In footage that came to light as a part of the 2012 documentary ‘Hating Breitbart,’ the Breitbart website, now Breitbart News, co-founder, Andrew Breitbart explains that his goal is to destroy the old media guard, specifically naming CNN and the New York Times, and others for democracy to happen.
It’s a very good business model, he joked.
The media has chosen not to be “better citizens”, he said. From their destruction, would “come something better.”
“Because nothing could be better than a group of people that collectively sneer, and think it’s an obvious joke that when people want to have redress for their grievances, they are called tea baggers and everybody has a great laugh at it, that we have to defend ourselves for having this conversation is despicable from people who grant people like Hugo Chavez a place to have a conversation.” He highlighted the fact that we [right-wing] are called the worst people in the world, yet al Qaeda is granted civil liberties, Ahmadinejad is granted the ability to speak at the United Nations.”
“The media class is the wall that we have to climb over in order for our voices to be heard,” he said. “Once our voices are heard, then Democracy will happen.”
He is sorely missed.
