I want to praise David Frum for his new role as the conscience of the right. I agree with him completely on everything he has to say to his brethren in the conservative media, with the exception of this part.

When Dan Rather succumbed to the forged Bush war record hoax in 2004, CBS forced him into retirement. Breitbart is the conservative Dan Rather, but there will be no discredit, no resignation for him.

Assuming those documents were indeed forged, Andrew Breitbart is still not the conservative Dan Rather. In this analogy, it’s Tom Vilsack who is Dan Rather. Breitbart is the forger.
