    He's in a better place now.

    Assuming that wherever racist blowhards go when they die is a better place.

    It is sad when families and friends lose those they care about. Hopefully, no one will try to take his place in "pioneering" a form of supposed journalism that works mostly by grossly misconstruing events, if not outright slander.

    My gut reaction was "good riddance". His public persona was HORRIFIC. He is literally many times on vid lying over many topics. He was quite frankly a sum of all the BS right wing nonsense that knows it is BS.

    My more nicer side wishes such a person was not doomed for all his persanal demons to choose the side of the Rush, the Beck, the Fox News. The owner of Fox News used to make up news stories for the media in the name of Nixon to make him look like a saint. AB was just another hand me down of that mentality.

    I choose not to celebrate nor nor feel bad over people like this. But, if he chose to be the bigoted, lying, spinning side of the coin I tend to lean towards "good riddance".

    I think he leaves behind 3 or 4 kids and a wife. I hope they will be well off from here.

    Yet another "celebrity" I've never heard of.
    Can we include rough summaries of who these people are from now on. I'm too lazy to check wikipedia.

    Actually, it is just that I don't care very much. I look only out of curiosity as to why the thread even got started.

    This is some hack that published and publicized an "expose" implying that ACORN was involved in criminal activity, and on the strength of said documentaries the entire organization was permanently dissolved. Every subsequent state and federal legal investigation (5 total) found that there was absolutely no evidence of wrong-doing by the organization, and that the videos were selectively edited to suggest criminal activity. He later, posted clips of a speech given by a federal employee calling her a racist, which led to her immediate termination and several days of humiliation on all national media. The rest of the speech transcript (and video footage) demonstrated that he had deliberately accused her of believing the exact opposite of what she actually said in the speech, which was about the evils of racism and how she did not harbor such views.

    For this, many conservatives celebrated him as a hero. I don't understand either.

    Shirley Sherrod is REALLY going to go after his money now, rumor is she is going to continue with the lawsuit. So...they probably won't be well off now.

    I feel bad for his family, but good riddance to a propagandist.

    Oh, so he's a "conservative" version of Michael Moore.
    See, nice and simple explanation.
    Thanks.

    Wish he had lived to see Sherrod hand his ass to him.

    Funny thing is, he was pretty disrespectful about Kennedy's death back in 2009.

    So I guess what goes around comes around.

    I'm sure all those across the internets today, those who blasted mightily with their great moral swords about people taking the deaths of Bin Laden & Gaddafi "lightly" are showcasing the same behavior over Breitbart's death.


    Los Angeles Lakers: Drama, guaranteed.

    There are people on Twitter who think Breitbart was killed by Obama. Two problems:

    1. Why would Obama waste his time sending a goon squad after this guy?

    2. He had a history of heart problems, not to mention was an alcoholic and was a known cocaine abuser in the past. Also coupled with supposed rage issues and obesity, and you have the perfect storm for someone who would die as young as he did.

    His public persona was pretty scummy; but still, there's a family without a father and husband now @};-

    Not to mention we're the same age.

    He was a terrible person and I am happy he isn't able to harm anyone else in the world. He was yellow journalism at its worse.

    On a side note, I really can't wait to see how people react when Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church kicks the insane bigot bucket.

    (Relevant to me, because I found the reactions to his [Breitbart] death fascinating)
