Last fall, Breitbart made his first big splash. He posted an undercover video in which a pair of conservative activists posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend asked employees of the community group ACORN for help with a brothel that would house underage Salvadorans. ACORN was embarrassed when some of its workers seemed too helpful; Congress responded by defunding the organization.
1) They were not dressed as a prostitute and pimp. The guy wore a dress shirt and khaki pants, and said he was hoping to run for Congress.
Several ACORN offices threw them right out the door.
But none of this matters because Congress defunded ACORN in response to the Brietbart / FOX News / Drudge Report smear.

Lies got us into the wars and lies are keeping us there.

Some folks wonder why the far-left and far-right can be brought together on some issues but not on other issues.
Those "folks" are studying that phenomenon quite intently because the success or failure of much propaganda depends on understanding it.
