I think that it it says something bad about a government agency if they make personnel decisions on the basis of unverified information from untrustworthy sources. But it says something much worse about a self-proclaimed journalist, someone whose job is ostensibly to inform the public, to publish such a dubious video clip without making even the most cursory attempt to verify the contents of the video. And bear in mind, this is the charitable account of Breitbart's behavior. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it turns out that he knew how dishonestly edited the video was when he decided to publish it.
