Breitbart crowing about NYT recognition? Look out, guys!

From Lee Stranahan at Breitbart:

With Monday’s news that Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin is – finally – leaving her husband Anthony Weiner after his most recent sexting scandal hit the New York Post Sunday night, it is worth remembering it was Andrew Breitbart and Breitbart News that broke the original scandal. If the mainstream media had had its way, the Weiner scandal would be just another so-called “right-wing conspiracy theory.”
This history is especially worth remembering at a time when both Hillary Clinton herself and the media elites have spent the past couple of weeks attacking Breitbart News and its former executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, who has taken a leave of absence to head up Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. More.

Meanwhile, from Breitbart staff;

Michael M. Grynbaum and John Herrman write a must-read above-the-fold frontpage story in today’s New York Times, entitled “Breitbart Rises From Outlier to Potent Voice in Campaign“:

Breitbart News has arrived.

The opinion and news site, once a curiosity of the fringe right wing, is now an increasingly powerful voice, and virtual rallying spot, for millions of disaffected conservatives who propelled Donald J. Trump to the Republican nomination for president.

Reality check: Translation: If Trump loses, Breitbart is in legacy media’s gun sights. From their perspective, it is long past time to put a stop to private revelations of progressives’ scandals, without permission.

Meanwhile, Mashable urges us to just be sympathetic to weinertexting.

Translation: Or else. Eventually, public masturbation, etc. will be legal and woe betide anyone who attacks its status as a free, natural, healthy expression of sexuality, and a human right. We will be told that chimps do it.
