(Newser) – Conservative media entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart lashed out at Rachel Maddow yesterday, branding the MSNBC host intellectually dishonest and slamming her politics. Breitbart was particularly angry about Maddow's coverage of the man who created the ACORN pimp videos, James O’Keefe. Maddow and the left “falsely framed" O'Keefe on the phone caper last month that was an attempted expose of Sen. Mary Landrieu, and let the real culprits the ACORN sting off the hook, he says.

He also tells Politico that Maddow's criticism merely "weaponized" O'Keefe and his team's upcoming videos will be "much more devastating." Maddow, he adds, was "part of a propaganda campaign to attack the last president" and now "promotes Barack Obama as the greatest thing that ever walked the earth.”
