Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart passed away today. The AP reports that Breitbart collapsed while walking near his home in the Brentwood neighborhood. Someone called paramedics who tried to revive him, unsuccessfully.
Breitbart was a protegé of blogger Matt Drudge before Drudge introduced him to Arianna Huffington. Breitbart would later go on to help Huffington launch her eponymous website, before she became a liberal. Today, Matt Drudge posted a banner announcement on his own site, The Drudge Report. The message read:
DEAR READER: In the first decade of the DRUDGEREPORT Andrew Breitbart was a constant source of energy, passion and commitment. We shared a love of headlines, a love of the news, an excitement about what's happening. I don't think there was a single day during that time when we did not flash each other or laugh with each other, or challenge each other. I still see him in my mind's eye in Venice Beach, the sunny day I met him. He was in his mid 20's. It was all there. He had a wonderful, loving family and we all feel great sadness for them today...
