Breitbart goes Big Hollywood

The latest web venture from Drudge Report West Coast man Andrew Breitbart goes live Tuesday. Big Hollywood, he says, "is not a 'celebrity' gabfest or a gossip outpost - it is a continuous politics and culture posting board for those who think something has gone drastically wrong and that Hollywood should return to its patriotic roots." Contributors include his father-in-law, Orson Bean, former Daily News columnist Bridget Johnson, author Andrew Klavan and screenwriter-director-film writer Jim Nolte, who is editor in chief. Breitbart explains:

Big Hollywood's modest objective: to change the entertainment industry. To make Hollywood something we can believe in - again. In order to give millions of Americans hope.

Until conservatives, libertarians and Republicans - who will be the lion's share of Big Hollywood's contributors - recognize that (pop) culture is the big prize and that politics is secondary, there will be no victory in this important battle.

Hollywood is no longer an American industry. And it took a prolonged war in which the studios and most of the stars didn't show up to fight for America to draw attention to this hard truth.


No longer will "South Park" and Dennis Miller carry the load alone in pointing out the absurdities of the modern left....

Hollywood may not be completely anti-American yet, but it is certainly no longer pro-American. And no one has put up a public fight to change that.

Until now.

Breitbart is the founder of the news site and co-authored "Hollywood Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon - the Case Against Celebrity." He also was briefly the house conservative at the Huffington Post.
