(BIG JOURNALISM) Breitbart News is releasing newly-discovered footage of Andrew Breitbart at Occupy Los Angeles, confronting and debating radical activists as police began moving in to clear out the protest site last fall. The footage was captured on a standard Flip camera in the middle of the night on November 27-28, 2011, and was never published–though images from the event were tweeted at the time. 48 hours later, police completed the eviction.
In the footage, Andrew Breitbart is seen debating masked anarchists as well as an unidentified NBC News executive who had arrived to support the demonstrators ahead of their impending removal. Across several segments, Breitbart offers a concise, nuanced analysis of the Occupy Wall Street movement, contrasting its revolutionary, destructive ambitions with the patriotic constitutionalism of the conservative Tea Party movement
