MEDIA MALPRACTICE – WaPo Scrubs Positive “Hating Breitbart” Reviews From Website

They couldn’t stop Andrew Breitbart’s message from being heard before and they won’t stop it now… but that doesn’t mean they won’t try.

And try they are. The Washington Post recently published a “review” of the film Hating Breitbart. Review is in quotations because it was a clumsy and banal attack on the man himself not a movie review. Truth be told, those who appreciated Andrew and understood what he fought against wouldn’t expect any kind of journalistic integrity from the very people that he spent a career exposing for the biased agenda driven tools of the institutionalized left that they are.

What is surprising is the lengths that outlets like the Washington Post will go to stop the voices of the everyman, average citizens, and the very people Andrew fought for so hard to be heard. But that is preciously what they have done.

Within hours of the biased review, average movie-goers did what WaPo apparently falsely offers as an opportunity to be heard and 7 citizen reviews were posted. In theory, viewer generated reviews provide a balance to what could be a biased or unprofessional official review written with an axe to grind.

But this morning, those positive reviews were nowhere to be found. They were flushed down the WaPo memory hole!

Here’s a screen grab of the website with the positive reviews:

And, here’s a screen grab after the Washington Post removed all of the positive reviews.

A citizen warrior, the type of person that Andrew respected and honored above all else, noticed the problem. She contacted the Post and was told the “problem” was fixed at 11:14 am. When Director Andrew Marcus contacted the Post to try to figure out what happened, he was told it was a “technical glitch” and that “Somehow, our feed ended up erasing those showtimes and when I went in to fix it today, it seems the reader reviews got inadvertently lost.” They still have not provided a response to whether or not any other movie reviews experienced this “glitch”.

Clearly, the Washington Post is not only comfortable Hating Breitbart, they are equally comfortable hating their readers and those who do not tow the liberal line. As one citizen reviewer wrote, after WaPo’s confusing and hard to believe glitch excuses on why reader reviews were scrubbed, “That in itself is an indictment of the system that Brietbart so justly attacked while he was alive.”

HATING BREITBART – Feature-length Documentary
Captures the Final Days of Controversial New Media Pioneer, Andrew Breitbart;

Hating Breitbart opened well for a political documentary, earning more than $10,000 per screen in four markets. Marcus said Rocky Mountain Pictures will extend the release to more battleground states – where President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney are running neck-and-neck — beginning Nov. 2 to take advantage of the political climate surrounding the Nov. 6 presidential election.

“Hating Breitbart” is now playing in select US theaters.

    Any word when/if HB is coming to the Seattle area? I’d be going to my first theater movie since 2005 if it were being shown locally.

    WaPo just proved that the premise of HB is true. About the only piece of reliable data coming from them recently.

    What did you expect ?…… “Welcome, sonny”, that was a nice movie ?…… “Make yourself at home” and tell us about Andrew ?…… “Marry my daughter” ?…… You’ve got to remember that these are just simple Democrats…… These are people of the elite who know better than us…… The common clay of the new one-world government…… You know…… Totalitarian Jihadist morons.

    There are 9 reviews now all positive. You must have hit a snag in the site.

    After Romney wins, I think the country really needs to have a serious dialogue about the media “situation” and how to resolve it. Tonight O’Reilly did a list of the top MSM anchors /hosts and there was not ONE conservative on the list.

    These liberal media types think that conservatives are un-American when it is they who are trying to change America into something that it is not and has never been.

    What they report, and especially what they don’t report, presents a picture that is so distorted, that they don’t deserve any consideration of being impartial or objective.

    That they are trying to change America so is subversive, and they should be called to account for it.

    Some of the reviews, plus new ones (including mine), are back. Let’s see if they scrub these.

    Preference cascade is going to sweep over the WaPo like the Japanese tsunami did over the fishing villages. Those who are rational enough to realize the progressive myth is imploding are fleeing for higher ground. The WaPo shoots those in the back that dare flee, and puts up posters proclaiming everything is save.

    Unlike the Japanese disaster, however, those who drown will not be victims. Their fate is commanded by history: those who lie and sustain tyrannies and violence will not find anyone to fish them out when the waters roar in.

    It’s “toe” the line. As in old-timey boxing after a knockdown. A line was scratched in the dirt or sand and the fighters were told to “Toe the line” on opposite sides before the fight would resume. This is also where the phrase “Start from scratch” came from. You’re welcome.

    Jim, here is the entry for 2016, notice no reader’s reviews:

    Critic rating: (1 1/2 STARS DIDN’T COPY)

    In ‘2016,’ Obama is fear itself
    By Michael O’Sullivan
    Friday, August 24, 2012

    “I’m not trying to bash Obama in a crude way,” Dinesh D’Souza says in a TV news clip featured in the conservative writer and commentator’s new documentary “2016: Obama’s America.” It’s a comment recycled from one of D’Souza’s many media appearances in defense of his well-known, earlier attacks on the president, both in a controversial 2010 Forbes magazine cover story and two subsequent books, on which this film is based.

    One thing can be said for “2016.” It’s anything but crude. The best infomercials rarely are.

    Look up the definition of the word fraud, after reading it think about how it applies to what the MSM have been and are doing. The 1st Amendment was never intended to protect the commission of fraud.

    I think I’d trust a news outlet that’s honest and just comes out with a hammer and sickle instead of pretending to be fair while shutting down free speech…
