Blogger-Provocateur Andrew Breitbart Dead at 43

Hosted by

A phenomenon in conservative publishing, Andrew Breitbart helped start the Huffington Post, was a long-time editor of the Drudge Report and ran his own websites attacking what he called "big Hollywood," "big government" and "big media." He brought down New York's Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner for tweeting pictures of himself in his underwear and was accused of cherry-picking a speech by a black Agriculture Department official to make it sound like a racist attack on white people. The 43-year-old had a history of heart trouble and died suddenly near his home in Brentwood early this morning. Mickey Kaus is based in Venice where he writes the blog Kausfiles for the website Daily Caller.
