coverage.
Asked about Breitbart's history of unethical behavior and misinformation, ABC News' David Ford told Media Matters: "He will be one of many voices on our air, including Bill Adair of Politifact. If Andrew Breitbart says something that is incorrect, we have other voices to call him on it."

So you know going in that he's going to lie. You know that so you have a guy from Politifact there to provide balance, I guess? Balancing Breitbart's shameless lying with some truth-telling? Here's an idea, why not just don't invite a lying, sleazy partisan hack to be a part of your news coverage? 
why do you have to say "with us from Arizona is a lying hefty-bag full of dog poop, and here in studio is a guy that will tell you when the shitbag is lying."  Just don't have the liar, save yourselves the trouble!
Haven't you figured out by now that there is no amount of bending over frontwards, backwards, or sideways that is going to make these people be your friends? You could have Karl Rove debating George W. Bush and the right wing blahblahblah squad would still whine constantly about your imaginary left-wing bias. Don't play their game, you can't ever win.
