As More Bail Out, Breitbart Responds to Shapiro’s Resignation

National security correspondent Jordan Schachtel and associate editor Jarrett Stepman have now joined Ben Shapiro, Michelle Fields, and spox Kurt Bardella in taking leave of the sinking ship known as Trumpbart. Schachtel’s reason:

“The company no longer resembles the ideals that inspired me to start writing for them three years ago. Some of us have been fighting behind the scenes against the party-line Trump propaganda for some time, but without any success, unfortunately,” Schachtel said in a statement. “Breitbart News is no longer a journalistic enterprise, but instead, in my opinion, something resembling an unaffiliated media Super PAC for the Trump campaign. I signed my contract to work as a journalist, not as a member of the Donald J. Trump for President media network. As recent events have proven, there is no longer a point in trying to reform the company from within, so I must step aside with my dignity intact. I wish everyone at Breitbart the best, and hope the site can redeem the legacy of its founder under much-needed new management.”

For its part, Breitbart fired back with this cartoonish attack on Shapiro:

breitbart-shapiro

The piece goes on to call Shapiro a “gadfly,” compare him to a baby snake, and accuse him of plagiarizing Breitbart material for his radio show and of not showing up for work for several years. Michelle Fields’ resignation is mentioned in passing as if barely worth noting, although she is featured in the accompanying graphic.

Apparently the piece was a failed foray into Onion-style parody journalism.

Even Breitbart thought better of publishing this crap and took it down, but the Internet is forever.

    Why isn’t Michelle Fields on the hate hoax list yet? Every time more proof comes out exposing her lies, she changes her story about what she claims happened…She said she was grabbed tightly and yanked down…Video proves it didn’t happen, make up a new lie to bash Trump and keep going with the new lie..

    Did you even watch the video?? Corey Landowski was walking at a normal pace across the room when Michelle Fields backed into him…He put out his arm to keep her from falling…No grabbing, no yanking, complete hate hoax all the way to get her name in the news…With a new book on the way she has to get her name out there any way she can…

    There are 2 videos, both of which seem to show him grabbing her.

    Can you post a link to the one that shows him grabbing her? He was walking across the room and she turned her head and saw who was coming she awkwardly lurched at him, so he then stuck out his arm to keep her from falling…If he did grab her, it was to keep her from falling, not the other way around…

    Lol. Oh he was just trying to help her. Hahaha.
    And she and the reporter from wapo or whatever did an impromptu acting out of the audio.

    She jumped towards him and then his arm moved…It’s perfectly clear unless unless you have a bad case of TDS…Again where is this magic video you speak of that show him assaulting the reporter??? The audio was her and a friend talking shit after Corey Landowski was gone…

    It wasn’t her and a friend, it was a random reporter from another outlet who saw it and asked her if she was alright. You can hear the crowd in the room because it happened seconds after the incident. Basically you are suggesting it is just them acting out a script.
    The other video of him reaching for her arm is on YouTube and the daily beast. It was even on Breitbart a few days ago.

    That video on the daily beast, (the one with the highlighted circle), doesn’t even show her in the picture it is a random hand in a sea of arms…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NoMPxomjiw

    Try watching a clear view of them passing each other and you will clearly see her lurch before his arm even starts moving…This hate hoax has been thoroughly debunked, time to find something else to cry about…

    He grabbed her. That’s not the story. She’s a snowflake. The real story is about character or lack thereof.

    Lewandowski knows he grabbed her. He said so, then suddenly decided to take that back, turn on the girl and demonize her. That gave the greenlight to the supporters to destroy her.

    Making that conscious choice, instead of simply apologizing- which is all she wanted- shows what kind of person he is.

    And the fact Trump knows and backs it shows who he is.

    These people want to run your nation and have all the power that comes with it! If they lie about this silly thing, what else are they lying about or will lie about? Worse, if you stop being their best friends and they turn on you, what will they do?

    Haven’t we had enough of this after eight years?

    Sure, and OJ was showing his ex wife and her friend his new knife and they both stumbled into it- a lot.

    You can see she didn’t see him until she was pulled sideways.

    Seriously there is a point where you admit they were wrong and move on.

    Buddy, Duckster, pal… A person walking in one direction, trying to keep pace with Trump, doesn’t change directions suddenly and stumble JUST as Corey walks by. There are three videos and an audio and a witness, and bruises on her arm. They all confirm her story and prove him lying. All he had to do was say sorry, I didn’t mean to grab you that hard. It was over. But they realized they could demonize her and did.

    Don’t buy in.

    As a retired detective from Florida let me assure you I would lock him up and get a conviction. This is a GREAT case!

    Of course we’ll see the “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” moment here- proving Trump is no different that Bill or Hill or Barack.

    Why are we not celebrating the self-termination of the vermin known as Fields and Shapiro? Self-termination is just my fantasy. If they did not oblige, we should and could make it involuntary, no?

    Worst experience since her father died!

    Having her fucking arm squeezed.

    She obviously didn’t care much for daddy.

    Breitbart lost me when they started posting articles about professional women’s boxing as news.
    Someone seems to be out to destroy Breitbart’s legacy.
