The Innocent ACORN Worker Breitbart Got Fired Last Year

Bob Somerby finds one journalist who has the sense to look at Breitbart's deplorable record. And he reminds us of the injustice done to ACORN:

JOHN-HALL (7/23/10): All of which create a fertile environment for someone like Andrew Breitbart, who, as of this writing, was as unrepentant as the devil. This is the guy, after all, who helped ruin the career of...Juan Carlos Vera, the San Diego ACORN worker who was shown—in a heavily edited video—conspiring with a fake pimp and prostitute to transport underage girls across the border.

Conveniently, the video didn't show Vera reporting the incident to police after the two left. Vera was fired before all the facts came in. Sound familiar? Not surprisingly, Vera is suing.
