Eight years ago today, Andrew Breitbart collapsed on a Brentwood sidewalk and died of massive heart failure.
While he was taken from his family and this world far too soon, his memory and legacy live on in America’s media and cultural landscape.
The clip below is an excerpt from my documentary Hating Breitbart, filmed in Nashville, TN at the one and only National Tea Party Convention in February of 2010.
In this clip, originally posted here in 2017, Andrew declares war against the mainstream media on behalf of himself, James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and every decent American member of the much maligned and nationally vilified Tea Party movement.
His comments were made in the wake of the institutional left’s dishonest “Fake News” coverage of the James O’Keefe & Hannah Giles undercover investigation into ACORN.
The journalism performed by O’Keefe, Giles and Breitbart was so devastating that ACORN lost all of its funding and was dissolved. Yet, the mainstream media not only failed to adequately investigate ACORN, they disgustingly investigated and attacked James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and Andrew Breitbart.
Andrew had enough. America had enough. The war was on.
I first met Andrew Breitbart in 2007 on a trip to Israel.
I cherish the trip and time spent with Andrew.
