This morning while I was on my way to the Media Filing Center here at the Republican National Convention, the story went viral that David Chalian, Washington bureau chief of Yahoo News, had been caught on an open microphone saying — in regard to the coincidence of the GOP convention and Hurricane Isaac — “They aren’t concerned at all . . . They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.”
There was no time for me to blog about that, because I had to rush to the world premiere screening of Hating Breitbart, the new documentary film directed by Andrew Marcus. And while I was watching that movie, Yahoo News fired David Chalian.
This is strictly a coincidence, of course, just as it is strictly a coincidence that the guy who exposed Chalian is Newsbusters founder Matthew Sheffield, who is featured prominently in Hating Breitbart.
An awful lot of coincidences happened in Andrew Breitbart’s life.
I mean, if you believe in “coincidences,” which I don’t.
