Hilarious flashback: Media Matters tool told Breitbart to hold a ‘Mardi Gras-style funeral’ for ‘Pigford crusade’

Smart take, Boehlert!

As Twitchy noted earlier, a New York Times investigative report on the Pigford settlements scandal has vindicated Andrew Breitbart. Breitbart’s mission to expose the massive fraud and injustice earned him contempt and criticism from the Left. He was repeatedly smeared as a liar and racist.

Leading the pack was Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert. In March of 2011, he shared an oh-so-brilliant idea with Breitbart: “He should have a mock, Mardi Gras-style funeral this wk for his Pigford crusade. Cuz it’s dead/buried.”

Take a moment and enjoy that one, then read more from the Senior Fellow of Crow-Gobbling.

But Eric totally knows what he’s talking about! A couple of weeks before Anthony Weiner resigned from Congress, he predicted Weinergate and Pigford were two peas in a pod.

Fellow Media Matters tool Oliver Willis sneeringly called the Pigford scandal a “non-troversy.”

And as Breitbart.com’s John Nolte notes, Media Matters was all over this one.

Nolte writes:

Using their own search engine, you can find at least twenty stories written by the Soros-funded, 501 (c)(3) welfare queens at Media Matters for America that were explicitly meant to discredit Andrew Breitbart’s investigative efforts into what became known as Pigford — a four-alarm scandal involving the U.S. Department of Agriculture

So, MMFA flunkies, how do y’all like your crow? We’re givers, so we’ll gladly serve it to you while you’re in this position:

Any comment, Eric? Or is your mouth full?

Patience. He’s a little busy crying into his tear-stained diary right now.
