News critic and social-media entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart discusses his new book – Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World.
The event took place in New York City on July 6th, from 6:00-8:30 PM at the Harvard Club of New York, 35 West 44th Street. Mr. Breitbart spoke about his latest book and a reception followed immediately after.
Righteous Indignation begins with Breitbart’s coverage of the ACORN scandal and his subsequent rise to becoming one of the country’s biggest New Media magnates. Along the way, he details his early years, in which he worked with Matt Drudge and the Huffington Post, and how he developed his unique style of launching key websites, such as Breitbart.com, Breitbart.tv, BigHollywood.com, and BigGovernment.com.

More About The Manhattan Institute:
For over 30 years, the Manhattan Institute has been an important force in shaping American political culture and developing ideas that foster economic choice and individual responsibility. We have supported and publicized research on our era’s most challenging public policy issues: taxes, health care, energy, the legal system, policing, crime, homeland security, urban life, education, race, culture, and many others. Our work has won new respect for market-oriented policies and helped make reform a reality.
Located in New York City, the Manhattan Institute produces ideas that are both literally and figuratively outside the Beltway. We have cultivated a staff of senior fellows and writers whose provocative books, essays, reviews, interviews, speeches, and op-ed pieces communicate our message and influence the debate. These fellows work in the Institute’s six policy centers, which study and promote reform in areas ranging from health care, higher education, legal policy, urban development, immigration, energy, and the economy.
Looking toward the future, the Manhattan Institute launched the Young Leaders Circle in January 2007, to provide a forum for young professionals in the New York metropolitan area interested in free-market ideas and public policy. The circle already has over 100 members, who hear such leading thinkers as David Brooks, Shelby Steele, William Kristol, and Steve Forbes discuss the pressing issues of the day in an evening lecture and cocktail party series.
