    Breitbart dead at 43

    Confirmed by ABC News. From Raw Story,
    Breitbart was a conservative political commentator and website operator who played a key role in founding both The Huffington Post and The Drudge Report. He was also a frequent contributor to Fox News, and a media prankster whose antics drew the ire of many professional journalists. Largely due to his reputation, some reporters appeared hesitant to repeat word of his death out of fear that it may have been a hoax.

    Being as crazy as he was must have put extra pressure on his heart. A bit early in life to go but the world is a little less crazy now.

    He was a true muckraker. The MSM should get back to work and rake muck. That is their job rather than being cheerleaders for their team.

    He's a great loss to the country, and the crooks will sleep a little easier now.

    He was a villain, a duplicitous bastard, a prick, and a special pile of human excrement.

    Such harsh words for someone no longer working the earth. Honestly, unless you know the guy on a personal level, ya can't really justify those words as people tend to put on a show that doesn't always represent them under the spotlight.

    By his own mouth, he lost many friends, you know, the people that did know him and gained many thousands that truly didn't know him other than what he put online. Seems to tell me something. How about you?

    Gomer's laughing, because that's exactly what Breitbart said on learning of Ted Kennedy's death.

    It's always sad to see people go young. Mr. Breitbart had half a lifetime left to learn the error of his ways. Who knows; given enough time he may have even have become a journalist.

    Instead, he will be remembered as a muckraker and liar.
    All 1.21 of them.
