Bannon out at Breitbart


Steve Bannon continues a week of setbacks. He was forced to step down as the CEO of Brietbart News and he won’t be hosting a show on Sirius XM as planned. Where’s his next move? Fox News launched a preemptive strike: “Fox News will not be hiring Steve Bannon.”

Breitbart announced the news Tuesday afternoon on its website, saying it would work together with Bannon on “a smooth and orderly transition.”

“I’m proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform,” Bannon said in a statement on the site.

“Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish,” Breitbart CEO Larry Solov said.
