Breitbart News Network (known simply as Breitbart News, Breitbart or Breitbart.com) is a conservative news and opinion website founded in 2007 by Andrew Breitbart (1969–2012). It identifies itself as on the political right.
In August 2010, Breitbart told the Associated Press that he was "committed to the destruction of the old media guard." As part of that commitment, he founded Breitbart.com, a website designed to become "the Huffington Post of the right." Breitbart has exclusively re-posted the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal, the resignation of Shirley Sherrod, and the ACORN 2009 undercover videos controversy. Following Breitbart's death in 2012, the site was redesigned, bringing the formerly distinct "Big" websites under one umbrella website at Breitbart.org.
The news network includes sections called Big Government, Big Journalism, Big Hollywood, National Security, Breitbart Tech, Breitbart Sports, and Breitbart TV. In February 2014, the executive chairman of Breitbart News, Stephen Bannon, announced the addition of approximately 12 staff members and the opening of Texas and London-based operations. The new offices were the beginning of an expansion plan that included the addition of a new regional site roughly every 90 days, with new locations to include Florida, California, Cairo, Egypt and Jerusalem.
