Olbermann slams "the perpetual fraud machine that is Fox News and the scum that is this assassin Breitbart".

God, he hits all the right notes. This is a "perversion of journalism". Breitbart is "scum".

"Words crashed together never to inform, only to inflame."

"It is the manipulation of reality to make the racist seem benevolent and to convict the benevolent as racist."

"It's intentional redirection from reality and progress to a paranoid delusion and the fomenting of hatred of Americans by Americans. And nearly every last word of it is never, in any tangible sense, true."

That's the worst thing about all of this. It was intentional. There was a deliberate attempt to correct what the right saw as a wrong, and - to this end - they were prepared to edit a video so that it changed utterly the truth of what we were looking at.

And now their defenders are lining up to tell us that we should blame anyone but the perpetrators of this scandal.

They are shameless.
