More high-profile resignations at Breitbart, after abused reporter thrown under Trump’s bus


After Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields was beaten up by one of Donald Trump’s aides while covering a Florida campaign event, the company’s senior management sided with Trump, ordering staff to cease communicating about their colleague’s treatment.

Fields and editor-at-large Ben Shapiro have both resigned in protest, penning scorching statements condemning their employer and naming Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon as specifically culpable, accusing him of betraying founder Andrew Breitbart’s “mission.”

Shapiro accused Bannon of turning the news site “into Trump’s personal Pravda.”
