Michelle Fields, Ben Shapiro Resign From Breitbart
Buzzfeed ^ | 3/14/16 | Rosie Gray

Posted on 03/14/2016 4:56:54 AM PDT by gore_sux

“Today I informed the management at Breitbart News of my immediate resignation,” the reporter at the center of the controversy at the conservative site told BuzzFeed News, the week after Trump’s campaign manager allegedly grabbed her.

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.”

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.

It looks like Trump is going to win his bet with his good friend Bill Clinton. I heard he made a bet that he could destroy the Republican party and the conservative movement, and it looks like he has succeeded.

This will be my last post for a while. Drudge, Free Republic, and Breitbart have been deleted from my bookmarks because they have all thrown aside conservative principles in favor of supporting a disgusting LIBERAL.

An opus garbed in the cloak of “news” that has been posted more than twice already.

Door - a$$ - you know what to do.

Nonsense. The GOP is being destroyed by the “Republicans” who meet in secret with rich DEMOCRATS. And who are they supporting? Ted Cruz.

And who are they supporting? Ted Cruz.

But only as long as necessary to block Trump. Once that's done, their effort goes directly to promoting Romney.

Could it be that they caught you and Shpiro in a lie? Videos don't lie.
