Storyline

Having followed Andrew Breitbart since the birth of the Tea Party movement in 2009, the filmmakers got behind the scenes access to Andrew Breitbart and the many media controversies in which he was a key player. From the ACORN take-down to Congressman Anthony Weiner's crotch shot Twitter scandal, Hating Breitbart tells the amazing story of how one man conquered and helped to shape the world of new media as we know it today. Written by Beverly Zaslow

Just the Tea Party sucking itself off again
4 November 2014 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

It hardly needs to be said that this "documentary" is just the right-wing infotainment industry giving itself another propaganda hand job.

It does its best to ignore the fact that Breitbart was guilty of the very thing he claimed to be trying to root out: extreme media bias; says nothing about his penchant for ridiculous conspiracy theories or the many times he and his stooge James O'Keefe were caught lying or falsifying evidence against the left, much less how the very last moments of his life were were spent trying to fabricate evidence that the Occupy Wall Street protesters were all rapists.

Instead, the thesis is all about how Andrew Breitbart did not deserve to be hated. Which is about as accurate as their decision to call the Sarah Palin documentary "Undefeated." Don't indulge your curiosity by watching this movie. Look at what he actually said, did, and stood for on Wikipedia instead, and you'll be incredibly glad Andrew Breitbart is dead too.
