Distorted 'Activism'

I was dismayed to see Edward Gilbreath ("A More Excellent Way," November 2010) call Andrew Breitbart a "media activist." Breitbart's use of new media tools to distribute distorted portrayals of social justice advocates might be called "digital character assassination" or "paranoia pimping," but associating Briebart with media activism is a slur against the thousands of committed Christians who are media activists, working to promote a more democratic and more accountable media and communication system.
