Last night I attended a private screening of the documentary “Hating Breitbart,” hosted by filmmaker Andrew Marcus. Bloggers, writers, and citizen journalists flew in from across the country to pay tribute to a legend. It was bittersweet to see old friends and colleagues, wonderful and sad. Urban Infidel was there, Pamela Hall, Jim Hoft, Rebel Pundit, IOTW, James Taranto, Karol S (Alarming News), Toots Sweet, Jeannie DiCarlo, and so many others.
The movie was a shock to the system. We all know how fearless and magnificent Breitbart was, but to ride shotgun and be there with him was overwhelming. The movie is brilliant. I could not move after the credits ran. Kudos to filmmakers Andrew Marcus, Evan Coyne Maloney, and Maura Flynn.
Our loss profound. Unrecoverable.Urban Infidel has great coverage and videos here:
I was very honored to attend a private screening tonight of the phenomenal new documentary film, Hating Breitbart. Directed by Andrew Marcus and produced by Maura Flynn and Evan Coyne Maloney, Hating Breitbart is like being in the front seat of a race car at the Indy 500 with Andrew Breibart at the wheel. I love documentaries and this one really delivers. Seeing Andrew on the big screen, bigger than life and taking no prisoners it almost felt like he was still here. The film crew follows Breitbart through Tea Party gatherings, various appearances at CPAC and SRLC, a pro-Harry Reid demonstration in Nevada, and his epic battle with the leftwing media, who are featured throughout the film. How they hated him! There are clips and interviews with vile leftist media types like Max Blumenthal, Chris Hayes and others of their ilk from The New York Times, Huffington Post and the Columbia School of Journalism. I loved the film. I hope you get to see it. It was funny, inspiring, depressing, exhilarating and infuriating.
UPDATE: Pamela Hall has some great shots here:
