Commentary: ABC, Breitbart, Olbermann and media credibility

It is seldom a good thing when the news becomes the news. We've seen that twice in recent weeks. First there was ABC News' ill-fated flirtation with blogger Andrew Breitbart. In the face of heavy criticism, ABC backed off its decision to make Breitbart part of its election-night coverage. How prominent a role he was to have played is a point of contention between the two parties; ABC has said it cancelled the plan because Breitbart kept exaggerating the role he'd been asked to play.
