Huffington Post

My most recent Huffington Post is about a group of activists fighting 
back against
the Glenn Becks, Andrew Breitbarts and the rest of the Fox News 
propaganda machine.
This new watchdog group, IndictBreitbart.org 
[http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=hfl6x9dab&et=1104077576713&s=101&e=001sJImuPzKlClyJkVrsSA-LNgswF7FH89YVVPPn3nN44McgthPYa43Sx26li4i4oTaMjVT8Oh7NCqd1YLs1Id2n1U6hYugclcrmbDUiJ6tP6PZ1A4G1rtvMO2wtYN7_vj_],
launched a campaign to encourage Baltimore's new State's Attorney to 
prosecute right
wing activists Andrew Breitbart

and James O'Keefe for violating a Maryland law, which prohibits 
surreptitious recordings
and disclosure of those recordings.

With progressives demoralized by November's election and Obama's retreat

on the Bush tax cuts, this group is going on the offense determined to 
stop the
conservative media's modus operandi of using lies, half truths, and 
video deception
to attack everyone from George Soros to ACORN to unions, to civic 
organizations
and their innocent members. It might also help discourage the mainstream 
media from
repeating their false accusations 
[http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=hfl6x9dab&et=1104077576713&s=101&e=001sJImuPzKlClrldd6gS3TMUk677N3zpiY5oEhzbvyd3PvhvrtQPV97yO-UgWKC9qcK2KuAOpA0e1fSkolWnESM1nwJQcvSsgLaxDN2xj2NBq81u05EajOECa74eFcMw3arTepchTR0Zh6_7mz_IW2HzPMCses-tcoprquQxMQjkCvgwWzlBik2LqkIG44yWae],
