Within days of the untimely death of Andrew Breitbart at 43, a team of dedicated supporters had launched a redesigned Breitbart.com, determined to carry on the vision of its founder and provide a conservative voice to counter liberal sites like The Huffington Post. The site carried on with the blessing of Breitbart’s widow, but a visible and unsightly crack within the team has opened into a fissure through which several writers have chosen to exit, including editor-at-large Ben Shapiro and Michelle Fields.
It’s not the first time people have made the suggestion, but the ugliness of the split has renewed a call for the site to change its name. The chance of that happening is next to zero, but that’s beside the point.

I feel an online petition should be started to drop Andrew's Breitbart's name from Bannon's Trump-Pravda website? @benshapiro

Take the man’s name off this garbage site already https://t.co/qwfd6CbS7p

@JohnEkdahl I never knew Breitbart the person, but going by his words he wouldn't recognize the website he created.

It's really unfortunate that Andrew Breitbart's name get defamed because some incompetent dolts took over his site.

The site bearing his name seems to have become everything Breitbart fought against. https://t.co/g0GP71MtYV

@JordanSchachtel they need to take Andrew's name off the site. He would hate what it has become.

Seriously, it's a bad site run by bad people. Just ignore it. https://t.co/eIPGn7cv01

Take the man's name off that site. They won't for many reasons, but namely the trade value. Sickening.

Also, take the man’s name off the site.
For decency’s sake?

If it weren't for the Breitbart name, I wouldn't care about the media site going down. The memory of Andrew deserves better!

Having Andrew Breitbart's name associated with the current "news" site/organization would have him turning over in his grave!

It's probably a good time to take Andrew Breitbart's name off the website now. I think Rush had it right. #Trumpbart

Breitbart doesn't deserve to be using Andrew Breitbart's name anymore. It's really sad. https://t.co/Tf0QHRy2ST

It is sad, but also worth remembering that Andrew Breitbart’s lasting influence isn’t the sole property of Breitbart.com.
Breitbart's legacy is in the countless ordinary people he inspired to get involved, not in the debased site that sadly still bears his name.

You don't need Andrew Breitbart's name to carry on his fight and honor his legacy.
