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 Trumps campaign manager allegedly grabbed her.
Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields and editor-at-large Ben Shapiro are resigning from the company over the sites handling of Donald Trumps campaign managers 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 sites management had sold out the legacy of its founder and namesake, the late Andrew Breitbart.
U R gore and you sux, buh, bye, you whiner.
Breitbart-not the same since the death of it’s founder. Patiently waiting for Apple....
That these two submitted pro-forma resignations in lieu of being fired is standard fare, though it is usually so they can spend more time with their families - attend to an elderly grandmother, etc.
Resigned to avoid being fired for Journalistic Fraud.

**This is the video that got Michelle Fields and Ben Shapiro to quit Breitbart**
Smoking Gun Video Proves She Lied. Washington Post Reporter Ben Terris Lied. Breitbart Ben Shapiro called Donald Trump a THUS for this. She was barely Touched. She must be fired.
Michelle Fields insists she was almost on the ground
Her Washington Post Eye Witness Ben Terris claimed “He Pulled you DOWN!” #grabgate
The Video That Breitbart & Trump Cannot Ignore
I hear you, this campaign season has been rough.
“Could it be that they caught you and Shpiro in a lie? Videos don’t lie.”
Fields is a white Tawana Brawley without the dog poop.
Jeez....we are really gonna miss ya...NOT!
Good luck with your search for purity....and unicorns.
So called "conservatives" like this Breitbart reporter have willingly sacrificed their integrity to make up lies about Donald Trump. These so called conservatives are working hand in hand with Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and the GOPe and making up false stories. These so called conservatives are working hand in hand with the media on this. These so called conservatives have decided that any lie is justified to stop Trump.
You have to ask yourself...if Ted Cruz has joined with libs, squishy Republicans, the left and the media to stop Donald Trump then why? It's because Trump is a THREAT to government as usual. No more pork. No more gravy Train for Mr. Cruz and his big business donors. Fraud waste and abuse are going to disappear.
Disgusting post. Grow up and stop calling names.
Pollak told people not to talk about this which upset their reporters. Then all info on this drama about Fields was scrubbed from the site.
I think Breitbart would be ashamed of what has happened to his site.
Good riddance. I posted the video that truly shows what happened. Yes, Corey was close enough. Yes, it does look like Corey moves her out of the way. But it was typical of a press scrum and he didn’t try to throw her down. Also, look at her face as she is moved. It was just a typical scrum trying to get people out of the way.
Worst faux opus yet this season. LOL!
Yes, I have no doubt that legal calls were flying back and forth. Don’t forget that Matthew Boyle is mixed up in this too. He told Corey in an email that he didn’t make the claim about the “confession” but Daily Beast said they were sticking by their reporter. I haven’t looked to see what the update is about that.
“I heard he made a bet that he could destroy the Republican party and the conservative movement, and it looks like he has succeeded.”
You must be hearing voices.
On the important issues immigration, the border,jobs, trade and national security Trump is the most conservative candidate running.
They should have been fired.
The original poster has gone to whatever Valhalla exists that welcomes those who die with their keyboards in their hands.
