'I Killed Breitbart' Review: What Chris Faraone Saw at the Revolution

I don't care whether his family's feelings are hurt or not. If they are, they can take comfort from the extraordinary piety, stupidity, and, generally speaking, the uniformity of coverage of the man's death. 

-Christopher Hitchens, on the legacy of Jerry Falwell, as quoted by Chris Faraone, author of I Killed Breitbart.

Chris Faraone doesn't want your civility. To Faraone, ignorant, conspiratorial, and often racist ramblings on the Internet are the Real Conversation, or at least part of it, and we shouldn't try to pretend that real people aren't taking real time out of their real lives to make those comments.

Faraone’s latest book, I Killed Breitbart, brings you face-to-page with every commenter on the internet, including the Curmudgeonly Conservative, the Overly Earnest Liberal, and a sizeable group of people who believe the question is irrelevant because the answer is always RON PAUL 2012. Readers will find themselves in places that respectable members of society try to avoid, like a Free Staters rally in New Hampshire, the back of a police van in New York, and the entire Tampa-St. Petersburg metropolitan area. Along the way, Faraone discovers that even though astroturfing has become high art, there are still enough zealots, contrarians, and cranks to keep things unpredictable and endlessly entertaining.
