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.

I am in shock! AB was a young man and one of our best and strongest voices. Prayers up!
Is this real?
Is this for real!???
No way. Nothing on Breitbart or his friend Drudge’s web site.
Rest in Peace defender of liberty.
Unbelievable, tragic. A great loss.
Say it isn’t so.....sigh...he will be missed
Natural causes? Nobody has died in the US from “natural causes” since the 1950’s, when that was no longer accepted on death certificates. I’m curious as to “what” natural cause was the cause of his death.
I always wonder why at least ONE of the barbara boxers or barney franks of the world don’t just die early, like happens occasionally to normal people.

If it's true it's mighty Ironic that he was about to drop a huge bomb regarding Obama's college days....
He is the one voice conservatives could least afford to lose right now. I am shocked and horrified.
I smell a hoax...or left wing hackers
I don’t understand how a 42 year old can die of natural causes. This is horrible.
Too bad he passed. He’ll be missed. RIP
Mr. Breitbart was a tremendous force for good and a beacon of TRUTH and LIGHT in the dark days in which we live. His legacy and contributions to a free and honest media will live on, but he will be missed. Our condolences to the Breitbart family, may the God of all comfort, greatly comfort you in your time of loss.
If you click on http://bighollywood.breitbart.com it’s on the main page.
So it’s real.
RIP Andrew Breitbart.
The “natural causes” part is the big giveaway that this is fake.
I'll hold on to hope for just a bit longer.
Oh No. So sad. Prayers to his family. I always enjoyed hearing him speak. He was a true patriot. How sad.
Haven’t seen this anywhere else and I’ve read four newspapers and Yahoo already this morning.
I am stunned. Yet I can’t find anything besides this news item. Strange.
If it’s true, I am very disheartened and sad. He is one of the fearless ones.
I sure as hell hope so. Nothing shows on any other site about this.
He was just on a local radio show this week and he sounded fine.
So far this is the only link that has this information. Nothing on twitter, nothing on google news, or anything. So, I’m curious if this is a prank.
Yes, he said he had videos at CPAC.
It’s not on Wiki yet................
Breitbart had a lot of enemies on the left. He passed last night of so called natural causes. One would suggest an in depth investigation. He was a fighter may God rest his soul.
We’ve lost an incredibly important piece from our side of the chess board.
Real shocker...I wouldn’t believe it except it is on his web site. Very low key.
Very suspicious. I think his site has been hacked.
Already, I'm highly suspicious. How does someone aged 43 die "unexpectedly" of "natural causes?"
His courageous example will be sorely missed.
The devil is happy this morning.
—I dont understand how a 42 year old can die of natural causes. This is horrible.—
He can’t. The term is not used any more as a cause of death. That is one reason this smacks of hoax.
It looks like it was only reported 10mins ago
That was my reaction too.
This is totally unexpected. Wow.
Any chance of him being taken out by unnatural causes?
>> I dont understand how a 42 year old can die of natural causes.
It’s rare in someone that young, but it *can* happen. Example: ruptured brain, abdominal, or thoracic aneurysm. Death can follow within minutes, and there are often no warning signs beforehand.
This is devastating. Sooo young. RIP Mr. Breitbart :(
Wow, what a shocker. Out of the blue. We lost one of our best journalistic warriors.
Looks authentic to me. See too http://www.breitbart.tv/in-memoriam-andrew-breitbart-1969-2012/
Its on his own site unless someone hacked it
FOX hasn’t mentioned this yet.
ABCNNBCBS would not care if he died and probably wouldn’t report on it if he did..............
Stunned, simply stunned. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
We’ll continue the fight, Andrew, you rest now in peace.
