Posted By on March 1, 2012

Another notable has died way too young. Let’s hope those on the “radical left” don’t go overboard with their glee.

Andrew Breitbart, the noted Internet publisher and author, has died, according to a source at Big Journalism. He was 43.

A statement posted on his website said that Breitbart died “unexpectedly from natural causes” this morning.

The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office confirmed to ABC News Radio that Breitbart died shortly after midnight at UCLA Medical Center.

The following statement was posted on Breitbart’s website today:

“With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.
