Andrew Breitbart died too soon.
He was one of the greatest journalists ever, if not the greatest.
Yes, that’s a statement of fact.
Righteous Indignation is the best autobiography I’ve read. If you can call it an autobiography, that is. I mean, it’s written by Andrew, and it’s about his life, but it’s also about how to handle the liberal media machine.
And make no mistake. The liberal media machine is powerful and dangerous. For example, Andrew spends some time dissecting Bill Clinton’s adultery in the White House, news mostly broken by Matt Drudge, and how largely liberal journalist hacks ran to his defence, supported by their equally hacky Democrat allies and Hollywood elite.
The way in which the president was protected through fake news and bullying, is disgusting.
And yet, nothing has changed.
This very honest and hilariously written book covers a lot of ground, from how internet-hungry Andrew helped launch Huffington Post (which should be called Huffington Compost), to political correctness and suppression of alternative ideas in the media, to the influential power of Hollywood, to how Andrew found himself swinging his political views via the importance of values.
I couldn’t put it down.
Andrew Breitbart died in 2012 from a heart attack.
He was 43.
Do yourself a favour and get your hands on Righteous Indignation. You’ll thank me later.
