While the mainstream media is just now picking up this story, the video and news on this topic have been floating around Twitter throughout the day. After an apparent video obtained by the late Andrew Breitbart surfaced up at BuzzFeed, news of why this story is so big began to explode.
The Big Government team explains that it’s the context that matters, and BG’s Joel Pollak and Ben Shapiro emphasized that Obama was endorsing the “Jeremiah Wright of academia.”
But detractors have reduced the matter to a simplistic #huggate brouhaha.
Don't worry, folks. Some day we'll get through this and start talking about birth control again.

The coverup begins: Obama adds a "T" to his "HUG LIFE" tattoo. #HugGate

The real scandal is the way PBS and Buzzfeed digitally removed the teleprompters from the clip. #huggate

BG’s Ben Shapiro writes: “There’s far more coming on Derrick Bell. This is just the beginning. And this video is a smoking gun showing that Barack Obama not only associated with radicals, he was their advocate.”
