LOS ANGELES, March 1 (UPI) -- Blogger, TV commentator and author Andrew Breitbart has died of natural causes in Los Angeles, his Web site Big Hollywood announced Thursday. He was 43.

Breitbart contributed columns to The Washington Times, was a frequent guest on Fox News programs and was a former editor for the Drudge Report.

In addition to BigHollywood.com, he ran the Web sites Breitbart.com, BigGovernment.com, BigJournalism.com and BigPeace.com. He also appeared on the TV panel programs "Real Time with Bill Maher" and "Dennis Miller."

"With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart," a statement from Big Hollywood said Thursday.

"Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles," the statement read. "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."

He is survived by his wife Susie Bean and their four children.

I told him that they were going to kill him.

I believe they did. Rush had better get a food taster and stay out of crowds. Roger Ailes and Murdock also best be on the lookout. The administration has openly called them enemies.

When people can not be silenced with the law, or with threats, or IRS “investigations”, the Marxists always resort to murder. There are “accidents”; and “natural causes” to the free press and to judges that don’t follow the party line.

Yeah, I think there is a conspiracy here.

It's very suspicious.

Yes, unfortunately one can't help wondering if foul play was in motion here....though he did apparently have heart problems and an attack would take him down as reported.

However given his high profile stands...ya can't hep but wonder.

Very sad....left four kids...I'm sure their hearts are broken this day.

Here’s hoping that all of his material was safeguarded with trustworthy conservative patriots.

No doubt those he opposed will be wondering this as well...let them stew good and hard!
