Andrew Breitbart had a way of getting under the Left’s skin. The late media mogul understood how liberals worked in tandem with the mainstream media to push their preferred narratives. So both progressives and reporters alike hated Andrew with a passion.
It’s why “Hating Breitbart” is such an apt name for the new documentary capturing the late conservative leader’s work.
Patrons to a D.C.-area movie theater this weekend got a 3D-style experience while watching “Hating Breitbart.” Not only was The Huffington Post’s Ryan Clayton featured in the film, Clayton himself was in the audience. The liberal reporter became so disruptive during the screening he was temporarily kicked out of the theater.
Matthew Balan of Newsbusters was also in attendance and helped get Clayton removed, although the generous-minded theater management eventually let him back in.
I sat towards the back of the theater, as many of the seats were filled by the time I entered. When the documentary started, Clayton somehow thought it was appropriate to add his own commentary track and laughed like a hyena at various points. I spoke up and told him to stop talking. But he didn’t stop.
After putting up with his antics for about 10 to 15 minutes, I got fed up, and quickly made my way out of the theater to track down the management of the theater complex. I discovered that a young Hispanic woman, who also had enough of Clayton’s outbursts, had already left to do the same thing, and the two of us waited for the managers to come up to where we were.
When I reentered the darkened theater, instead of going back to where I had been sitting, I decided to sit in an empty seat near the front and next to the aisle. The managers came in not long after I did, and removed Clayton. As he was leaving, he walked right past where I was sitting and stopped in front of me, thus blocking my view. I told him to get lost, but he kept up his asinine behavior, pretended to have trouble hearing me, and moved closer to me. I repeatedly told him to get out of my face, and after a moment, he finally left.
Note: you can see Clayton in the trailer for “Hating Breitbart” starting at roughly the 1:09 minute mark.
