Andrew Breitbart was indeed a happy warrior, one of the greatest innovators of new media who has, since the dawn of new media, been using it to push aside old media and left-wing activists in order to advance freedom.
He was on my show just yesterday, to discuss in detail the latest controversy in which he was involved, but we began by talking about music and new media –his favorite band the The– and he was, as always, full of the joy of the political battle. He will be greatly missed by his wonderful wife and children, by his hundreds of friends across the country, and by all sincere believers in crusading journalism.
For every enemy, Andrew had ten friends, and for every critic, a score of accomplishments they could never begin to approach much less match. He will be greatly missed.
Later today we will post here yesterday’s chat as well as the long interview we did on the occasion of the publication of his wonderful memoir, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save The World, which will remain for generations a guidebook for young journalists moving from left to right.
