Everyone's Life Has Moments When One's Moral Courage Is Tested.




Breitbart.com just failed one of those tests.

More people have resigned now in sympathy.

This is uncannily like the mass resignation at The New Republic a couple of years ago. What that left behind was a gaunt skeleton which has been traded around like NewsWeek was. It still exists, in a sense, but it isn't anything remotely like what it used to be.

I put it at even money that Breitbart is gone within a year, or equally unrecognizable. What it WON'T be is a political gadfly.

Andrew Breitbart must be rolling over in his grave.

2 It clearly is a matter of opinion. I, for one, think that Andrew would not have hired that entitled whiner in the first place. In addition, the site was going down the drain by becoming a GOPe mouthpiece. There was not dumb propaganda tune they didn't dance to recenly. And I'm sure the newly resigned were a part of it.

3 It's disheartening how many Conservative voices have jumped ship in this election.  I know a lot of people don't take Limbaugh seriously, but he consistently supported conservative candidates and has been vociferously opposed to the Republican party for years.  And even he spends all day defending and pumping up Trump lately.

4 And Pete, I don't know about Fields, but Shapiro was one of Breitbart's first hires.  He worked directly with Andrew and was trusted to speak *for* Andrew when he couldn't make an obligated appointment.
