Summary

Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way.

In Righteous Indignation, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on. Along the way, he details his early years, working with Matt Drudge, the Huffington Post, and so on, and how Breitbart developed his unique style of launching key websites to help get the word out to conservatives all over.

A rollicking and controversial read, Breitbart will certainly raise your blood pressure, one way or another.

Really interesting & enlightening.

I was unable to put it down. Very human story. Andrew describes how Bill Marr setup to destroying him. I've watched this done to the 'left's' opponents many times in the UK too. One conservative constantly interrupted whilst all guests, host and audience attack without evidence, mercy or self reflection.

Interesting Perspective and narrative.

It is a scary thought to believe that so many can walk through their every day lives, so naive and being continually manipulated by all manner of narratives. it is insidious and subversive in the extreme.

A visionary

Breitbart sums up the MSM in such a way that makes it possible for the average person to appreciate how it operates.

Great.

I had always been curious about Breitbart and who he was. This was a great listen and very well read, it's just a shame he did not read it himself. It is also a shame we lost him when we did, I can only wonder what he would have said about the current trends about today.

Just as relevant today.

I wish I'd known about him when he was alive. A tremendous loss to freedom.

Understanding Trump's America

I heard this book referred to on a podcast and I occasionally read articles on Breitbart news, but I didn't know much about Andrew Breitbart himself. What do I know now? Well, he seems to be a figure in the mould of Steve Bannon, opinionated, smart, funny and well read. You might not agree with his politics but at least he seems to be someone pushing a different agenda to the leftish liberal consensus that the media undoubtedly promotes. The book is a little bit out of date and a bit American - I didn't know about the Acorn video scandal, and could have cared less - but I'd forgotten about what a lying, snivelling snake oil salesman Bill Clinton was. As the Lewinsky scandal was reviewed in this book, I was astounded by the people corralled in at the time, the politicians and so-called intellectuals, who tried to defend Clinton's behaviour. Clinton might look sane compared to Trump, but while the latter talked about grabbing women by the pussy, the former just did it. Because he could. Breitbart uses the extensive examples of Acorn and Clinton to dissect how the media defends the liberal agenda while conservative views are buried in the rubble. Again, that's maybe not so much in evidence today, but it's interesting to see it exposed. There's no doubt in my mind that there's more than a grain of truth to Breitbart's argument that controlling and shaping the cultural mood shapes the political one. It's not the other way around. And I also think that Clinton and Obama were way ahead in that understanding compared to where the Bush Republicans were. When I thought about it, it did seem that Bush was saved, in a way, by 9/11, which paused the media from continually portraying him as a bumbling, incoherent Texas good ole boy. It's an interesting listen and I feel I learned quite a bit from this book. I left it feeling that Breitbart had a lot more to add to the political and media world, for better or worse, if only he'd lived to deliver it.

Boring

I found this book difficult to follow, the narrator speaks too fast which for someone from the UK is often a problem. I find some of these books, kind of political, telling what happened kind of thing sound interesting before you begin but drone on in a monologue when really they require more intonation and expressive narration to keep the listeners interest and also to get across the story. Disappointed, wouldn't recommend.

Good read

Enjoyed this a lot. I like to have a look at things from both sides of the aisle and this was a great insight into the view from the right.

Please get this book!

I wish I could write as clearly and concisely as the author, Andrew Breitbart. Nothing I can scribble here today will do justice to this book. Whether you’re a veteran Tea Party member, or just plain confused by the ongoing media culture wars, you must read or listen to this thoroughly entertaining and informative writer’s work. Jeremy Guskin narrates the audio version flawlessly and with passion which makes, at least for me, the audio version the most important book I’ve purchased in a number of years.

As other reviewers have noted, chapter 6 is a concise yet amazingly complete synopsis of both the structure, development, and operational methods of the left. Listen to it more than once and take notes. This is important stuff. You will discover there are immediate benefits to be gained from a clear understanding of this chapter. This is not to say the earlier chapters are less important, just more developmental in their structure.

I’ve been fascinated by the left since my college days in the early 60's, and have spent much of my time since on a quest to understand their motivations. They’ve paraded before us a seemingly endless conga line of victims. They’ve characterized those of us objecting to their intrusions into our lives as bigots, haters and worse. They invented PC - the closest thing to an anti-free speech doctrine yet devised. They’ve invaded our schools, our universities, our governments and our daily lives with little or no resistance - till now.

Breitbart helped summarize my observations and studies of the past 40 years and filled in a number of missing elements. I now know one thing for certain - the left can and must be engaged! This book will tell you how.

Breakthrough

Chapter 6 of this book, Breakthrough, is the best short explanation of how this country got turned ass-backward politically, socially, and, now, alas economically. Rousseau to Marx to the Progressives to the Frankfurt School and Critical Theory to Chairman Mao and Hillary's main-man, Saul Alinsky, and before you know it Barrack Obama's holding court in the Oval Office. An amazing piece of work. Should be required reading for citizenship. Way to go, Andrew.

Very insightful!

Most of us realize by now that the mainstream media is controlled by the left. Breitbart does a great job of explaining how it got that way, and gives valuable insight as to how they operate. Breitbart got to the point where he could predict with great accuracy how the liberal media would respond to a story or event before they actually did. Any conservative planning on running for office had better buy this book and memorize it, or risk becoming "Palinized" in their campaign. A fantastic "how-to" book on dismantling and counter-attacking the baseless charges leveled by the left wing media. Hint: Offense, not defense.

Listened to the whole book in one day.

Breitbart is like a lot of us. Not caring at all about conservative politics until something just dawns on him. And poof! A political junky is born.

This book was very interesting for several reasons. Andrew and I got into conservatism roughly at the same time. As I read, I remembered just about every event.

However, Andrew actually became a player (unlike me) and played a significant role in shaping things.

This book tells how it happened. There is quite a good explanation of Saul Alinsky's tactics. It is also highly motivational.

Great book.

Brilliant, Pompous, and Great

I've never really "known" who Andrew Breitbart was. Sure, I remember the ACORN story explosion, and the confirmation (for me at least) that the traditional media is so out to lunch it's scary, but I didn't know this guy. If I'm honest I probably thought he was some rich guy who threw money around trying to influence politics, a la George Soros, but as it turns out I was wrong. Andrew Breitbart is what I can safely call a visionary. He saw what the problem was before most people knew there was a problem, and he know what the solution is. Read this book, Jeremy Guskin does a great job narrating Breitbart's words, and for someone like me who can't remember ever seeing an interview with the man, the voice could have been his for all I'm concerned.

His tone is arrogant at times, but the overall tone is like an older brother trying to give you pointers on how to pick up that really cute girl in your English class. All I can tell you is "Trust me, it will work!"

Awesome listen... Maga before Maga

Scary to listen to this book for the first time in 2019 and everything in it is happening now or has bloomed into today's politics. How you can vote democrat or rhino is beyond me at this point. I wonder if President Trump has met with Andrew in the past. Very fun and educational listen.

Very good, and exactly what is happening.

Corresponds with my experiences with leftist, who without the right would die of starvation and sickness. And their supposedly "Scientific " approach to the world is nothing more than an excuse to grab power and wealth and hide behind a mountain of lies and deception.

Great Book, Andrew Breitbart Explained

The book has a fast paced style and it's so captivating that it could almost have a techno soundtrack .

Also it captures a genuine path many conservatives follow as young liberals.

It also shows how Breitbart planned to destroy the liberal media complex. Today, CNN and NYT are falling apart as AB predicted. There is no faith in "established" media

CPR: Captivating, Profound & Relevant

I've listened to Righteous Indignation three times now and will most probably listen again real soon. It's that good! It's flows beautifully with an honest, sincere and poignant approach to very serious issues currently affecting all of us. Jeremy Guskin's delivery of Breitbart's book is perfection; yes, beyond perfection! His voice isn't that of a polished announcer; it will grab and hold your attention for hours. If you're at all like me, my mind seems to drift a bit while listening to audiobooks. Not the case with this work of genius. It plainly explains! It digs deep and uncovers the strange history of what got us bogged down in political correctness and the diabolical reasons why! And you'll be given hope and encouraged to join the battle while being thoroughly entertained.
