Synopses & Reviews
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 listen, Breitbart will certainly raise your blood pressure, one way or another.
"Breitbart burns up the pages on how and why, in his view, the Left controls the media. He gives it a new name the Democrat Media Complex and attempts to demonstrate its existence, claiming balance because of his prior association with the Huffington Post. Throughout, he provides readers with details on his life as a drunken frat boy; chooses a liberal friend to illustrate all Democrats and a liberal professor to illustrate all intellectuals; and reprises the Clinton-Lewinsky and ACORN scandals. Readers who appreciate Conservative media might enjoy Breitbart's treatise. The inspired will likely find a call to action that includes advertisement for the author's websites. But everyone will be able to agree that 'These are the years that we will look back on and question whether we did enough for our country and for our children.'

Righteous is three books in one, each self-contained. Together, they weave a narrative that will remind many readers of their own lives. Even if you don't share all of Andrew's political beliefs, you will find yourself identifying with at least some of his story and conclusions. The book is part biography, part history lesson, and part manifesto, and it flows with clarity of purpose from one page to the next. It subtly draws you into a narrative, strung through the whole book, where he meticulously makes the case against the media and pop culture, which, he argues, help spread and normalize the liberal agenda. He also explains how to combat that agenda.--The Daily Caller
Right smack in the middle of this volume is where Mr. Breitbart's narrative takes off like a rocket. The chapter "Breakthrough" is in and of itself well worth the price of "Righteous Indignation."--The Washington Times
