Book Description

Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way.

In RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on. Along the way, he details his early years, working with Matt Drudge, the Huffington Post, and so on, and how Breitbart developed his unique style of launching key websites to help get the word out to conservatives all over.

A rollicking and controversial read, Breitbart will certainly raise your blood pressure, one way or another.

Editorial Reviews


Righteous is three books in one, each self-contained. Together, they weave a narrative that will remind many readers of their own lives. Even if you don't share all of Andrew's political beliefs, you will find yourself identifying with at least some of his story and conclusions. The book is part biography, part history lesson, and part manifesto, and it flows with clarity of purpose from one page to the next. It subtly draws you into a narrative, strung through the whole book, where he meticulously makes the case against the media and pop culture, which, he argues, help spread and normalize the liberal agenda. He also explains how to combat that agenda. (The Daily Caller

Right smack in the middle of this volume is where Mr. Breitbart's narrative takes off like a rocket. The chapter "Breakthrough" is in and of itself well worth the price of "Righteous Indignation." (The Washington Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Walk Toward The Fire April 2, 2011
By Jaci
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you ever watch the news, listen to the radio or check the headlines on, you must read this book. There is a battle going on for the information gateway of our country: the news media complex.

And the great general leading the charge, the brilliant strategist who has been literally on the forefront of this fight and has seen it from the inside-out and the ground-up, who makes it possible for you and I to literally hear "the rest of the story".... is Andrew Breitbart.

Anything we know today, about the JournoList, about ACORN, about Pigford is directly because of Andrew Breitbart. (And if you don't know about any of the things I just mentioned, start researching, because this affects YOU)

"Righteous Indignation" is part memoir, part treatise, part history lesson. It begins with the infamous ACORN sting investigation, in which James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles went to multiple ACORN offices around the country and asked ACORN to help them find tax breaks for their brothel, in which they claimed to employ underage illegal immigrants. Yes, they explicitly stated that was their business - underage human trafficking.

And Breitbart dropped the videos, one by one. Aside from the moral repugnance of the actions of the ACORN offices, the bigger story was that ACORN was doing this using taxpayer dollars. Within weeks, Congress unanimously voted to defund one of the largest community activists groups in the country.

All because of some bloggers and a couple of kids with a camera.

The next part of the book details how Breitbart became the biggest New Media magnate of our day, the driving force behind the biggest news stories in the last 5 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars James Fitzgerald Jr April 3, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Well, I started the book yesterday and was up reading it until 2:30 AM. The book is good. I finished it this morning. What is captivating about the book is that you get to peek behind the curtain into the real life media and political battle for the heart and soul of America. Breitbart takes you on his journey. I get the sense that there are huge gaps in the journey and that there is a lot that he is not telling us. But what he does tell us is fascinating and very insightful. At his heart, Breitbart is a big picture strategist, a gutsy provocateur, and a new media entrepreneur. This is a very good thing. There are very few of those on the right. The right is usually reactionary, playing defense and fighting the last battle-not the next one. His book is a clarion call and he gives us his game plan. Read it if you are part of this huge middle-right nation that has grown weary of seeing the media trash all that is true, good and beautiful. Join Breitbart's army. Oh, and bring a recording device and/or cash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book about the Left Media Complex April 18, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I received this book on my Kindle on Friday, and finished today, Monday. I follow Breitbart and his Big websites, and all the controversies through the past few years, so I am already aware and loved hearing about it from the inside.

Especially interesting was how the ACORN exposé went down, as well as the Lewinsky story and Drudge. It is amazing how Clinton's indiscretions were morphed by the left media complex into the narrative that it was only sex, and then digging up affairs by Republicans to run interference for Clinton. You forget how it was sometimes.

As someone who also grew up in LA and was a default liberal in my 20s, returning to my family's conservative values as I got older, I can relate to Breitbart's story of finding himself politically, and the satisfaction he gets from attacking the left by going after the Old Media Complex.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put down! April 15, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Part auto-biography, part politics sprinkled with lots of laughs. This is one of the most entertaining books that I've read in years.
A great,easy read that's hard to put down.

Not just the same old Conservative opinion book that most would come to expect. Mr. Breitbart is truly a man on a mission, whose discovered his passion,and lives it. He has gone from one side of the political spectrum to the other, and experienced the different ideology's.

Andrew's humor actually makes the subjects of politics and media fun to read. Only wish it were longer.

The authors of a sci-fi webcomic sell a tee shirt with the declaration "Fools, I will destroy you all! (Ask me how.)" Staring like the subject of some monstrous experiment from the cover of Right(eous Indig)Nation, Andrew Breitbart declares that he will destroy the people who tried to make him in their image, and tells us how.

Born to conservative, apolitical parents, Breitbart was reared by the Political Left. In college he followed their plan. He partied, skipped class, and parroted what his teachers told him. When he realized he was in trouble, he asked for help. He was told--seriously--to spend a semester dropping acid in New York. He did.

At Tulane the Left taught him what they wanted him to know, showed him what they wanted him to see, gave him the Party Line that he should think. But Breitbart somehow retained a thread of sanity. When it came time to rejoin The World, he compared what The University had taught him to what he could see for himself in The World, and realized that the whole substance and foundation of his "liberal" education was a lie. A lie deliberate, malicifent, and malignant. He chose to choose, and chose to turn on his creators. And since the Mad Political Scientists of the Left had also taught him how they think, and how they persuade, and how they lie and inculcate lies, they gave him the means to do what they had never planned. They gave him the means to destroy them.

Righteous Indignation is part memoir, part manifesto, and part master plan for making good on his subtitle: "Excuse Me While I Save The World"

How does Breitbart plan to save the world? With the one thing the Left fears above all: the Truth. In "That Hideous Strength" C.S.

Agreed. I really do want to read this book, but I sure won't pay more for it on my Kindle than a hardcover version. And I don't buy hardcovers. So they won't be selling a book to me. Sorry Andrew. I was very interested in reading this.

The ACORN "lynching" is no reason to applaud Breitbart
Oh geez. HuffPo and MediaMatters. These are just not credible sources.

This is akin to asking you a question about Jewish theology and you providing a link to StormFront. Just not credible.
