Stranahan said part of the reason why he thinks Huffington and Sekoff are hesitant to publicly stand up for Breitbart against the racism allegations is because it would damage the false narrative the left has created about Breitbart – and it would further stain Arianna’s already tarnished image in the liberal blogosphere.
“When you talk about the grassroots left – go to a site like Daily Kos,” Stranahan said. “Daily Kos is not elites, it’s regular, run-of-the-mill liberals. Take a look at the reaction to Arianna over there. I would say it’s 80 percent against her and 20 percent in favor. It’s the same thing if you look at FireDogLake or if you look at Democratic Underground or if you look at any site like that.”
