After the absurd farce following the assault on Breitbart’s Michelle Fields, the deplorable actions from the Breitbart management have forced both Fields and Ben Shapiro to resign.
Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields and editor-at-large Ben Shapiro are resigning from the company over the site’s handling of Donald Trump’s campaign manager’s alleged assault on Fields, BuzzFeed News has learned.
Fields and Shapiro informed Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon of their decision Sunday night.
“Today I informed the management at Breitbart News of my immediate resignation,” Fields said in a statement sent to BuzzFeed News. “I do not believe Breitbart News has adequately stood by me during the events of the past week and because of that I believe it is now best for us to part ways.”
Last night it was revealed that they told their employees to STOP defending Michelle Fields about the assault.
Ben Shapiro was even more brutally honest about the sewer that has been made of the Breitbart news sites:
In his own statement, Shapiro said the episode was emblematic of how he believes the site’s management had sold out the legacy of its founder and namesake, the late Andrew Breitbart.
“Andrew’s life mission has been betrayed,” Shapiro wrote. “Indeed, Breitbart News, under the chairmanship of Steve Bannon, has put a stake through the heart of Andrew’s legacy. In my opinion, Steve Bannon is a bully, and has sold out Andrew’s mission in order to back another bully, Donald Trump; he has shaped the company into Trump’s personal Pravda, to the extent that he abandoned and undercut his own reporter, Breitbart News’ Michelle Fields, in order to protect Trump’s bully campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who allegedly assaulted Michelle.”
Wow. That’s three defections from Trump’s Pravda if you include Kurt Bardella, their spokesperson who quit a few days ago.
And this is how Trump treats a news site that LOVES HIM!!! Imagine how it’ll go for the rest of us under emperor Trump….
