Anti-Andrew Breitbart Campaign

In 2011, Color of Change "marshaled 43,000 calls to HuffPo demanding that the front page be Breitbart-free," as reported by journalist Dave Weigel for Slate. Weigel explained that the Color of Change "campaigns with a 1-2-3 strategy: Pick 'race-baiting' conservative. Demand that the conservative lose his platform. Melt the phones and inboxes until victory."[3]
