[VIDEO] Andrew Breitbart Flashback: ‘Take on the Bullies on the Playground’

On a personal note, Andrew Breitbart is one of the reasons punditfromanotherplanet exists. I read his book, two or three years ago, and it ignited a series of events and discoveries that inspired and activated me–like a lot of people exposed to Andrew’s magnetic, generous personality–it’s not passive reading, it’s a call to join the revolution, and raise some hell. If you’ve not read it yet, it’s available as an ebook now, too.

From the book’s manic introduction, to its updated conclusion (to include the Weiner episode and crazy press conference) it’s a wild ride. He’d just taken down Anthony Weiner, and had to defend his own reputation against a breathtakingly vicious smear effort. Andrew emerged–with style–stronger and more victorious, principled, and fair, than any of his critics would have imagined.

A rich narrative of this adventure is archived here. Then, this morning, I stumbled on this link at Instapundit, to this video:

Sunday, October 27, 2013,  writes:

…may be the best interview of Andrew I’ve ever seen.

And it’s as relevant, if not more so, now as it was back then.

There’s so much in it, listen to it all.

At 8:45 Andrew describes highly-credentialed mainstream journalists as “the most arrogant bastards you could possibly meet in your entire life.” Sounds about right. Maybe understatement.

Two years later Andrew died.
