Andrew Brietbart is known for being a lightning rod for controversy. The conservative blogger and founder of Breitbart.com and BigGovernment.com is never one to pull punches on divisive political topics ranging from Shirley Sherrod to James O'Keefe. After we were guests on Fox News Channel's Red Eye last night, I caught up with Mr. Breitbart for an impromptu and revealing interview.
Among other things, we spoke about his role in the media fire storm surrounding the administration's dismissal of Shirley Sherrod, his appearance on the inaugural episode of CNN's new Parker Spitzer show and about uber-controversial activist James O'Keefe and O'Keefe's recent CNN prank that made worldwide headlines. Be sure to watch the full videos below and read the full post including highlights on my blog on CBSNews.com/OnTheScene
Here he talks about going on the first episode of CNN's Parker Spitzer and why he believes his soundbite about Shirley Sherrod was cut.
The video below includes our interview about activist James O'Keefe's recent CNN prank. He gives his advice to O'Keefe and defends reporter Abbie Boudreau, who he believes shouldn't have been targeted.
