Listening to Fingers Malloy on FTR Radio last night, while he was talking to a variety of people about the life and work of Andrew Breitbart, it was revealed that Breitbart was on the verge of consolidating and reconfiguring the entire Bigs catalog into one massive web presence that would be by far the most impressive, state-of-the-art news outlet on the right, rolling out this Sunday. Breitbart and company had apparently been working on this project for the past 3 years, and among the things that Bannon mentioned was that they were hoping to scoop up all the best and the brightest young online presences to be a part of their enterprise. So, if you fit that description, get your writing samples in order.
Claudia Rosett had expressed concern over whether or not the videos that Breitbart had promised to release showing Obama from his college days were still going to appear, and yesterday Bannon and other Breitbart insiders assured everyone that they would be released on schedule:
On his program Thursday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke with Steve Bannon (producer of The Undefeated, among various other films) about a series of tapes Andrew Breitbart claimed to have about Barack Obama. Breitbart mentioned the tapes during his recent CPAC speech, sharing that “[w]e are going to vet [Barack Obama] from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”
Bannon confirmed that there exists a series of tapes taken during Obama’s time at Harvard, which will be publicly released “in a week or two.” Breitbart has been “very systematic about going through this thing,” Bannon added.
Additionally, the late activist / media personality had been working around the clock on a new website slated to be launched this weekend.
A good deal of paranoia was flung around concerning Andrew’s passing, but on PJTV Bill Whittle leapt to stifle the conspiracy mongering:
Andrew admired Bill a lot.
