I Just Removed a Breitbart.Com Video Because It Was Set to AutopLay. Ef Breitbart.com I’m Removing Them From My Bookmarks and Blogroll

Sorry guys, for the annoying autoplay. Breitbart.com is among the worst sites since Andrew died. It couldn’t be worse run if it was taken over by demented old circus monkeys.

    They should have Ushered his ass back out and tell him to get in line like everyone else!

    Few things online are more annoying than a video that autoplays. I don’t have the bandwidth to spare.

    Have to agree on the Breitbart site comment. Used to be so much fun in the early days.

    I miss the conversations with a lot of the people.
    Cowboy Logic
    Snow Leopard
    Joe Doakes
    So many others.

    Now it is just boring and repetative.

    I agree. Since Andrew died that site has become a joke – a useless gossip blog.

    God how I miss AB. Every time I see his pic I choke up. He was really just coming into his own.

    I think we need to support James O Keefe now. He is the real deal, no bullshit, guy too. He has begun to be pushed into the background in spite of the fantastic work he does. Andrew would not want to see that happen.

    The “Bigs” sold out…..fast.

    Lets save O’Keefe and keep his work going forward.

    Not as good as it used to be. I stopped when you had to sign up with one of their id’s and give your date of birth. I sent a note to them (which is damn tough to do unless you have one of their id’s) but never got a satisfactory as back as to why.

    Could be worse. Like say Townhall.com.

    I almost never go to Breitbart any more. In fact I am just about ready to remove them from my bookmarks. Has anyone noticed how they slowly added in more and more stupid Hollywood stories? Like I care what all those pagans are doing, thinking and saying.And I have a difficult time opening their reader comment section.

    I know this is not the kind of website Breitbart would have wanted. A real shame to his memory and his mission in life.

    I’m with you on that. They killed him.

    Your intuition is right BigFurHat, Breitbart.com has turned into the ‘National Inquirer’.
    They are no longer what they once were while Andrew Breitbart was alive.

    I hate to admit it but Breitbart has devolved into a static heep of “squirrel” stories from the right. Instead of following Andrew’s vision they have become a Ben Smith like buzzfeed for the right, and they even suck at that.

    I removed them from my bookmarks recently for the same reason. Nothing better than a massively loud video autoplaying while I’m at work. :)

    If you use firefox or chrome, there are extensions you can install to prevent auto-play. Though, I gather from you stating that Breitbart.com “couldn’t be worse run if it was taken over by demented old circus monkeys” that it’s about more than just auto-play…

    Funny thing is, the last story I just clicked on just autoplayed as well. The link on IOTW regarding the mailman accused of stepping over a dead guy’s body. Remove that one too!
