Andrew Breitbart on How He Got His Start

"I don't want to ever have that conversation. I don't want to ... ever want to have that conversation, because Arianna Huffington is Arianna Huffington, and Matt Drudge is Matt Drudge. The Huffington Post is the Huffington Post, the Drudge Report is the Drudge Report. And the best part about what I'm doing right now is that I'm doing ... I get to be me right now. And that ... that's the best part of this entire thing. This, to me, is the beginning of the beginning."

So what's the goal?

"I used to have modest aspirations for what it is," said Breitbart. "My goal was that going into the 2010 election cycle, that we'd have a few stories that we could, you know, hang our hat on and say, 'wow, we were there.' You know? And we made a difference.

"And the new media is now not just acting in a defensive, reportorial way, you know, acting as a checks and balance against mainstream media, but we're actually there with video and we're there with raw reporting, saying that this is what ... here's a story that perhaps the mainstream media isn't going to tell you. And we've had too many successes during that period of time, and we've had too many people who are, for the first time in a long time, excited that there's a place now for their voice to be heard."
