Documentary film - 'Hating Breitbart" - to be shown in Miami on May 17

The Washington Times described the late Andrew Breitbart as "a legend within the conservative community and the living embodiment of a journalistic warrior who fought against intellectual dishonesty in the media."

Breitbart, who died of a heart attack last year at age 43, is not a fond memory for the Liberal Left.

He was the filmaker who exposed the Association of Community Organizations for Reform NOW -- better known by its acronym ACORN. In 2009, he caught ACORN workers in an undercover video advising a young couple on how to keep from paying taxes from money earned in prostitution. ACORN disappeared. He also played a role in uncovering the Twitter sex scandal of U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, a New York Democrat. Weiner disappeared.

His life's work is now the subject of a documentary that will be in theaters around the country. Among the stops is Miami on May 17 at the Palace 18 Cinemas, 11865 SW 26 St. Showtimes are to be announced.


Here's the press release:
From ACORN to Weinergate, HATING BREITBART tells the story of one man with a website who forever changed the media paradigm, upending the traditional press and changing the ground rules of political journalism. He opened the floodgates to an army of citizen journalists who used new media to completely rewrite the narrative. In the process, he repeatedly found himself the target of a media feeding frenzy as the old paradigm's supporters pushed back.

Andrew Breitbart was a polarizing figure whose legacy is still being debated. Loved and hated, Andrew was a jovial prankster and a one-man wrecking ball who used his unique understanding of both traditional and new media to change the way that information flows in the modern era.

Filmmakers capture Breitbart's journey onto the national stage after publishing the videos, documenting the paradigm shift as more scandals unfolded. We see Breitbart become a celebrated speaker at Tea Party events with powerful enemies and legions of supporters who, in the wake of his sudden death at the age of 43, now carry his picture at rallies across the country.

HATING BREITBART is a dramatic account of a media figure with a larger-than-life personality evocative of the great newspaper titans of generations past.
