As America and the world learn about the horrific events in Las Vegas, and news is being updated as we record here on Monday, we had Brandon Darby provide his perspective on the tragedy, the politicians who immediately politicized it, his relationship with Andrew Breitbart and the Mexican Drug Cartels. Brandon Darby is Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief at Breitbart Texas. After we stopped recording we learned about Tom Petty being near death. A special tribute at the end.
Brandon was the subject of Jamie Meltzer’s 2012 documentary film, Informant, about his experience infiltrating Occupy Wall Street. The film won Best Documentary at the Austin Film Festival. Brandon has also been very involved in detailing the threats from the Mexican Drug Cartels. Brandon is a co-founder of the Cartel Chronicles project with Ildefonso Ortiz and Steve Bannon.
