- Before the death was confirmed, skeptics wondered whether the news itself was a conspiracy, a hoax perpetrated by Breitbart or Anonymous hackers.

- — Chuck Thies (@ChuckThies)Thu, Mar 01 2012 14:13:41I'm gonna go out on a limb here. The news of Breitbart's death is the product of an Anonymous hack. http://bigjournalism.com/lsolov/2012/03/01/draft/ ….com/lsolov/2012/03/01/draft/
- Of course, there was one other theory: The famous man's death could have been the product of a Business Insider reporter unfollowing him on Twitter.
