Ex-Breitbarter explains: Steve Bannon is colluding with white nationalists to ‘advance a radical agenda’

Published

The former spokesman for Breitbart News explained how the right-wing website overseen by Steve Bannon is nothing more than a propaganda outfit.

Media consultant Kurt Bardella broke down for MSNBC’s “AM Joy” how Milo Yiannopoulos, once Breitbart’s biggest star, signed his name to articles promoting racist themes that were actually written by others, and it was all funded by right-wing billionaire Robert Mercer.

“This was one of the most shocking revelations from the Buzzfeed piece, was that there is a quote-unquote reporter that would go out and take content written by someone else and publish it, and have that be the editorial direction that that story would go,” Bardella said. “Breitbart is not a news network, they’re not a media organization. They’re a propaganda machine.”

The Buzzfeed piece detailed how Yiannopoulos actively tried to mainstream white supremacist ideas for Breitbart readers.

“The fact that they would be so willing to collude to try to pander to the nationalist, racist demographic, their agenda isn’t to tell the truth, it’s to advance a radical agenda,” said Bardella, who stopped consulting work for Breitbart in March 2016.

‘Martyrdom for snowflakes’: CNN analyst knocks Republicans who desperately wanted to be arrested at protest

CNN host Don Lemon reported Wednesday evening that many Republicans wanted to be arrested for storming the secure room where the House Intelligence Committee depositions were taking place.

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted that he was told "there was never any chance [members] who barged into SCIF would be arrested by [capital police], but some members asked to be arrested. They wanted the optic of being frog-marched out of the SCIF in front of TV cameras. That would help w/GOP narrative of Dem process abuse."

Seth Meyers says Republicans storming classified room looked like a protest at a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra

Published

"Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers couldn't help but lambast the far-right Republicans angry that they're not being included in the depositions ahead of the impeachment hearings.

Wednesday, Republicans stormed a secure room known as a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility), because they seemed to misunderstand the difference between a deposition and a hearing. In Congressional hearings, witnesses will be presented for members of the committee to question. In a classified deposition, the witness can give information that is considered classified for security reasons. Oddly, some members who are allowed in the room were also protesting.

WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon bursts out laughing over Trump’s new wall in Colorado

Published

CNN's Don Lemon typically deals with difficult and intense topics at the top of his weekly show. Wednesday night, however, after a serious opener about Syria and ISIS, Lemon broke into hysterics over President Donald Trump's flub saying he would build a border wall on Colorado's border.

"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn't have it," said Trump. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."
