Breitbart Reporter Gets Himself Validated In His Own Story

The last time Breitbart News reporter and Sen. Ted Cruz‘s (R-Texas) babysitter Matthew Boyle wrote a hit piece on Brad Dayspring, the War and Peace essay was 6,000 words.

Boyle ran a followup Tuesday after Dayspring surfaced in a Monday night interview between Fox News host Sean Hannity and presidential hopeful Scott Walker.

This was a lot shorter. Word count: 1,278.

In the interview, Hannity asks about the negative vibe swirling around Dayspring as of late.

To set the record a bit straighter, by law Walker is not allowed coordinate his Super PACs, for which Dayspring works. But Boyle seems to think it was a knife in the back on Walker’s part to say, “Well, he doesn’t work for me, he works for the Super PACs out there and by ‘he doesn’t work for me’ I can’t tell any Super PACs anything.”

That didn’t stop Breitbart News from insisting in its headline that “SCOTT WALKER THROWS ANTI-CONSERVATIVE SUPER PAC ADVISER BRAD DAYSPRING UNDER BUS: ‘HE DOESN’T WORK FOR ME.”

Granted, Boyle doesn’t hide his contempt for Dayspring. And Dayspring hasn’t exactly endeared himself to some conservatives around town.

“Amazing that this would rise to the level of Walker being asked about it in his biggest interview after announcing,” a longtime D.C. political operative who refused to be identified by name told The Mirror. “Walker is doing his initial interview as a formal candidate, and Sean Hannity, to an audience of millions, asks about Brad Daysping? That had to have caused further internal headaches over his hire.”

But really, the best part of Boyle’s story comes when he injects himself into his own piece and displays a source agreeing with his thought.

“When this reporter noted to Bossie how political consultants like Dayspring, in the new media age, can no longer hide in the shadows—and if this presents a new dynamic in campaigns and elections that candidates need to worry about—he replied, ‘that is true.'”

Good job, Boyle, even if you have to say so yourself.
