Cameron Cawthorne writes at Freebeacon.com:
CNN anchor Brianna Keilar claimed on Monday that she witnessed Tea Party protesters spitting on African-American members of Congress and calling them racial slurs when she previously covered the Tea Party as a reporter in 2010.
The incident that Keilar alluded to allegedly occurred on March 20, 2010, when thousands of Americans arrived in Washington, D.C. to protest House Democrats preparing to vote for Obamacare.
"While many reporters said they witnessed the incident, Breitbart News debunked it and found there was no video evidence that it ever happened," Cawthorne reports.
"In April 2010," Cawthorne continues, "Breitbart offered a reward of $100,000 to the United Negro Fund for audio or video evidence to prove that that Reps. André Carson (D., Ind.) and John Lewis (D., Ga.) were called the 'N-word' as they were entering the Cannon House building on Capitol Hill. However, nobody claimed the reward, Breitbart reported."

Update -- Additional Comment From FB: The liberal media today has zero credibility. Less than zero. It's in negative territory like a sinkhole devouring trustworthiness.
I, for one, am not interested in a member of this power establishment expecting me to take at face value anything he or she or it might claim to "report."
Why? Because these folks and this machine have taken sides. Instead of offering evidence to support their reporting, they provide a massaged "news" that is virtually immediately accompanied by a host of opinion people telling everyone what it all means.
You. Shall. Think. This. Way.
And, of course, you are a racist if you happen to think for yourself and therefore do not immediately fall down and worship their unbelievable excellence. "Please, please run my life and do my thinking and choosing for me."
A critical thinker, therefore -- a self-respecting human being, therefore -- no longer respects today's "news" as a source of reporting on real-world events. That well -- that source -- has been poisoned.
And if the anchors and achorettes want to do a news story on who did the poisoning, they might begin by looking in the mirror.
Healthy human beings do not allow dysfunctional systems to abuse them world without end.
Rather, engaging this, ahem, "news coverage" is really much more accurately described as performing opposition research on those who seek to do you in.
Media-viewing is therefore research into seeing what lines of attack and what lines of story-telling elitist, ruling-class interests (Democrat and GOP) and globalist interests and I-want-to-control-you interests are currently swinging at you to advance their agenda and to defeat their opposition's agenda.
In other words, folks: It's not news. It is not news.
It's sales and marketing, it's propaganda and war.
And it's a battle the human being as human being -- unalienable rights and all -- endowed by our Creator with tremendous worth and dignity -- yes, it's a battle the human being as human being must fight and win.
