Does Breitbart Editor Loesch Not Read Her Own Website?

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Check out this painfully poorly worded passage from Dana Loesch, who edits Andrew Breitbart's site, Big Journalism. The context is her breathless report about a progressive conference call that took place in response to the right wing's latest undercover sting campaign targeting Planned Parenthood:

The majority of the call was spent discussing ways to discredit Rose because of her funding. They surmise that some group which donates to her pro-life magazine is a group donated to by a group given money by the Koch Brothers. So says people who just cashed a $1 million-dollar check from George Soros.

For the sake of argument, assuming that the Koch Brothers (I had to Google them to see exactly what it is they do and how their name isn't pronounced like the sobriquet for phallus but rather, the soda) were as ubiquitous in activism as George Soros is publicly, the greatest irony has befallen our senior fellows who hate big business and personal wealth so much: they are willing pawns in a battle between frillionaires.

So according to Loesch, she had to Google "the Koch Brothers" within the last 24 hours to see "what it is they do." That is a rather astounding admission from someone who's an editor of a political website.

It's even more astonishing considering Loesch runs a site that writes about the Koch brothers all the time. Like, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Behold "conservative journalism."
