Journalist Andrew Breitbart plans to create 'BigJerusalem' site to report the Truth on Israel

(Via the Jewish Journal).Conservative Journalist Andrew Breitbart’s the owner of Conservative website,, and the first to publish an explicit photograph sent from Weiner’s Twitter account that turned out to have been sent by the congressman, attended last night the Republican Jewish coalition summer bash event in LA, which included GOP presidential candidate newt Gingrich, Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R - Fla.) and Kevin McCarthy (R-Cal.).

Breitbart, seemingly unchallenged for the moment, spoke glowingly of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin,and in an interview with The Journal,saying he’d like to see Gingrich become “the top adviser to the next President of the United States.”

Breitbart painted his support for Israel as simply—and with as broad a brush—as possible.

“I just don’t understand how an inherently decent and free people could be ‘the bad guy,’” Breitbart said of Israel. “I’m glad I’ve become a journalist, because I want to fight on behalf of the Israeli people.”

After telling the mostly Jewish audience that he was kicked out of University Synagogue’s Hebrew school as a child—“that’s where the battle started with the liberal Jewish community”—and dismissing his undergraduate degree from Tulane as training in “moral relativism,” Breitbart rejected the notion of journalistic objectivity in covering Israel.
“You cannot be objective when it comes to right and wrong, And Israel is in the right. So I’m a biased journalist, and I’m having a great time doing it.”
“This is a citizen movement,” Breitbart said of those who contribute to his multiple conservative websites, which are aimed at forcing the media to follow—or at least address—his attacks on the Left. “If you’re not going to cover this truth, every second that you don’t cover this truth, you’re going to look more and more stupid and you’re going to lose more subscribers,” Breitbart said.

Breitbart said he sees evidence of liberal biases everywhere—not least in Hollywood, and he is launching to continuously report on it. He professes disappointment with Jewish liberals in Hollywood and the stories they choose to tell.

“I wish [Steven] Spielberg, [David] Geffen, and [Jeffrey] Katzenberg, as representatives of that realm, would invest more in creating content that reflects American values".

Breitbart described his ongoing plan to create a website to tell Israel’s side of the story in a news landscape he sees as biased against the Jewish State. The online magazine Tablet has reported Breitbart saying he has not yet found a donor to support the project.
