Call on ABC News to drop Andrew Breitbart

Oct 31 2010

Andrew Breitbart is a liar and race-baiter with a long history of pushing false stories to achieve his political ends. He was most recently exposed as a fraud after promoting selectively-edited video in an attempt to paint the USDA's Shirley Sherrod as a racist, smear the NAACP, and accuse the Obama administration of reverse racism.

For some reason, ABC News invited Breitbart to participate in their Election Day programming. It's a slap in the face to Shirley Sherrod, to Black America, and to everyone who believes in the value of telling the truth. Please join us in calling on ABC to drop Breitbart from their Election Day programming, now.

UPDATE: ABC News rescinded its invitation for Andrew Breitbart to be part of its election night coverage. The move came after two days in which and CREDO Action members sign more than 125,000 petitions and make more than 2,000 calls to leadership at ABC and its parent company, Disney.

This campaign has concluded.
