The Los Angeles Times reported on the memorial for Andrew Breitbart at AFP's Right Online conference. The conference was held at the (non-unionized) Ventian hotel in Las Vegas this past weekend.
Included in the write up are quotes from Andrew's closest friends and associates:
“We often don’t know what Andrew would have done,” said Breitbart News Editor in Chief Joel Pollak ...“Sometimes Andrew didn’t know what Andrew would do.”
"If you’re not here to honor a man, we got a hallway out there,” yelled tea party activist and CNN contributor Dana Loesch, editor in chief of Breitbart.com's Big Journalism. “Everybody shut the hell up for a second … and let’s remember a great man.”
“Breitbart did not start the fight,” said Larry O’Connor, editor in chief of BreitbartTV. “It’s been said a lot that Breitbart was a fighter. And it’s true, he was a fighter. But don’t forget something. Breitbart did not start the fight. Breitbart fought back. And this fight started decades ago. Ask Robert Bork.”
“I don’t know anyone else who would wear Rollerblades to an Occupy parade,” said Ben Shapiro
“Andrew was the first middle-class media mogul,” said Breitbart News Managing Editor Alex Marlow.
"He had so much venom and hate spewed on him, and false charges of racism, sexism, being crazy, being hateful, being homophobic – none of it true,” [Larry] Solov said. “People started to think, hey, he must like being hated. No, Andrew did not like being hated. Nobody likes being hated. He liked protecting people. He loved absorbing the hate so that others didn’t have to."
