Because his head was so far up his ass, he suffocated.

Too soon?

He did the job the "Obama gives me a thrill up my leg" media should have been doing.

RIP.

He probably faked his own death so he could collect all the hateful comments about him and further his "conservative victimhood" schtick. I'll play. Good riddance. The nation is a slightly better place today (assuming you're actually dead), Andrew.

No surprise that Ned would celebrate the life of a serial liar and propagandist. He was a great role-model.

Best fake journalist ever. It's too bad he didn't get his day in court to prove Shirley Sherrod wrong.

Whatever his failures as a person and a 'journalist,' Andrew Breitbart was a fellow human being and I take no joy or comfort in his passing.

You can find someone's actions to be vile and still recognize that they left people behind who loved them.

Requiscat in pace, you serial liar and propagandist.

Wow, just wow. My favorite part is the end:

And so Breitbart died the way he lived: surrounded by partisan rancor and conspiracy theories. He would have wanted it this way.


Death is a sad thing for those close to you. I don't wish that upon any family or friends.

In terms of his career. He was a hack blogger and nothing more. His ACORN conspiracy fell flat on it's face. He unseated a member of congress cause that dude tweeted dirty pictures. He was nothing more than a sensationalist and people eat that shit up. He and Drudge and those like them are the equivalent of the British Tabloids.

Ha!

Breitbart and Drudge mastered the aggregation of available "news" stories to weave their own bigger story. Basically using the partisan, biased words of the LSM against them. Talk about poking the lazy Beltway Kool-Aid drinkers with a sharp stick and turning the media world on its head.

The Acorn and Weiner ( :mrgreen: ) exposes put everyone on notice that "business as usual" in "news reporting" was over.

So, today, brain-dead leftists everywhere are cheering while the Peolsis, Reeds and Obamas of the world are breathing a sigh of relief.

Just the way Breitart would have wanted it.

Evidence obtained by Brown tells a somewhat different story, however, as reflected in three videotapes made at ACORN locations in California. One ACORN worker in San Diego called the cops. Another ACORN worker in San Bernardino caught on to the scheme and played along with it, claiming among other things that she had murdered her abusive husband. Her two former husbands are alive and well, the Attorney General's report noted. At the beginning and end of the Internet videos, O'Keefe was dressed as a 1970s Superfly pimp, but in his actual taped sessions with ACORN workers, he was dressed in a shirt and tie, presented himself as a law student, and said he planned to use the prostitution proceeds to run for Congress. He never claimed he was a pimp.

Ah yes, journa... sensational blogging at it's finest. That'll teach the media to be honest. :roll:

So you don't think that CBS/NBC/ABC don't edit video to "tell a story"?

Dude, you're killing me.
