Headline Of The Day

James O'Keefe has agreed to pay a $100,000 settlement to the victim of his famed ACORN scam. Juan Vera was fired from ACORN after O'Keefe edited a secret video to make it appear that he'd agreed to help underage prostitutes sneak into the country.  In fact, Vera called the police moments after O'Keefe left the ACORN office. The above-linked Atlantic piece notes that not only has Breitbart never retracted their claim, the original stories remain on the site "with no correction, no clarification, no editor's note -- nothing." Think Progress has posted a great rundown of other famously false stories continuing to circulate on Breitbart, Daily Caller, and Drudge Report.
