I don't want Breitbart.com attention

The only time I ever want to read my name in a Breitbart.com article (or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates) is when they are citing or referring to an article from a periodical or website that people actually read!

Otherwise, what's the point?

The same pretty much applies to Twitchy. These are examples of right-wing echo chamber media, shouting loudly in a bubble that a number of people can hear inside, but no one on the outside really cares about.  At best getting mentioned on Twitchy or Breitbart, for example, means that someone at Media Matters or RightWingWatch might see your name but that won't make it significant for the general public.

Andrew Breitbart is a fairly public figure, and slightly less so when he was alive, for good reason.  The eponymous website does not share that in common.
