Andrew Breitbart: Sensitive Olden Days Guy

breitbart.jpgChoire Sicha penned a piece in Radar about Andrew Breitbart‘s new venture into the conservative Hollywood entertainment news ‘market’:

What is more absolutely interesting to America than actors who have opinions about politics? Gosh, not much! (Economic regulation theory, maybe?) So, good news! Andrew Breitbart, the longtime Drudge henchman, is launching BigHollywood, a website for the non-left out in L.A. (Politico hilariously calls the staff “a who’s who of regular writers such as the Weekly Standard’s Joel Engel, Commentary’s next editor John Podhoretz, and novelist-screenwriter Andrew Klavan.” They mean, I think, a “who’s what?” It is run by the guy who ran the “website for L.A.’s conservative Liberty Film Festival.”)

Then Breitbart left the first comment:

I appreciate the instinct to go dismissive (snarky commentary being the coin of the blogging realm,) but when you are working with 200 words you should at least try to be consistent and factual. You start with the false premise of the site being about “actors who have opinions about politics” — a point that is not supported in your or Politico’s report. You then go on to mock Politico’s description of the contributors as “a who’s who of regular writers such as the Weekly Standard’s Joel Engel, Commentary’s next editor John Podhoretz, and novelist-screenwriter Andrew Klavan.” So it isn’t about actors having political opinions after all! (I know because you just told me so!) It’s about writers writing about Hollywood from a countervailing political perspective. Sorry they couldn’t be as well known as the Choire Sicha.
