Andrew Breitbart may no longer be with us, but his film legacy has yet to be written.The Hollywood Reporter says two films featuring Breitbart are currently in production and could allow the late Internet publisher to have the last word on media bias during this critical election year.
The filmmakers of both movies are vague about their distribution and marketing plans, no doubt mindful that their efforts could be perceived as callous attempts to profit from tragedy. Therefore, it’s difficult to predict which movie will hit screens first.
The first one conceived, though, is called “Hating Breitbart,” which began two-and-a-half years ago when a camera crew started shadowing their subject at events like Tea Party rallies, where he’d whip like-minded activists into a frenzy with his fiery oratory, as well as Occupy Wall Street protests, where he’d elicit – appropriately, given the title of the film – tremendously hateful responses to his mere presence.

Saul Alinsky Love Song
So, what’s in the play? It truly is a love song to Alinsky. In the first few minutes of the play, Alinsky plays Moses – yes, the Biblical Moses – talking to God. The play glorifies Alinsky stealing food from restaurants and organizing others to do the same, explaining, “I saw it as a practical use of social ecology: you had members of the intellectual community, the hope of the future, eating regularly for six months, staying alive till they could make their contributions to society.”
In an introspective moment, Alinsky rips America: “My country … ‘tis of whatthehell / And justice up a tree … How much can you sell / What’s in it for me.” He grins about manipulating the Christian community to back his programs. He talks in glowing terms about engaging in Chicago politics with former Mayor Kelly. He rips the McCarthy committee, mocking, “Everyone was there, when you think back – Cotton Mather, Hester Prynn, Anne Hutchinson, Tom Paine, Tom Jefferson … Brandeis, Holmes … Gene Debs and the socialists … Huey Long … Imperial Wizards of all stripes … Father Coughlin and his money machine … Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd … and a kicking chorus of sterilized reactionaries singing O Come, All Ye Faithful …”

Andrew was controversial and loved it.
He was adopted by wealthy Jewish parents and at one point lived in Venice Italy where he met his wife. They returned to the states and were penniless for a while and then he started writing for Drudge Report for no salary. They thought he had talent. As said before he also helped to build Huffington Post when it was a startup.
He was walking home near his Brentwood home when he collapsed. His neighbors saw him collapse and called 911. He was taken to UCLA Medical Center where MJ was taken and pronounced dead.
He died of a massive heart attack. Andrew had heart problems in the past. I read that he was not into the lib healthy diet and exercise propaganda but believed in eating, drinking and getting merry on his wealth.
So long Andrew. He was 43.

A statement posted on his website said that Breitbart died “unexpectedly from natural causes” this morning.
The following statement was posted on Breitbart’s website today:
“With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.
We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

I gotta qualify this post by saying I did not look at Anthony’s weiner, no plan to. But the case is really got the buzz off the hook. I am not even positive there is a weiner at the end of the link but you can see for yourself and let me know LOL.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/08/anthony-weiner-penis-photo_n_873182.html you can follow the links if you choose and find the photo. I went to the link but it had a warning that it might be an offensive photo so I did not look. But here’s the deal:
Opie wrote in a tweet, which included a link to the photo, “Opie’d eye – this is a pic from @anthonycumia phone of the infamous weiner.” He subsequently saidon the social media platform, “Lots of you confused how the pic got out there. Myself and Anthony will explain in a bit right here on Twitter.”
Prominent conservative Andrew Breitbart showed two radio hosts what is likely the X-rated photograph of Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) he signaled he had in his possession earlier this week.
After Sirius XM’s Opie and Anthony were shown the picture, they subsequently leaked it into the public eye on Twitter.

Folks the “battle of the bulge” has not been won yet. My take: I think it’s Weiner’s weiner and body in the tweet, that’s clear so far. What’s not clear is how it got out of Weiner’s control. Is hacking a crime? If so then media are asking the question why did you not report it?
What’s not clear is why Weiner won’t come clean about how it got out of his control because clearly it’s he in his gray boxer shorts and engorged phallus. That is not a crime and I don’t think he needs to resign or anything. It’s unseemly to be caught in such an unneeded summer scandal. The magical media tour is not helping the member of congress either. He should shut up or tell the truth.
Ooh this is juicy Jewish gossip where one Jewish rep Cong. Weiner and his own twitter account have gotten out of hand. Another Jew who was following Weiner or his tweets and then Andrew Breitbart who broke the story that was retweeted to him. He did not hack or find the tweet but he did break or publish it on his website Big Breitbart or big something.
It was late Friday night when a Twitter user named “Patriotusa76” retweeted a message from Weiner’s official account that seemed to link to a picture of a man’s underwear with an erection. The tweet from Weiner’s account was directed to the student. Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government site quickly jumped in, with Breitbart himself taking to Twitter to demand that Weiner either confirm or deny that he’d sent the photo himself. “We have much more,” Breitbart wrote.
Weiner, who has since retained a lawyer, says his account was hacked. He tweeted on Saturday that his Facebook page had been hacked too. The student to whom the image was supposedly sent issued a detailed statement to the New York Daily News, denying that she’s ever met or had any involvement with Weiner. “There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself,” she wrote, “including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me.” source: war room at Salon the first link below.
Anyway the question is was this a hack job or was it a prank by facebook and twitter. Breitbart thinks a full investigation should be made. The woman who received it was a young black girl. The dirt goes that Congressman Weiner is supposed to be into really, really young gals.
I missed it maybe you did.

Here’s the latest “air kissing” from Andrew Breitbart. I think he meant “ass kissing!” LOL
For a guy who in one tweet called an employee from the liberal group Media Matters for America an “underage sex-trafficking apologist” and in another a “[hate] crime fetishist,” that’s really saying something.
Breitbart has reason to be nice — he used the money he earned while helping launch the Huffington Post six years ago to start his own media company. The cash he made from the Huffington Post provided the seed money for Breitbart.com, and later the proliferation of “Big” sites that have made Breitbart a simultaneously infamous and famous household name among political observers. But without Huffington, that may never have been possible, and Breitbart says he’s more than grateful.
“She and I have one of the great air kiss relationships that America has ever known,” Breitbart said during a recent radio interview. “I’m glad that she did well for herself.”
