Dana Loesch Reminds Us That Right-Wing Bloggers Lie Every Day

Check out this tweet from Dana Loesch:

This claim is absolutely, categorically false. Media Matters, to their credit, would not touch this story with a ten-foot pole. Eric Boehlert mentioned it in a post, but the post did not claim that the story was "fake;" rather, it criticized CNN for allowing Breitbart on the network after he has been discredited multiple times. And, for the record, Breitbart did not fail to hit Boehlert's low expectations for him: Breitbart explicitly cited a source that he later admitted was not credible to make the claim that Congressman Weiner "had relationships" with "quite young girls." Relying on unvetted information from completely untrustworthy sources is not the kind of garbage a respectable news organization should entertain.

So yeah, Loesch lied again, or at least did not bother to check her facts. Keep that in mind as she spends the next week lecturing people about how principled Breitbart bloggers are.
