  • Franklin Center Remembers 'Warrior' Andrew Breitbart

    The state-based journalism organization the Franklin Center on Thursday released its own tribute to the late conservative activist and new media pioneer Andrew Breitbart.

    The video, titled “Warrior,” gathers some of Breitbart’s more powerful moments, including a clip from an interview with our own Rob Bluey.

    Heritage President Ed Feulner remembered Breitbart in a post of his own yesterday. “We all mourn Andrew today, but we can’t allow our sorrow to consume us,” Feulner wrote. “The challenge for us, for all conservatives, is to react to today’s sad event by following his example, by picking up the sword that lies on the ground before us.”

    Other Heritage staffers also shared their memories of Andrew, and discussed his impact on them personally and on the conservative movement.

    We all mourn the loss of a truly great man and an inspirational figure. Our deepest condolences go out to Andrew’s wife and his four children.

      Excellent tribute to the integrity, strength, courage and bravery of one warrior of a man, who's inspiration is with thousands if not millions more!

      "A truly great man and an inspirational figure"? The torrent of vitriol from his detractors is untimely and thus unseemly. But your false lionization is equally repugnant. Can you just say, a man held fast to his beliefs? Since when does Heritage stand so firmly on the Drudge wing of the party? Is your Rush obit call him clean-living, a good husband and a friend to all mankind?
