I Went Looking for Breitbart.com

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 2:26 pm



And found this:

It’s obviously a hiccup as they are launching a new look for the site — which is happening any moment now, and which I hear is fantastic.

Still. The irony is not lost on me.

UPDATE: I’m told we’ll see the new site within the next hour. They’ve really talked it up, so I’m excited.

UPDATE x2: Apparently this is one of those sites where you need the “www” in front of the name, narciso points out.

I can at least reach the site now, but it’s the old version. Again, sometime in the next hour we should see it.

UPDATE x3: The new site is up. Looks nice.

  2. Had it open, (looked new to me but I’m not there daily), then as I was reading at links it came apart.

  3. it appears that America has a boundless appetite for anti-capitalist propaganda from universal studios

    oh it has that taylor swift

    she’s sluttier than a box of flukes I think

  4. Thanks, narciso.

    Still the old version. Give them another hour, I’m told by an insider.

  5. Always trust content from Patterico!

    I am excited to see what the new site is like. I remember seeing him somewhere saying that “they needed to a way to put all the sites together” or close to that.

  8. Patterico, I posted the comment last night, but since this post is newer (shorter), and you don’t seem big into Twitter, I wanted, again to thank you for your Breitbart post of yesterday (the one citing Ace. I only met the guy once (at CPAC), but I feel like a close family member has been taken from me. He was such an inspiration. But I’m confident that people like you (and, hopefully, me) can not only carry on what Breitbart started, but multiply his efforts.

    Just so sad…

  9. Just watched Whittle’s eulogy, I’m kinda thinking AB was a hero.

  10. The last time the death of a cultural figure whom I did not know bummed me out this bad was when Zappa died, and we knew he was going for a while. RIP AB
    May his impact be felt in 11/12 and beyond.

    Dave (in MA) (d5c4be)

  11. Zappa’s not dead, man.

    I’m listening to him sing about Hungry Freaks, Daddy as we speak.

    Dave Surls (46b08c)

  12. for me, it redirected me to breitbart’s main site, for like an hour. now it is doing it again.

    for my money i think it will be a new venture by the spirit of Breitbart himself. Called “Big Heaven.”

    (yes, i have a messed up sense of humor sometimes.)

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  13. I want to get this on velvet.

    Dave (in MA) (d5c4be)

  14. it was up for a second, and then it crashed.

    and when i did get it up, i couldn’t see all the images.

    Aaron Worthing (73a7ea)

  15. The site seems to be having some problems. I was able to access through Dave’s link, but had trouble in reconnecting.

    Nonetheless, I’m sure those problems will be worked out.

    The only other thing I want to say is Breitbart has given us the mission and the vision. It’s up to us to make a fair and legal vote to come true.

    Forget all the hype and distractions regardless of the candidate. It’s the least we can do.

  16. It’s probably a technical issue but I also wouldn’t be surprised if someone tried a DDoS attack.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  17. The new Breitbart website seems to be up now.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  18. I think this is a typical internet issue when the DNS servers have to propagate a new IP for a website.

    But maybe it was something else.

    DRJ’s right… it’s up now. I didn’t expect a column by Breitbart. I think this website will prove important over the next few months. All the vetting that has occurred in the GOP primary seems very healthy to me (though extreme partisans resent it). It’s going to be good seeing Obama finally be vetted, which the democrats failed to do, as did the MSM.

  19. Looks like ‘blood libel’ 2, and an incitement to maim or kill;

  20. Dustin:

    It’s going to be good seeing Obama finally be vetted, which the democrats failed to do, as did the MSM.

    Absolutely. I’m glad there are people at Breitbart.com who are willing to continue Andrew Breitbart’s vision.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  21. “I think this is a typical internet issue when the DNS servers have to propagate a new IP for a website.”

    That’s right. It can take hours for a new IP address to propagate through all the DNS servers.

    And it can take hours for the new pages to get cached on the many servers that cache frequently-used pages.

    Excitable Andrew (49d034)

  22. The site looks good. Idk if I am being pessimistic or what but idk if “the vetting” is going to do anything. Anyone who has paid attention knows all this about him. The media is going to pretend they already reported on this and say its probably just racism. Rinse and repeat.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  23. They may try to ignore the story but it’s harder to ignore videos.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  24. Yeah, I usually feel exactly the same way Noodles does. And sure, anyone who takes initiative to learn about Obama knew enough before Nov 2008.

    But Breitbart was the man. He somehow could make this work. I think his main skill was people, and he brought a lot of very smart people together who know how to get attention.

    Whatever this video puts out there… I bet they roll it out carefully. It will be both fun and effective.

    And one thing all three of the GOP candidates are familiar with now is how to use this kind of information to wage a good ad campaign.

    It’s such a shame this will be Brietbart’s last direct effort, but if I have a tenth as much positive impact on our country I’ll die a very happy man.

    Dustin (401f3a)

  25. Videos will be powerful, no doubt. However, we still live in a world where Jack Cashill and Christopher Andersen have pretty much proven that Bill Ayers ghost or at least co-wrote Dreams and only hard-core right leaning news junkies know this.

    How is that possible? Idk, but it is sickening.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  26. Someone tell them to change /American’s who don’t hate her/ to /Americans who don’t hate her/ , please.

    htom (412a17)

  27. Guess what? Andrew Breitbart isn’t gone; he’s multiplied. There’s about 40 of him here at Yankee Doodle’s. The theme: We can’t just passively wait for someone else to take up the cause of honesty in media and society. We have to do it ourselves.

    We are Andrew Breitbart.

  28. what group is going to sponser the yearly “Breitbart Award” for coverage of an important story ignored by the MSM?

    MD in Philly (3d3f72)

  29. Something like this, should be in order, although Andrew had a much broader portfolio;

  30. WAABN.

    Ag80 (b0b671)

  31. It is weird that his name there is Baraka. Of course Obama has had many names in his life.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  32. Great idea, MD!

    The Breitbart Prize. I wouldn’t be surprised if his organization comes out with one. They should.

    Dustin (401f3a)

  33. Breitbart TV editor in chief Larry O’Connor was on the John Gambling show on WOR 710Am shortly before 10 am this morning (Monday, March 5, 2012) New York time, near the conclusion of his show.

    Actually taht should be breitbart.tv It seems to be the same thing as breitbart.com

    The Breitbart site is being relaunched. It is therefore completely revamped. This was Andrew Breitbart’s last project. It contains his last article.

    It’s just about four years since he made his first hire in his basement. There are about 20 people working there now. (or is that 20 important people?

    In the last six months he’s been asking all of his people to get out in front – get their names known.

    They were mourning last week, so they didn’t get ahead of the story and didn’t stop all of taht speculation. But the people who really knew Breitbart weren’t saying certain things. They called them up.

    For business reasons alone maybe there was too much fo a mystique about the Obama tape – nothing could live up to it. But what Breitbart wanted to do was being the vetting of Barack Obama which hadn’t been in 2008. (You know, people he knew classes he attended, what ideology he was being exposed to etc)

    Breitbart never gave them a drop-dead datwe for releasing the video, and they disagree among themselves as to what to do. They are trying to vet everything in the tape – explain all the names mentioned in the tape etc. So that takes time. They want to be sure to be accurate.

    There will not be another Breitbart. (no exact successor) When it comes to the work, there were things that they used to say: That’s a Breitbart thing. For example, his column.

    There were a whole bunch of things that only Andrew Breitbart used to do.

  34. I remember seeing him somewhere saying that “they needed to a way to put all the sites together” or close to that.

    Big Hollywood Big Government Big Journalism Big Peace Breitbart TV

    http://www.breitbart.com/breitbart-tv/ now has:

    BIBI TO BARACK: WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO STRIKE

    Obama actually concedes this. He’s trying to talk Israel out of it by showing him a military plan and arguing how mnuch better the U.S. could do it.

    Obama’s plan would amount almost to a war against Iran. The first step, as always now when the U>S. starts a war, would be to take out Iran’s air defenses and its missiles. It would take a at least a week till they got around to attacking other things.

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  35. Obama is basically trading a virtual certainty of stopping Iran’s atomic bomb project, for

    1) a high probability of doing that,

    2) a few months of peace, and

    3) the chance that Iran will give in without a fight after experiencing steadily worsening sanctions.

    By giving in he means full inspections that would satisfy everyone. Not just silently stopping, or stopping just short of preparing a nuclear bomb test..

    There is also:

    1) The risk that Iran might decide to strike first, and

    2) The risk that while now there wouldn’t be retaliation and a wider war but later there would be.

    A) Egypt is not now allied with Iran but after June or so it might be.

    B) Hamas (in Gaza) is allied with Egypt or the Moslem Brotherhood and not with Syria any more.

    C) Syria is in turmoil. Its army cannot deal with any distractions.

    D) Hezbollah needs to maintain its army to intervene in Syria.

    E) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is exerting greater control of Iran, but now, in March, more moderate Iranians with saner heads, like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, would like, for instance, at least to test out an atomic bomb before using it, or avoid trying to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier, have not yet been purged.

    Ahmadinejad is not, as Newt Gingrich mistakenly said, the dictator of Iran, but he’s on his way to being purged. And if Khamenei wants to purge Ahmadinejad, what does that suggest about his possible military intentions?? Can you be sure thjis is just a power struggle over money or something?

    Israel does not want to wait past the point where they would be able to take care of it themselves, or at least make a jab at that.

    Obama’s attack, which might possibly end up being a follow-up attack, but he doesn’t want that, would be much more devastating and wouldn’t be limited to the nuclear program – in fact it wouldn’t start with that at all.

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  36. This is the time, this is the hour.

    An attack could be much more destabilizing later.

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  37. * saner heads, like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who would like, for instance, at least to test out an atomic bomb before using it, or avoid trying to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier, have not yet been purged.

    Now this is a bit of a guess, but saying you know nothing is a worse guess.

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  38. Ahmandinejad is a part of the Hojatieeh, the chiliastic splinter movement that wants to bring
    about the 12th Imam

    narciso (87e966)

  39. Yeah, mutually assured destruction means a completely different thing to him than it does to you and me.

    If Obama takes this issue seriously and actually fixes it, he will reap tremendous political rewards. And frankly… he should.

    Dustin (401f3a)

  40. I didn’t know where to put this. (stranahan tweeted it)

    Andrew’s last radio interview. He talks about O’Keffe and swattings even. Very interesting.
