(Newser) – Andrew Breitbart thinks Glenn Beck backstabbed him during the Shirley Sherrod fiasco. In an interview with the Observer, the conservative blogger says that Beck joined him in editing the infamous video and castigating Sherrod on the radio—only to suddenly do an about-face, publish the unedited version online, and demand an apology. “Next thing I know, I'm under complete attack without the support of Glenn Beck, who I thought was somebody I could count on," Breitbart says. "He threw me under the bus."

Breitbart spent the rest of the interview talking about his new crusade against “Big Education,” aka, public schools and teachers unions. “I’d rather my kids get slapped by a Catholic nun and have guilt about masturbation than come out of school with this nihilistic, angry, leftist worldview they are clearly pushing,” he opines.
