Fake Pimp Stunt Pretty Much Equivalent To Torture Exposé

Spot the difference
"This is the Abu Ghraib of journalism! Abu Ghraib, Abu Ghraib, Abu Ghraib, Abu Ghraib, Abu Ghraib, everywhere you go. I heard that two million times, from when they reported in 2004 to right now. This is the Abu Ghraib of Abu Ghraib. Abu Ghraibs for everyone! NEA Abu Ghraib! White House Abu Ghraib! ACORN Abu Ghraib! Journalism Abu Ghraib!"
-Conservative gadfly Andrew Breitbart puts the Acorn mess in perspective.

I don't even understand my old high school classmate's rant this time, but I'd like to point out again, that going into to an inner city charity dressed up in your old Pimp 'n' Ho party costume from college is racist. Period.

Well, actually this ACORN thing IS the Abu Ghraib "of journalism"(?). It starts with a preposterous premise. Hinges on outrage brought on by images. Reactions to it shake out predictably along polarized sides. It fills the news cycle. It is quickly forgotten once a couple people get slaps on the wrists except as "that Abu Ghraib thing" or "tat ACORN thing."

kind of reminds me of the "genocide genocide genocide cheese sandwich cheese sandwich cheese sandwich" rant in we wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families for similar reasons.
