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

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
