Andrew Breitbart, journalist titan and founder of the “BIG” websites (BigGovernment.com, BigJournalism.com, BigPeace.com et cetera) passed away early this morning, apparently of natural causes.
He was much reviled by progressives. It seems to me that the hate, vitriol and profanity streaming in from the “tolerant” Left indirectly confirms that Andrew Breitbart was on the correct side. (I have written before about the odd doctrines of “tolerance” as seen by progressives; today’s display is sad but unsurprising.) I notice also that a number of the hate-filled tweets are from Twitter IDs suggesting journalism or media positions.
In any event, I had never met AB. I’ve written about him on a few occasions, including some analysis of the Shirley Sherrod/Pigford racism scam exposure.
I was saddened to learn of his death, and wish the best to his family and his team. He has left behind some “BIG” shoes to fill, and his team will be challenged to fill them.
