    Amazon employees are up in arms and stepping up the pressure on the higher brass to remove Amazon advertisements from the Breitbart News site. The overwhelming consensus from frustrated employees is the “alt-right”ť news site promotes discrimination, and it makes them feel “unsafe.”ť According to internal emails in February retrieved by BuzzFeed News, dozens of Amazon employees are voicing deep concerns through internal emails that Amazon advertise on Breitbart, despite being an outspoken critic of President Trump’s immigration policies. They are urging the company to cut ties with the news site.

    Senior editors at pro-Trump website Breitbart News have instructed staff members to stop writing critical stories of Jared Kushner, sources tell Business Insider.Kushner, son-in-law and adviser to President Trump, has clashed recently with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, the former CEO of Breitbart News.The New York Times previously reported that “Kushner allies have also raised the issue with the president of the increasingly unflattering coverage that Mr. Kushner is receiving from Breitbart News.”Trump reportedly told the populist Bannon and the more moderate Kushner to “work this out” after the pair’s feud was repeatedly dragged out into the press, according to the Times.The New...

    Employees at Breitbart News have been asked by senior editors to refrain from writing stories critical of Jared Kushner, two people familiar with the matter told Business Insider. .. On Wednesday night, for instance, Breitbart published three stories critical of Kushner and promoted them heavily on its homepage. The next day, Axios reported that Bannon had told associates, "I love a gunfight." .. However, a person familiar with the matter told Business Insider in March that Bannon had instructed Matthew Boyle, the website's Washington editor, to stop publishing articles critical of Priebus, who reports said had been feuding with Bannon....
  • Former Hillary Clinton Press Secretary: Campaign Was Caught Blindsided by 'Breitbart Effect'

    Hillary Clinton's former press secretary admitted Wednesday that the campaign was caught off guard by what he called the "Breitbart effect" during the 2016 election. Fallon made the comments during an appearance at Yale University on Wednesday. Fallon spoke of the organized, pro-Trump counter-narratives that seemed to dominate the news cycle, which often ended up putting the Clinton campaign on the defensive. Fallon said the so-called Breitbart effect cultivated a "standalone ecosystem in conservative media that very aggressively and successfully promoted certain stories and narratives we had a blind-spot for during the campaign.” Indeed, as the election stretched on and...

    Cenk Uygur bristles at the notion that the progressive media company he co-founded more than a decade ago, the Young Turks, is becoming the Breitbart of the left—that is, a pugilistic news outlet waging an ideological war with the establishment class. If you ask him, the comparison is backward. "Andrew Breitbart, when he was on my show before he passed away, said they emulated us, not the other way around," Uygur told me in mid-March, after finishing a panel at South by Southwest. "They get a lot of credit now because our idiot president reads them, but in terms of...

    TEL AVIV — Eastern European leaders have “drawn inspiration” from conservative U.S. media outlets, especially Breitbart News, to crack down on groups financed by billionaire George Soros that are allegedly attempting to meddle in domestic politics, Reuters reported. The news agency reported on Thursday: The campaign against Soros in countries formerly dominated by Moscow appears to follow a template set by Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose own crackdown on foreign-funded charities drove Soros’s foundation out of Russia two years ago. And now, with President Donald Trump in the White House, anti-Soros campaigners in Eastern Europe say they have also drawn...

    The Observer ^ | 3/22/17 | Michael Sainato
    Since her short-lived political career, Louise Mensch has developed a reputation among Clinton partisans as a constant purveyor of Russian election interference allegations and conspiracy theories. Like several Clinton partisans, her Twitter feed is completely focused on the anti-Russia narrative.On November 2016, the pro-Brexit former Conservative member of Parliament managed to transmogrify a tweet about the passing of Leonard Cohen—who is Canadian—into a pro-America, anti-Russia attack. In January 2017, she claimed without any evidence that a terrorist attack at a nightclub in Istanbul was a false-flag Russian operation. On March 20, Mensch retweeted a tweet claiming, “We are at war with Russia.” Mensch has previously called for all out war on Russia, with “precision bombing raids. Bank...

    The FBI is investigating whether conservative websites contributed to alleged Russian interference during the 2016 election, McClatchy DC said in an innuendo-laden report on Monday. Breitbart, InfoWars, and Kremlin-backed RT as well as Sputnik News are being examined by federal investigators, according to the report. The investigation is focused on whether Russia used social media “bots” to promote stories about President Donald Trump, unnamed sources told the website.

    WASHINGTON Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say. Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said. The bots’ end products were largely millions of Twitter and Facebook posts...

    If you can’t beat them in the arena of ideas — DESTROY THEM! That is the left’s new motto. The American left is now doing anything they can to silence anyone who poses a threat to their failed ideology. That includes starving them out of business. These are tactics of Communists and hoodlums. George Soros funded MoveOn.org is targeting Breitbart.com advertisers. Soros and Moveon.org wants Breitbart.com silenced. Move.on claims their campaign called “Sleeping Giants” has led more than 1,000 companies to stop advertising on the Breitbart.com.

    The Columbia Journalism Review ^ | March 3, 2017 | Yochai Benkler, Robert Faris, Hal Roberts, and Ethan Zuckerman
    The 2016 Presidential election shook the foundations of American politics. Media reports immediately looked for external disruption to explain the unanticipated victory—with theories ranging from Russian hacking to “fake news.” We have a less exotic, but perhaps more disconcerting explanation: Our own study of over 1.25 million stories published online between April 1, 2015 and Election Day shows that a right-wing media network anchored around Breitbart developed as a distinct and insulated media system, using social media as a backbone to transmit a hyper-partisan perspective to the world. This pro-Trump media sphere appears to have not only successfully set the...

    Shortly after President Donald Trump vowed to “do something” about the “cunning” media who he once again called “the enemy” of the American people, CNN announced on air it had been barred from today’s White House briefing. CNN reports New York Times, Los Angles Times, and Politico also were told they were not on the White House list, for today’s off-camera briefing. Breitbart, Fox News, Washington Times, and One America News Network were among those given entry, CNN reported. Today’s off-camera gaggle is distinct from the on-camera White House Press Briefing led by Press Secretary Sean Spicer, which is not...

    Milo Yiannopoulos, the incendiary writer and commentator who helped make Breitbart News a leading organ of the “alt-right,” resigned from the news organization Tuesday after a video of him endorsing pedophilia resurfaced online over the weekend. Yiannopoulos — known simply as MILO in Breitbart’s own coverage of him — has been a flame-throwing provocateur whose writing has offended women, Muslims, blacks and gay people ever since former Breitbart executive chairman Stephen K. Bannon hired him as a senior editor in 2014.

    All is not well at Breitbart News. A senior editor at the right-wing publication tells Washingtonian that “at least a half-dozen” employees are prepared to leave the company if Milo Yiannopoulos is not promptly fired. A second Breitbart source confirms this estimate. Yiannopoulos, himself a senior editor at Breitbart, was booted from his speaking slot at this week’s Conservative Political Action Convention (CPAC), following taped revelations in which he appears to endorse pedophilia.
