Matt Boyle has a post at Breitbart that is largely consistent with my analysis in my earlier post today on this story. My earlier post contains details about DNC-connected dirty tricks operative Aaron Black, including his boasts about helping to get a Trump rally shut down after violence broke out.
In his post today, Boyle admits that Black, the Democrat operative, would often “tell Breitbart News about planned events he had coming up and different newsworthy actions he planned to take.” Boyle describes the dark hat Democrat trickster as a “solid source with actionable intelligence on newsworthy events about many different goings-on in the political arena” — and says he is “proud” that Black trusted Breitbart enough to “work with us on a number of stories” including stories “exposing” Rubio:
The idea that Black “coordinated” Breitbart News coverage is a blatant misrepresentation of what happened. Black did on occasion—as he and any other effective organizer in politics does with everyone in media—tell Breitbart News about planned events he had coming up and different newsworthy actions he planned to take. Sometimes, when editors and reporters here deemed them newsworthy, Breitbart News would cover them. Other times not. For the reporters and editors at Politico who don’t understand, that is what is called journalism.
If anything, Black is a solid source with actionable intelligence on newsworthy events about many different goings-on in the political arena—and we’re proud he has trusted us enough to work with us on a number of stories, including his work as Robot Rubio exposing the globalist Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Rubio, of course, would go on after this to lose the Republican presidential primaries badly to current GOP nominee Donald J. Trump as voters rejected his vision for the country by the millions.
If Boyle is to be believed here (and I have no reason to disbelieve him), this post firmly rebuts any claim that Breitbart “coordinated” with Black in the sense of telling him where to go or what to do.
But that was never the allegation. It’s certainly not my complaint.
The essence of my complaint is that Breitbart.com worked with a dark hat Democrat operative to sympathetically publicize that operative’s attacks on Trump rivals like Marco Rubio during the primary. And Boyle admits that in this post. He’s not hiding it. He’s proud of it.
In “defending” themselves, Breitbart has given away the game.
