Andrew Breitbart was a political commentator who warned in 2011 of the Republican Party “If these guys don’t learn how to play the media ... we’re going to probably get a celebrity candidate.”[1]. In February 2011, he tweeted[2] “How prog-guru John Podesta isn't household name as world class underage sex slave op cover-upperer defending unspeakable dregs escapes me”[3]. Later in 2011 he exposed Anthony Weiner's sexting. He died suddenly in 2012. The newspaper he started was a solid backer of Donald Trump in the 2016 US election.

On May 27, 2011, Anthony Weiner used his public Twitter account to send a photo of his erect penis to a 21 year old woman. Andrew Breitbart publicised this on his BigGovernment website the following day, leading to denials by Weiner and renewed public allegations by Breitbart.[4] Weiner eventually admitted the truth of Briebart's allegations after further images emerged, stating that he was "deeply ashamed" of his "terrible judgment and actions", which he called "very dumb."[5]


On the night of February 29, 2012, Breitbart collapsed suddenly while walking in Brentwood, Los Angeles. He was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead just after midnight.[6][7] He was 43 years old. An autopsy by the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office showed that he had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, with focal coronary atherosclerosis,[8] and died of heart failure.[9][10][11]
