Breitbart’s Boyle Gets Applause at Presser

Breitbart News‘ Matthew Boyle is occasionally needled by members of the media for his in-your-face ways and reporting tactics. But today he can throw all that in their faces as he received applause at a morning presser on immigration outside the Capitol.

Willingham, who wrote the above, is communications director for Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas). As it was explained to us, tea partiers at a press conference on immigration… arranged by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) applauded Boyle before he even posed the question. He introduced myself “Matt Boyle from Breitbart News” and all the tea partiers applauded.

After that, the question he asked was: “I wanted to ask you guys, yesterday on his show, Rush Limbaugh talked about how there’s all these special interests and big money behind this push for this Gang of Eight bill, if you could address that really quick please.”
