Los Angeles-based media impresario and culture warrior Andrew Breitbart today launched his latest site. Big Journalism, like Big Hollywood and his others, is all about the right prevailing over the left. Unapologetically:
I’m skeptical and biased – and I think it’s what makes me good at what I do. No journalism symposium can convince me otherwise....
Big Journalism is staking the claim that media is now at war with one another: Big Media versus Small Media; Old Media versus New Media; Left Media Vs Right Media. You get the picture. The practice of journalism will never be the same, and not the New York Times’s Pinch Sulzberger nor all the sniping children at Gawker and Media Matters can un-ring this bell – which, after all, tolls for them.
As editor Michael Walsh says in his Welcome to the Fight note, it's for the crowd who sees the mainstream media as having been "at war, not only with its own readership, but with the country."
