"Hating Breitbart" About To Set A Record...Plus, Sad News

Hating Breitbart has been out on DVD, on-demand, and re-released in some theaters nationwide since mid-May. It's influence has been felt in a way that would make Andrew Breitbart proud (Newsbusters, via Andrew Marcus).
How perfect that the film about the man is about to set a record in and of itself thanks to liberal media bias? According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hating Breitbart will soon set a record on the movie ratings site Rotten Tomatoes for the biggest gap between its establishment film critics score and the score given to it by the general public.
As of this writing, the film has received 8 critic reviews, all of which were negative and based not on the quality of the documentary but rather the reviewers’ hatred for its subject. By contrast, Rotten Tomatoes readers have given it a 96 percent positive rating.
The record will not be set unless Hating Breitbart gets 2 more negative critical reviews. This may not happen, however, since the film may become victimized by the other form of critic bias--simply not reviewing the film at all, an act which the New York Times Book Review has elevated to an art form in its own right.
Hating Breitbart had a limited theatrical release in 2012 and is currently available on DVD or via on-demand cable/satellite.

While Americans are remembering and spreading Breitbart's legacy through word of mouth, we also have sad news to report tonight, that Breitbart's father, Gerald, died  yesterday.

With great sadness we announce the passing of Gerald Breitbart, husband of Arlene Mae Breitbart (1925-2013), father of Andrew (1969-2012) and his sister Tracey, and grandfather of seven fantastic grandchildren.
…Gerry was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He was a people person and therefore naturally a restaurateur–first, with his father at The Esquire in Chicago, Illinois, where Gerry grew up. Later, Gerry owned and ran the iconic Fox & Hounds Restaurant in Santa Monica with his sister Harriet until 1980, when Gerry “retired.”  Later, Gerry worked as the President of the California Restaurant Association.
In dedicating his book, Righteous Indignation, Andrew described his father as a “decent” man “who inspired me to act.”

We need more fathers like Gerald Breitbart to raise the next generation of patriots.

Rest in peace, sir.
