Andrew Breitbart Documentary Poised to Set Record Thanks to Liberal Critics

Hating Breitbart, a documentary filmed during the last several years of the late Andrew Breitbart’s life, is about one man’s struggle against the left-dominated media.

How perfect that the film about the man is about to set a record in and of itself thanks to liberal media bias? According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hating Breitbart will soon set a record on the movie ratings site Rotten Tomatoes for the biggest gap between its establishment film critics score and the score given to it by the general public.

As of this writing, the film has received 8 critic reviews, all of which were negative and based not on the quality of the documentary but rather the reviewers’ hatred for its subject. By contrast, Rotten Tomatoes readers have given it a 96 percent positive rating.

The record will not be set unless Hating Breitbart gets 2 more negative critical reviews. This may not happen, however, since the film may become victimized by the other form of critic bias--simply not reviewing the film at all, an act which the New York Times Book Review has elevated to an art form in its own right.

Hating Breitbart had a limited theatrical release in 2012 and is currently available on DVD or via on-demand cable/satellite.

Disclosure: I am one of the people interviewed in the film discussing Breitbart's release of a video tape featuring former U.S. government official Shirley Sherrod. Incredibly, even after watching director Andrew Marcus's telling of the full facts of how Breitbart did not mislead about Sherrod's repentance from racism, some film critics, such as the Washington Post's Mark Jenkins, continue to believe the false narrative pushed by the conservative activist's critics.
