I'd point out that people like Breitbart discredit themselves. And arguments like the above containing nonsense assertions, dependent on allusive tropes ("ALINKSKY!"), subject-less assertions (to whom does "Your hack" refer?), and irrelevancies ("before TV there was no such thing as 'objective' newspaper journalism") are exactly the same sort of thing that folks like Breitbart bring to the table.
So, your argument is that when one decides to take an action without doing the necessary legwork to verify their materials' integrity, they are discredited?
