Cringeworthy: CNN's Soledad O'Brien Makes a Fool of Herself While Attacking Breitbart's Joel Pollak

It wasn't pretty.

O'Brien took the position the video of Obama and Derrick Bell wasn't a bombshell, but she did so in a dismissive manner and with a heavy dose of attempted sarcasm. This went well beyond journalistic skepticism; it was advocacy. Or attempted advocacy. Pollak, Breitbart's editor-in-chief, demolished the panel--with the exception Amy Holmes, who wondered why the information didn't surface in 2008. Unlike O'Brien, Pollak remained polite and appropriate the entire time.


Added: If you can't see the Breitbart embed, watch it at Mediaite.
