Skip to comments.In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.
We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.
Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.
Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:
I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, andfamouslyI enjoy making enemies.
Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. Ive lost friends, perhaps dozens. But Ive gained hundreds, thousandswho knows?of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

The “natural causes” part is the big giveaway that this is fake.
I'll hold on to hope for just a bit longer.
Oh No. So sad. Prayers to his family. I always enjoyed hearing him speak. He was a true patriot. How sad.
Haven’t seen this anywhere else and I’ve read four newspapers and Yahoo already this morning.
I am stunned. Yet I can’t find anything besides this news item. Strange.
If it’s true, I am very disheartened and sad. He is one of the fearless ones.
I sure as hell hope so. Nothing shows on any other site about this.
He was just on a local radio show this week and he sounded fine.
So far this is the only link that has this information. Nothing on twitter, nothing on google news, or anything. So, I’m curious if this is a prank.
Yes, he said he had videos at CPAC.
It’s not on Wiki yet................
Breitbart had a lot of enemies on the left. He passed last night of so called natural causes. One would suggest an in depth investigation. He was a fighter may God rest his soul.
We’ve lost an incredibly important piece from our side of the chess board.
Real shocker...I wouldn’t believe it except it is on his web site. Very low key.
Very suspicious. I think his site has been hacked.
Already, I'm highly suspicious. How does someone aged 43 die "unexpectedly" of "natural causes?"
His courageous example will be sorely missed.
The devil is happy this morning.
—I dont understand how a 42 year old can die of natural causes. This is horrible.—
He can’t. The term is not used any more as a cause of death. That is one reason this smacks of hoax.
It looks like it was only reported 10mins ago
That was my reaction too.
