It is with great sadness that I must report of the untimely demise of Andrew Breitbart. A powerful internet and media activist who tirelessly upheld Conservative values, ideals and principles, Breitbart’s most memorable moment was arguably when he gave an impromptu press conference on the podium and microphone that then Congressman Anthony Weiner had set up, but had not yet used.
Breitbart was also one of the co-founders of the Huffington Post, which occurred before his switch from liberal to conservative. Here, he details his transformation from being a “default cultural lib” to staunch Conservatism.
His websites reported and confirmed his death:
The websites he founded ran a statement Thursday morning announcing that Breitbart, 43, died “unexpectedly from natural causes” in Los Angeles shortly after midnight. His attorney and editor-in-chief of those sites confirmed his death to Fox News.
“We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior,” the statement said. “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.”
