LOS ANGELES, March 1 (UPI) -- Blogger, TV commentator and author Andrew Breitbart has died of natural causes in Los Angeles, his Web site Big Hollywood announced Thursday. He was 43.
Breitbart contributed columns to The Washington Times, was a frequent guest on Fox News programs and was a former editor for the Drudge Report.
In addition to BigHollywood.com, he ran the Web sites Breitbart.com, BigGovernment.com, BigJournalism.com and BigPeace.com. He also appeared on the TV panel programs "Real Time with Bill Maher" and "Dennis Miller."
"With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart," a statement from Big Hollywood said Thursday.
"Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles," the statement read. "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."
He is survived by his wife Susie Bean and their four children.
We lost one of the great ones. I hope more Breitbart’s emerge to take his place. RIP.
Prayers for the family and for us! This is horrible.
God is welcoming him home.
Rest, finally, in peace-you’ll be missed sorely.
He was “Vince Fostered”; of that, I have no doubt.
Since he was ruthlessly dogged, I’m sure he put “the goods” in safe hands. He was too brilliant NOT to have.
Prayers for his wife and children.
An enemy of the state has been dealt with.
Funny how this happened the same day Sheriff Joe is supposed to dump what he has.
Conservatism has lost a good ally, may the Good Lord rest his soul!
This really sucks. RIP
Did he have an undiagnosed (or not publicly known) disease?
It's something about allying with Satan, evil, demons... doing evil with Satan's dark protection.
They will eventually be judged by God and pay the price for the evil deeds they have done in this world.
I am secure in my belief that Andrew is in Heaven as his eternal reward for his good and faithful service.
RIP, Andrew. Another will take up your sword and armor.
Yes, undiagnoed anti-Obamanism.
Well, that sure explains Mother Teresa...
Because none of us has the murderous heart nor the know-how to do up one of those little poisonous tree-frog darts as are found in Kenya and mysteriously, more recently, on Pennsylvania Avenue.
RIP, Andrew. You will not be forgotten. I'm devastated by this news. A major blow to conservativism. It's very suspicious.
Amen and well-said — You expressed my feelings exactly!
“How would anyone know if it was natural causes without an autopsy?”
I was thinking the same thing!
RIP, Mr. Breitbart...
Thank you for being an American Patriot.
Sad, sad news for us.
Let’s hope that the millions of us that he reached can each our OWN little part in restoring the Country and cleaning out the trash.
Andrew’s passing is sad because he was a beacon of light in the pitch black night, that we all have been living in the past three years. Rest In Peace my friend.
So shocked and sad to hear about Andrew, first hearing about it as Rush eulogized him when he started his show today. I first saw Andrew on Red Eye and liked him immediately. A good man and all he did and was doing, such a loss.
RIP and condolences to his wife and four children. Never knew that he was Orson Bean’s son-in-law.
Does article say he first appeared on Red Eye?? Haven’t read the whole thing.
A terrible loss for his family, friends and those who admired what Andrew was doing, as did I.
And I’ll bet anyone dimes to donuts that champagne corks are (or will soon be) popping in the offices of Axelrod, 0bama and other ‘Rats that Breitbart kept in a perpetual state of nervousness.
Here’s hoping that all of his material was safeguarded with trustworthy conservative patriots.
