Breitbart's Big Government website serves as a platform for political commentary and news written by conservatives. Andrew Breitbart launched the site on September 10, 2009.
Big Government promotes individual liberties, limited government, free markets and its understanding of the beliefs of the Founding Fathers, as reported by Fox News when the site launched. Previous contributors to Big Government include former governor of Texas Rick Perry and former United States representative Newt Gingrich.
The site gained attention soon after its launch because of its role in the 2009 ACORN video controversy. In addition to news articles and editorials, Big Government features videos, a newsletter and the latest headlines from its partners at Fox News.
