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.

Please someone say it isn’t true.
Died of “obama natural causes’?
—Andrew Breitbart is irreplaceable.—
The only irreplaceable man that ever lived was hung on a cross. In fact, Andrew’s death could actually spark more “good men” to action. e.g. it’s not as if he had those Obama college videos in a secret hole that only he knew about.
Nothing on our local (conservative talk) radio station. I guess I’m holding out for a Twainian moment.
They say he died of natural causes.
What’s natural about dieing at 43?
That’s terrible, hopefully someone will step in and fill the void.
I hope those videos of Obama he was going to release are in a good safe place.
He was on TV and radio several times last week.
I am NOT believing this for a minute (the ‘natural causes’ part)
43 years old. The first time I saw him at length was the last CPAC speech, I thought he was great, a level of sincerity and honest passion very few have.
As am I, We have lost a great representative and trooper for our side!
andrew breitbart was to vet hussein obama this summer! How can they say so quickly “natural causes”????
Holy cow! If this is true, RIP, Andrew.
(Where are those tapes?!)
Actually, it's a perfectly reasonable term, not for the official cause of death from a coroner, but for a news story in order to distinguish it from some kind of accident or foul play. It's just a general description like "died in a boating accident" or "was killed by a mugger". Those aren't an official COD either. It just means that it was something organic and medical. Like a heart attack or aneurysm or such.
Paging Vince Foster.....please pick up the white courtesy phone.....
If this is true it is terribly sad. Godspeed Mr. Breitbart.
I think it was Tuesday. God, this is sad.
A coronary event at his age absent underlying health issues is extremely rare. Given the powerful people that Breitbart routinely angered, one might be forgiven for being suspicious.
Only via the link to Big Hollywood. Has anyone seen anything beyond it?
Drudge now linking to Big Hollywood too.
What horrible news! Andrew, you were one of my heroes. Rest in peace, and condolences to all friends and family.
