I heard this... It was a savage take down, and well deserved... Where were these words when he was a constant active threat to journalism? Brave Tina Brown. Speaking the truth when it does the least amount of good. But it is always nice to hear truth, I guess, especially on the radio.

She didn't 'savage' him, she described him. Although her accent makes it sound like she's saying 'Breitbot'. That's pretty savage, I guess.

I just copied and pasted their title but yes.

I know. I didn't mean to take away from Major Tom's comment either. It wasn't there yet when I hit 'post'. I would like to see somebody tell all about what an asshole Breitbart was, but it's probably still too soon.

I read this earlier and by comparing and contrasting AB's work with that of William L. Shire ... well, lets just say that I'd have to agree that it savages the sleazy one rather appropriately.

I think it unspeakably ugly to speak ill of the dead, especially when you kept your mouth shut, when they were alive. I am not a fan of Tina Brown.

Forever? Or for a certain period of time?

Lots of very nasty people are dead.

Every time I see Breitbart's picture I think of Peter Weller's line from Robocop. "Buddy, I think you're slime."

If the sum of a person's life involved exalting the powerful, abusing the powerless, and generally making the world a lousier place, speak as much ill of them as you want - just do so in a way that's truthful, and reinforces how utterly unworthy of admiration their chosen life was.

Apparently telling the truth is "savaging". I feel the words were quite restrained.

Tina Brown is no bastion of truth or fairness but she didn't misleed about Breitbart.

Unlike some of her of her previous 'work'.
