In a recent article, Andrew Breitbart claimed that Ariana Huffington reached out to him about blogging at the Huffington Post:
According to Breitbart, the idea for him writing for HuffPo’s front page came directly from the website’s founder, Arianna Huffington herself.However, Breitbart's blogger Lee Stranahan, whom Breitbart regularly promotes as "the Huffington-Post-blogger-who's-totally-liberal-except-for-hating-Planned-Parenthood-the-NAACP-ACORN-poor-people-Color-of-Change-President-Obama-the-Democratic-Party-Daily-Kos-public-schools-and-NPR" (by the way, if you think this means that maybe Stranahan isn't a liberal, that makes you a "facist"), claims that it was his idea and that he encouraged Breitbart to reach out to Ariana Huffington:
While he was at her house a month or so ago, Huffington floated the idea of her conservative friend writing some more prominent pieces for her site. After thinking about it for a few weeks, Breitbart agreed and published “NPR Is Collateral Damage in Battle to Brand Tea Party” on March 11.
The Breitbart thing is partially my fault. I suggested to Andrew that he reach out beyond his normal base and spend a little time writing to people on the other side, specifically at HuffPo. I’ve had a few months now of seeing up close how Andrew has been badly maligned and viciously misrepresented by his critics and I thought that liberals deserved a chance to hear what he had to say without a filter.
A couple of weeks back, I encouraged Andrew Breitbart to reach out a little to the other side and write something for The Huffington Post. He wrote a piece about the just breaking NPR scandal and he brought up those video tapes again that show that stories about the Tea Party’s racism were fake as the recent ‘poor people can only carry $20’ story.
So one of them isn't telling the truth. Which is it? Was it Stranahan's great idea? Or did Ariana Huffington reach out to Breitbart?
