Conservative Journalist Andrew Breitbart Dead at 43

Andrew Breitbart, the fiery conservative who recently threatened to “vet” the 44th Commander-in-Chief, died earlier this morning in Los Angeles. It has been reported that the 43-year-old Internet entrepreneur/publisher passed away from natural causes, according to an obituary posted on Big Journalism, one of Breitbart’s websites.

The outspoken and controversial head of the Breitbart Media Network had his death confirmed by Joe Pollak, the Editor-in-Chief at Breitbart.com. “With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart,” Larry Solov wrote on Big Hollywood, another off-shoot of Breitbart Media Network. “We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.”

Will Breitbart’s untimely passing have any effect on the antagonistic tone pundits and politicians from both sides of the aisle use to address each other? Also, will those college tapes of President Obama ever see the light of day now?
