Breitbart News is preparing a lawsuit against a "major media company" over claims that it is a white nationalist website, it said in an exclusive statement to The Hill.
The website has been under intense scrutiny since President-elect Donald Trump named Stephen Bannon as a senior White House counselor and strategist. Bannon is the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, and the site has become associated with the alt-right movement that helped propel Trumps candidacy.
"Breitbart News Network, a pro-America, conservative website, is preparing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against a major media company for its baseless and defamatory claim that Breitbart News is a white nationalist website, the statement reads.
"Breitbart News cannot allow such vicious racial lies to go unchallenged, especially by cynical, politically-motivated competitors seeking to diminish its 42 million monthly readers and its number one in the world political Facebook page. Breitbart News rejects racism in all its varied and ugly forms. Always has, always will," the statement continues.

Between Facebook,twitter, and instagram Trump has over 30 million subscribers. After 4 years in office he will have over 50 million. Add to that talk radio and Breitbart and you have the makings of a media complex that can more than bury legacy media.
The legacy media has no idea what it is walking into. this is going to be fun.
Good. Skewer them.
I hope they include the SPLC. It’s long past time that wretched hive of scum and villainy was dragged into the light and shown for what they are.
About damned time. Make ‘em pay a price for
spewing this garbage.
I believe that company is CNN.
CNN I ASSUME
CNN must be the target of the suit.
It is amazing Trump now has this amount of power in the media.
Wonder if the Trump Administration might make much much much better use of Public Broadcasting stations (which are taxpayer supported in largest part) to communicate directly to the TV masses without relying on the usual alphabet jerk outlets much or any.
At any rate, PBS hierarchy needs a massive dose of the big boot of the American people.
Hope I’m on the jury!
Hope its GLEN BECK! (Blaze)
I would have guessed The Huffington Post, but they said “major media company” didn’t they?
Blaze is not major.
By the time this works its way thru the court system, we should have
another conservative Supreme Court Justice.
And after appeals, it may end up at the SC.
And I predict Breitbart will win a huge Judgement.
Sue them into bankruptcy!
MSM made a BIG mistake going after Bannon.
That guy knows how to fight.
Good for them.
