Andrew Breitbart’s Big Peace Has Arrived

Posted on July 5 2010 10:00 am
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

One of the most innovative conservative new media entrepreneurs in the world, Andrew Breitbart, has created yet another ‘Big’ website. The new blog, dedicated to national security issues, is called Big Peace and promises to be as influential and innovative as Breitbart’s Big Hollywood, Big Journalism and Big Government.

The co-founder of the Huffington Post – he helped Arianna Huffington set up her website when she was still a conservative – and former Drudge Report editor explains his motives for creating Big Peace in a blog post:

For the last 10 months, Big Government has been the “Big home”” for these stories but Big Peace is now their proper venue. For instance, bestselling author Brad Thor broke the story two months ago that Mullah Mohammed Omar had been captured by Pakistani ISI. That story was also confirmed by Lt. Col. Oliver North and Baba Tim. Notice the Obama administration and the Department of Defense have not officially denied this story. We also broke the story about the Obama Administration’s decision to move Guantanamo Bay prisoners to Thompson Correctional Facility in Illinois.

These major stories and more now have a natural home at Big Peace. Journalists, former Pentagon officials, foreign policy officials, foreign dignitaries, members of the armed forces, elected officials, and assorted insiders will use the dynamic “Big Group Blog Template” to make American and international security front page news once again. And, of course, you, our readers will be able to contribute to the discussion through our dynamic interactive comments section on each post…

The website’s editor is Hoover Institution Research Fellow and bestselling author Peter Schweizer. The other members of the editorial board are the Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy Frank Gaffney and Jim Hansen and the milbloggers at BlackFive.

Conservatives of all stripes are wise to support Breitbart’s latest initiative in every possible way. As he points out, “the amount of reporters and media outlets covering national security and the war has dwindled and skepticism over American military commitment has waned now that there isn’t a Bush or a Republican in charge. The war beat is getting short shrift.” Big Peace, the website’s editor-in-chief says, was “created to fill this void and to provide biased coverage.”
