"From what I've read about this script, though not executed, it is patently gross and offensive," Breitbart said in a statement at the time. "It's not his detractors to whom he also owes this public airing. It's to his legion of supporters."

Breitbart denied a split in an interview with Mediaite, however, saying "I've said all along that James needs to be an independent journalist. His ACORN videos weren't posted exclusively on Breitbart sites." He added, "The mainstream media uses me as a way to marginalize James ... and James as a means to marginalize me."

TPM put in a request for comment to O'Keefe, but has not yet heard back.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
