Breitbart Hits MSNBC Host Bashir: Media Matters Read My Book For You

An interview that was supposed to be about Andrew Breitbart's book, "Righteous Indignation," quickly broke down to accusations of the author's supposed racism.

MSNBC's Martin Bashir asked Breitbart to denounce several racist items, even one that had nothing to do with him. When Bashir accused Breitbart of being connected to racist writer Kevin Pezzi the interview hit the fan.

Breitbart finally had enough of the equivalent to badgering a witness on the stand and called Bashir out. "You didn't read my book, Media Matters read it for you," he told Bashir. Bashir laughed the accusation off, but the Pezzi story was prominently featured at Media Matters' website.

"Every single point that you offered is straight out of George Soros' funded and John Podesta's led Media Matters. You are playing the role of being duped [by] John Podesta and Eric Boehlert and Media Matters. Every time I appear on MSNBC, or a lot of times, there is Eric Boehlert from Media Matters to be right there. Those are talking points straight out of Media Matters," Breitbart told Bashir.

"You have agenda-driven journalism, I support it, I support it. I support MSNBC," Breitbart added.
