Andrew Breitbart, Well-Known Conservative Blogger, Dead at 43

From CNN – Andrew Breitbart, a well-known conservative blogger, has died, his attorney confirmed Thursday. He was 43.

Breitbart was also known as a taking head on conservative television shows and got his start helping to run the original right-wing online media behemoth, the Drudge Report, then started his own website.

Recently, this video below shows Andrew losing it over Occupy protesters.

Breitbart was the first to post the infamous Twitter photos (left) of U.S. Rep Anthony Weiner last year, in which the congressman appeared bare-chested and in his underpants. Weiner eventually stepped down amid the scandal.

An In Memoriam post on his website breitbart.tv said that it was with a “terrible feeling of pain and loss” that they announces his death.

“Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles,” the post said. “We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior. Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.”

According to the post, in a new conclusion to one of his books, he wrote about how much he loved his job and fighting for what he believed in. Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

“Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us,” the post stated.

Here is a very good interview of Andrew Breitbart by Dylan Ratigan on the MSNBC Dylan Ratigan Show.

  1. Don’t know too much about him. If he was a rationale person who could logically and civilly defend his viewpoint, then it is a loss.
    If not, well…Well, anything I say wouldn’t be appropriate.

    Godspeed, Andrew.

  2. I’d never heard of him before the Shirley Sherrod incident. Then came the Weiner photos. Don’t ask me what I thought of his ethics. Still, it’s a tragedy to lose a husband and father of 4 at age 43. My son is 43 …

    • I agree. Just because I may not agree nor like someone doesn’t mean I have ill-will or wish anything bad on them. They way I look at some people is living in their own misery is punishment enough. But, no, I hate to see someone die so young. Younger than I am.

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
