Criminal complaints, fake bylines and exodus: Breitbart News Network’s chaotic few days
Breitbart News Network likes to think of itself as a “Fight Club” for journalists eager to punch it out with politicians and politicos.
Now its staff is fighting amongst itself.
In the span of six weird and wild days, the popular and often outlandish conservative website has been beset by recriminations and rants, leaks and counter-leaks. The rolling spectacle features one criminal complaint; one video being analyzed with frame-by-frame, Zapruder Film-like intensity; one story published (then unpublished) under the fake name of an aggrieved reporter’s father; and six resignations (at least, at last count).
