Dear Mr. Breitbart,
We have spent the past several days trying to make clear to you your limited role as a participant in our digital town hall to be streamed on ABCNews.com and Facebook. The post on your blog last Friday created a widespread impression that you would be analyzing the election on ABC News. We made it as clear as possible as quickly as possible that you had been invited along with numerous others to participate in our digital town hall. Instead of clarifying your role, you posted a blog on Sunday evening in which you continued to claim a bigger role in our coverage. As we are still unable to agree on your role, we feel it best for you not to participate.
This was a bad decision from the get go, but Breitbart has no one to blame but himself:
But now, in an utterly predictable twist, the brawling has become internal, as it were, with Breitbart battling ABC reps over what exactly his role will be and what he claims it was supposed to be. (He’s published private emails to state his case.)
That’s right, ABC is now publicly feuding with one of its soon-to-be guests, with Breitbart claiming ABC execs lied about what their plans were for him on Election Night, and ABC responding that it’s Breitbart who’s confused about what the emails said and what his participation was supposed to be. So yes, the obvious question arises: If ABC doesn’t think Breitbart can read emails, why do they want him to comment on Tuesday night’s election results?
Of course Breitbart will blame everyone else for this. It will be the fault of the liberals, President Obama, MMFA and everything else he hates. It will have nothing to do with Breitbart being a lying sack of shit.
