Andrew Breitbart dead at 43
Conservative columnist and blogger Andrew Breitbart died early this morning of what his family is calling natural causes. Breitbart was walking after midnight in his neighborhood when he collapsed. Paramedics were called, but Breitbart could not be resuscitated.
Breitbart was a controversial figure known for stretching the truth or even lying in his stories. So much so, that even when he broke an actual story, like Anthony Weiner's use of Twitter to send pictures of himself in underwear to young women, he was not believed initially.
Breitbart is survived by his wife and four children.
