CNN's Peter Bergen receives Alinsky Smear Award
The Freedom Leadership Conference has given its “Saul Alinsky Smear of the Month Award” for April to Peter Bergen of CNN for suggesting immediately after the Boston Marathon bombings that the act was possibly the work of “right wing extremists.”

The award was announced by David Denholm at the Conference’s April meeting in Fairfax, Virginia. Denholm, one of the conservative movement’s leading experts on Saul Alinsky and the “Rules for Radicals,” took note of Alinsky’s Eighth Rule for Power Tactics, “Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purposes.”

The Freedom Leadership Conference contends that for Bergen to use the Boston Marathon bombing tragedy to further the liberal media’s crusade against conservatives is a perfect example of the use of Alinsky tactics and is deserving of the Alinsky Smear of the Month Award. Bergen has been sent a colorful certificate commemorating his achievement.
