Breitbart expanding into righty news

Andrew Breitbart's Los Angeles-based family of aggressively right-wing websites will soon grow by one. Big Journalism's target will be what Breitbart calls the "Democratic-media complex” and the stated goal will be to "hold the mainstream media’s feet to the fire," he says. He already launched Big Hollywood and Big Government earlier this year, and has the more straight-up news sites and Breitbart TV. Breitbart's strategy of fighting liberal media political bias by being more biased — but from the right — will have rivals in Tucker Carlson and possibly other conservative competitors, says Michael Calderone at Politico. Big Journalism is due to launch in January.
