Adam Shriver: Blogger v. Blogger
Progressive activist and blogger Adam Shriver finally got an opportunity to debate conservative activist and blogger Andrew Breitbart this weekend when the latter showed up in St. Louis for a move-on-up.org conference.

Shriver, a doctoral student at Washington University, has been trying to debate Breitbart for weeks about his coverage of the Kenneth Gladney "beating" and the doctored videos of two University of Missouri professors that Breitbart aired on his website.

Breitbart was exiting a side door at this weekend's conference when Shriver caught up with him, cameras rolling. The following clip is a bit hard to follow, though Shriver has a detailed account of the talking points on his blog St. Louis Activist Hub.

What is easy to discern, however, comes early on when Breitbart tells the yapping Dana Loesch (who serves as the editor of his Big Journalism blog) to kindly shut the 'eff up.

Enjoy!

Shriver pulled a similar stunt last year, confronting Loesch in the lioness' den.

Andrew Breitbart did NOT tell Dana Loesch to "Butt Out" It's all about Adam Shriver. Shriver thinks he's an expert because he was tweeting at a  trial? Really? Shriver was not "in crowd" at NAACP speech on Gladney "Uncle Tom" speech. He had backstage VIP seat!  Adam is all about Adam. Enjoy Garrison. Adam is an expert on all local issues, just ask him. ;)  LOL!

Yeah, Adam should quit caring about stuff, who does he think he is trying to work for a more fair democracy? Some nerve! Uppity activists studying facts and working for the common good! Que pretensioso!

Don Giljum did say that violence was a possibly appropriate tactic in his unedited statement. But I don't see why his statement is such a big deal that a man should lose his job.

And the videos should never have been edited or sent around.

Dana is a paranoid, lying, vindictive idiot. That's all you need to know.

I don't know anyone who is in people's faces more than Dana Loesch, and I think it's more like "they lie" and opposed to "lied".  As in, it's something that is constant and continual, as opposed to something that has passed.

breitbart and adam are both tools who serve the same master even if they don't know it.

"Never wrestle with a pig. You just get dirty, and the pig enjoys it." There is no point, and I mean no point at all, in getting into an in-person point-by-point disputation with Breitbart or Loesch. They will never concede that you are right; their followers will never concede that you are right; nobody else is there to hear it, nor does anyone else care.

It's worth posting a point-by-point refutation of their claims somewhere, so you can refer to it. Every other refutation needs to be kept simple and repeated word-for-word until it goes memetic. In general, you can refute almost anything Breitbart says, or Loesch parrots, in two words: "they lied." You don't have to say any more than that. it's simple enough that people don't feel like you're trying to fast-talk them, it's easy to understand, it's provable, and it's memorable enough that people who hear it and want to do so can pass it along accurately.

Keep It Short and Simple.

And yet Dana, Breitbart's yapping lapdog, never shuts up for long.  Near the end of the video after Breitbart and Loesch admit to having seen all 31 hours of the University tapes, Dana goes off again asking if Shriver has seen the "14 hours" of tape.  "Have you....have you seen it...have you...have you..."   As I commented on Adam's Facebook page, it makes me wonder if one has to get a series of rabies shots after an encounter with Loesch.

Interestingly, Shriver refuses to answer but continues to comment on the video. Both you and the RFT missed the point on this one.
