I just got off the phone with the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office, confirming the news.
Andrew Breitbart died last night.
When word broke this morning, it seemed so unbelievable, it must have been some giant hoax designed to expose how folks will report unverified rumors. Some giant prank gone all too cruel. But it isn’t.
He had four wonderful children, who I saw bouncing around on the National Review cruise in 2010. You would have wanted to watch a sitcom or reality series about that family – four little bundles of energy bouncing off the walls, with their father’s spirit of mischief and their mother’s good humor and good nature.
Awful, awful, awful news.
Fox News is reporting that someone saw him collapse during a walk last night. He was immediately taken to a hospital.
