Breitbart Challenges MSNBC's Bashir to Take a Lie Detector Test
Following Martin Bashir's absolutely pathetic interview with Andrew Breitbart Wednesday, the conservative publisher has proposed a $10,000 bet with the perilously liberal MSNBC host.
"I’m willing to take a lie detector test next to him on anything," Breitbart told WOR radio's Steve Malzberg Thursday, "if he’s willing to take a lie detector test next to me talking about whether he read my book" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
ANDREW BREITBART: I will, look, how about this? How about a $10,000, I’m willing to take a lie detector test next to him on anything, Sherrod, all the stuff, where he thinks I’m Mr. Selective Edit, all the propaganda against me, if he’s willing to take a lie detector test next to me talking about whether he read my book.
STEVE MALZBERG, HOST: Alright, great. So you’re making this challenge.
BREITBART: Absolute, well, you know, I’d, let’s see. Let’s just have a lie detector test because he could read the book between now and then. But he did not read the book.
MALZBERG: Well, if he had read it, you could always preface it the question would be asked to him by the lie detector administrator, “Did you read it prior to the interview?”
BREITBART: There you go.
BREITBART: I’m willing to take that. I’ll, I’ll do my lie detector…
MALZBERG: Ten grand. Ten grand.
BREITBART: …he can do his lie detector test.
MALZBERG: And for ten grand, right?
For those that missed it, Breitbart on Wednesday accused Bashir of having not read his book "Righteous Indignation" prior to their interview, and instead just got talking points from the George Soros-funded shills at Media Matters.
This certainly wouldn't be the first time liberal media members have questioned conservative authors about their books without having actually read them. Frankly, it happens all the time.
In this instance, Breitbart has marvelously thrown down the gauntlet.
Will Bashir accept the challenge?
