Living in his own alternate reality

You may recall I previously observed that virtually everything Andrew Breitbart says appears to be bullshit. Yet this is someone who is promoted by Fox News as a credible figure.

He's just part of the never ending stream of figures who are paraded on the network that live in some imaginary alternate reality. It borders on insane.

Example: Media Matters notes that Breitbart believes that President Obama "turned his domestic army of union thugs on the American people" by telling this fictional army to show up at townhall meetings to physically assault protesters.

Of course, it's easy to become desensitized to the absurdity of someone who holds such a worldview being promoted as a credible figure when it is a common belief of the Republican base that President Obama is deliberately attempting to destroy the American economy in order to install a totalitarian socialist regime.
