The Vetting has started. If you haven’t been there yet, I urge you to visit the redesigned Breitbart.com, its great looking, easier to navigate etc. Also make sure to read Andrew’s last article written for the first day of the new site, which begins something that the news media never did in 2008, vetting candidate Barack Obama.
Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of
the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that
our Constitution protects–but which, increasingly, the mainstream media
“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the
guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting
Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes.
Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama.
Andrew did not want to re-litigate the 2008 election. Nor did he want to
let Republicans off the hook. Instead, he wanted to show that the media
had failed in its most basic duty: to uncover the truth, and hold those
in power accountable, regardless of party.
From today through Election Day, November 6, 2012, we will vet this president–and his rivals.
We begin with a column Andrew wrote last week in preparation for today’s
Big relaunch–a story that should swing the first hammer against the
glass wall the mainstream media has built around Barack Obama.
