Appearing on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, Breitbart.com’s Dana Loesch and BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith feuded over who had the real scoop on the controversial Obama hug video.
“I wish that BuzzFeed would have shown the actual full video footage,” Loesch said, noting that Breitbart.com had the full B-roll of the footage. “Because at the very end one of the things that Ben Smith does not get into at BuzzFeed — and I’m glad he was provoked into looking for this footage after Andrew’s speech at CPAC — what it doesn’t get into is how Barack Obama, when he finished his speech, he went over and he hugged Derrick Bell.”
It should be noted that PBS editor Andrew Golis claims their network has had the video on their site this whole time.
Loesch did NOT have the real scoop of the video, and likely neither Smith. PBS had it on the website since 2008.
