Blogmocracy Radio 03 October 2012 – The Breitbart Interview

From Blogmocracy

From The Ruse and Fail of LGF – Prologue:

In September 2011, there was some behind the scenes discussion about dumping all the LGF Archives. So much valuable work was about to be given away and thrown into the communal dumpster. I hated the thought, and wondered “Who despises Charles Johnson so much that he might be willing to pay for the Archive?” Twitterwars were in full swing, and the obvious answer was Andrew Breitbart.

So I emailed him. We talked over the phone a bit about the work of The Boiler Room Crew, and just before the conversation ended I asked him if he’d be interested in calling into our podcast, not expecting him to do so. He replied “Sure. When is it?”

What a jaw dropper.

The day of the podcast, 03 October 2011, was nerve-wracking as we couldn’t tell anyone who the mystery guest was (to prevent a troll storm) and we weren’t sure if he would call in at all. We had an hour to go and hadn’t heard anything, so I emailed him to see if he was still interested. His response was two words: “I’m in.”

The audio above is that interview. Rodan & Savage did a great job keeping their composure while speaking to The Happy Warrior.

Five months later he was gone.

Since All The Cool Kids Are Doing It

If you’re wondering what this is all about, Bernie has become a meme almost overnight, and it’s only proper that we introduce him to Charles the Slimmer.

That’s also why Charles does it, and we know it. Kudos to DEZes,

Have A Thanksgiving, Charles.

From the Draft Files: Chen Zhen’s Unfinished Business

In 2011, Chen Zhen left this unfinished draft, and it’s not certain where he was going with it as it contained only three of Charles’ comments in text format. Here they are in the order Chen logged them, unedited, and as found in The Wayback Machine.
