Here come the Breitbart conspiracy theories

Last night as we were preparing the evening newscasts at Fox News Radio, one of the anchors wondered out loud how long it would be before the conspiracy theorists started sounding off about the death of conservative blogger and publisher Andrew Breitbart who had died earlier that day.

Not long, as it turns out.

A conservative politico from New Hampshire sent me a message about 30 minutes later. Saying she was already hearing theories being presented that Breitbart was "taken out" because he was about to "spill the goods" on President Obama.

And right wing radio talk show host Michael Savage wasted no time taking to the airwaves suggesting much the same.

The LA County Medical Examiner's Office says Breitbart died of natural causes. Family members say he had a history of heart problems.
