Explosive Documentary 'Hating Breitbart' Hits Theaters Nationwide
NewsMax ^ | April 17, 2013 | Troy Anderson

Posted on 05/17/2013 12:46:15 PM PDT by justiceseeker93

An explosive, feature-length documentary hitting an expanded roster of theaters nationwide on May 17 offers a captivating look at the larger-than-life personality of the late Andrew Breitbart – a controversial new media pioneer whom the left vilified and the right hailed as an American hero.

Coming more than a year after the sudden and mysterious death of the crusading 43-year-old journalist, the film Hating Breitbart was initially screened in a few theaters in October shortly before the presidential election, but is expanding to 10 markets nationwide on Wednesday, along with the film’s simultaneous release on DVD and video-on-demand.

Today is the national release day for "Hating Breitbart."

This is a review from one month ago, but I hadn't heard of this film until today when Rush Limbaugh mentioned it on his show. Rush stated that Andrew had been a liberal youth who grew up in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles, but as a young adult started to change his world view after reading Rush's book, "The Way Things Ought to Be," which he picked up from his father-in-law, Orson Bean.

I'm putting this movie on my to-do list.

I had not heard from Orson Bean in decades. I only knew him as a “celebrity” bpanelist on “To Tell the Truth”, akind to other celebrity panelists who seemed to be celebrities only because they were panelists (e.g. Brett Sommers-Match Game, Arlene Frances-What’s My Line, J.P. Morgan-The Gong Show, etc.). He must have had talent, though, getting famous with a name like Orson Bean.

I heard Orson Bean about a month ago being interviewed on Dennis Miller’s nationally syndicated radio show.

The Rolling Stone article that came out mere days after Breitbart’s untimely passing, “Death of a Douche”, shows what the Left is all about. Breitbart, by all accounts, was a great husband and father, but his political beliefs meant that his death could and should be celebrated by the Left.

We recently saw the same with Margaret Thatcher’s passing. If you wanted a clear picture of the hate-filled, win at any cost mentality of the Left — celebrating the deaths of good people is telling of the Lefts’s personality.

Breitbart himself said some remarkably unkind things about Ted Kennedy shortly after his death.

Although I agree there is a good deal of difference between celebrating the death of good people and speaking the truth about dead bad people.

Great point. And when these sickos with the same mentality seek control of your health care and the capability of making life and death determinations with rationing, there is great reason to be alarmed.

He was fortunate in his enemies.

And I completely agree, the Kennedys were and are scum.

I was crazy about Breitbart. I miss him so much.

His movie is not playing anywhere near his home town of LA. :(

So glad I got to stand 2 feet from him as he spoke passionately, with Sarah Palin too.

So much energy! I was exhausted just talking to him.

ACORN’S Wade Rathke interviews Andrew Marcus
Hating Breibart·13 videos

Published on May 17, 2013

Hating Breitbart Director Andrew Marcus appears on the radio program of none other than Wade Rathke, founder of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). ACORN was the subject of undercover sting videos produced by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, which exposed systemic corruption at the organization. The videos were published by Andrew Breitbart and ultimately led to the destruction of the Organization.

From ACORN to Weinergate, HATING BREITBART tells the story of one man with a website who forever changed the media paradigm, upending the traditional press and changing the ground rules of political journalism. He opened the floodgates to an army of citizen journalists who used new media to completely rewrite the narrative. In the process, he repeatedly found himself the target of a media feeding frenzy as the old paradigm’s supporters pushed back.

Hating Breitbart is available on iTunes/Netflix/Amazon/On-Demand

I’m surprised it’s playing at the Plaza Theatre in Atlanta. The Plaza is located in very liberal Midtown. The audience should be interesting, not your typical suburban types. I’m planning to go this weekend.

Keep the link handy to Andrew Marcus’ website for “Hating Breitbart. More showings will be coming up in more locations.

Andrew Breitbart was a true warrior who took on the lying liberal media at every turn! My hubby and I were proud to be in his presence at CPAC events we attended.

Yes, Andrew died of a massive heart attack.

I learned from someone close to his family that Andrew did have a heart condition and was told by his doctor to slow down. Those two words were certainly not in Andrew's vocabulary or in his continued quest for the truth and unwavering effort to expose lies!

Thanks for the link (post # 22) to that audio of the interview of Andrew Marcus, director of "Hating Breitbart," by Wade Rathke, founder of ACORN.

Considering who they are, especially Breitbart's role in (supposedly) "taking down" ACORN, it was surprisingly cordial. I heard the whole thing I don't recall anything even resembling a sharp exchange between the two.

BTW, let's not presume that ACORN is really out of business. A few years ago, it was revealed that there were a bunch of different names of similar organizations with the same address as ACORN in New Orleans, so one can assume that ACORN is practically still operating with different names.

Don't know that for a fact, but it wouldn't be all that surprising.

Democrats have been siccing the IRS upon political opponents going as far back to Franklin D. Roosevelt and his administration. Roosevelt succeeded in getting Moses Annenberg, publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer, thrown into prison on purported IRS violations. There was widespread speculation that the motivation behind the prosecution of Annenberg was the paper's consistent criticism of Roosevelt's New Deal policies.

You're right.

But Obama's the first to take on average everyday citizens... civilians so to speak... people with a right to assemble. Even Nixon didn't have on this enemies list 'all liberal adults who care about politics'.

The closest example in our history is the Jim Crow South - where blacks had to past difficult tests to 'earn' the right to vote - in the same office where whites walked in and signed a card. That's what the IRS did...

The IRS made it impossible for conservative groups to qualify - while allowing liberal groups to 'sign a card'. It's the same evil - just a different time.

FDR also went after Andrew Mellon who the treasure secretary under Coolidge. Bad move , not only was Andrew rich ,but as a man who once headed the IRS he knew exactly what he was doing and FDR couldn’t touch him. Perhaps the signal FDR wanted to send was that nobody was immune from his tyranny.

I'm aware of FDR going after Andrew Mellon. I think the crux of that case was Mellon claiming deductions for charitable contributions to an art museum. The elderly Mellon won the case, but the strain of it was thought to be too much for him and he died shortly thereafter.

Mellon was not only the Treasury secretary under Coolidge but also under Harding before him and Hoover after him. He can be thought of as the father of what later become known as "supply side economics."
