Andrew Kaczynski at Buzzfeed released an interesting 1991 video of Obama in a diversity protest at Harvard. Here’s the video:
Breitbart subsequently posted this:
Earlier today, Buzzfeed’s Ben Smith announced on Twitter that video researcher Andrew Kaczynski had released “the mysterious Harvard/Obama/race video that the Breitbart folks have been talking about.”
The video, which Kaczynski says was “licensed from a Boston television station,” shows a young Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright–about whom we will be releasing significant information in the coming hours.
However, the video has been selectively edited–either by the Boston television station or by Buzzfeed itself. Over the course of the day, Breitbart.com will be releasing additional footage that has been hidden by Obama’s allies in the mainstream media and academia.
Breitbart.com Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak and Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro will appear on The Sean Hannity Show to discuss the tape. The full tape will be released tonight on Fox News’ Hannity.
I don’t know Andrew K. personally, but in all my dealings with him he’s been an honest broker. In Breitbart’s piece they leave room for the fact that the TV station may have edited the video, but their big bold title screaming “Ben Smith Releases Selectively Edited Obama Race Video” suggests dishonesty.
Andrew has said on his twitter account:
I published what I had from a 1991 broadcast and I didn’t selectively edit anything.
I believe him.
Apparently Breitbart has more of the video, including how this is tied to Jeremiah Wright, and they will be on Hannity to talk about it tonight. Sounds like an excellent evening.
