From the folks at Jack & Jill Politics and ColorOfChange:
Dear ColorOfChange.org member,
We just learned that tonight, Andrew Breitbart — the man behind the take-down of Shirley Sherrod — will appear on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Turns out this will be the second time that Maher has had Breitbart on since Breitbart was exposed as a fraud in the Sherrod incident. In the first show, despite Breitbart having recently been shown to be a con-artist, Maher referred to him kindly as a “publisher and journalist” and engaged him as a credible commentator.1
Bill Maher needs to hear from us — if Breitbart is going to appear on his show at all, Maher needs to tell his audience that Breitbart is neither a journalist nor a commentator — that in fact he’s a liar, a race-baiter, and a con-artist. Maher needs to know that it’s irresponsible for him to give Breitbart a stage without making Breitbart’s history and penchant for deception clear.
Can you make a quick phone call to Maher’s show? The script below makes it easy (or you can come up with your own).
(323) 575-7700 – Real Time with Bill Maher

Update: another deceptively edited video and hit piece from Breitbart.
