Breitbart's Big Government doesn't understand what "ignored" means

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Throwing itself a year-end pity party, Breitbart's site Big Government lists all the hugely important right-wing 'news' stories that the press "ignored" this year. And sitting at No. 2 is "ACORN," which is curious because when you do a search of Nexis and look for news stories that had multiple mentions of ACORN since Big Government's hidden video camera story broke in September, you discover that there have been more than 5,000 news reports on ACORN this year

So in the world of Breitbart's Big Government, the media "ignored" the ACORN story by covering it more than 5,000 times.
