A thorn in the mainstream media's side!!!!
12 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary will probably not convert anyone who disagreed with Andrew Breitbart before. It is certainly a film that is in favor of what he was doing before he died in 2012. I know that this documentary didn't get any attention in the mainstream press because it clearly is an indict6ment on their absolute disdain for anything that doesn't move their agenda forward. I used to think that the media had a left wing bias, but was generally fair. In the past 20 years I have certainly lost that sentiment. Andrew Breitbart's work was more about getting in the face of the media and challenging them about their bias. Of course they hated him for that, denigrating him as not being a journalist. Why? Because he was championing truth. He certainly knew what he was doing, yes he was brazen, a trouble maker, so what? Again if he were on the left he would be hailed as a HERO!!!! He would be celebrated as a courageous truth seeker, a watchdog for the people. He would be bigger than Michael Moore. Michael Moore has made millions of dollars making opinion pieces calling them documentaries and the media by and large LOVE HIM!!! When Fahrenheit 9/11 came out they championed him to no end, the film is the highest grossing documentary ever. Let's face it, Moore is a talented film maker and knows his audience. Does it matter that most of what he espouses in his films has been dis-proved? Not to the media at large, he gets a pass because his politics are in line with theirs.

The truth is that the media at large has done a disservice to this country for choosing to be very partisan. They have chosen a side for the most part and want the general public to buy the narrative that they are selling. He fully admitted he was a conservative and that he wanted to expose the left's war on the Tea Party. The media at large created the narrative that they were by and large a bunch on racists. The film deals with the incident in Washington DC where there was a protest against Obamacare and some African American congress members were walking and supposedly heard the N word screamed at them 15 times. The allegations were picked up bey the mainstream media and they ran with the story. Breitbart offered a reward for proof that the N word was shouted one time. His argument was that with all of the media that was there, people with their cell phone cameras, why wasn't there any video of the so called people that screamed the racial slur? I would think that if that existed it would have come out. You think MSNBC would have resisted in airing that video? I think not. At one point there was a video that was being run of on major news sources of someone carrying rifle at a Tea Party rally, again the media wanting to portray these rallies as being full of gun touting racists. The problem was that they had not shown the man's face. Turns out it was an African American carrying that rifle at the rally. But of course didn't fit the narrative, so they tweaked the image to fit what they wanted us to see. That should make anyone furious, to be lied to like that. No matter what side of the political spectrum you are. The so called journalists in the mainstream media hated Andrew Breitbart because he was actually doing the job that they were supposed to do, to inform.

You may not agree with Breitbarts tactics, but he exposed the media as more than just having a bias. They are actively championing people and causes that fit with their ideology. You may not agree with all of Breitbart's politics and tactics, but it is clear that he shined a light on how the media is aiding in further dividing this country.

Good for him.
