A conservative writer and frequent FOX guest passed away suddenly, Friday, of swine flu. Bre Payton wrote for The Federalist, and often appeared on the network on a broad range of topics. 

Fox News has more: 

Payton, who was based in Washington, was in California this week guest-hosting a show on the One America News Network. On Wednesday, Payton told her Twitter followers to tune in that night to see her on television.

But the next morning, according to the CaringBridge post, a friend found her “unresponsive and barely breathing.”

“She immediately called 911 and Bre was taken to the hospital where she was admitted to the ICU, sedated & intubated, and doctors began working up a diagnosis,” the post said. “After a CT scan and hours of testing, they have determined she has the H1N1 flu and possibly meningitis.”

The Federalist, in a post on the site Friday, remembered Payton as someone who “brightened the lives of everyone around her.”

Rest in peace Bre, you will be missed.
