Radio host, sometime CNN contributor, and Breitbart.com non-blogger Dana Loesch has filed suit against Breitbart.com LLC, according to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, seeking release from her contract, and $75,000 in damages.
Conservative talk radio host and commentator Dana Loesch sued the owner of the conservative website Breitbart.com Friday, claiming that although her relationship with the news and opinion aggregating website had gone tragically awry, Breibart.cοm LLC refused to let her work for the company or anyone else, forcing her into indentured servitude in limbo.
The suit, filed in U.S. District Court here, seeks at least $75,000 in damages, as well as a judges declaration that her contract had expired.
In August, at the height of Rep. Todd Legitimate RapeAkins notoriety, Loesch tweeted Akin advising him not to appear on fellow CNNer Piers Morgans program, then reached out to the campaign to confirm Akin had canceled his appearance...
The network confirmed, in November, that Dana Loesch is still a CNN contributor, and multiple sources at CNN say there is no organized blackball, that booking decisions are made by the executive producers of each show, but that poaching Akin might not have endeared her to those EPs. -

The Saint Louis post dispatch had a little more information. Sounded like it was a difference of direction and a assumption the site was not going the way Andrew wanted it so they said Dana said it was a dying site or group of sites. They made it sound like she wanted out and they wouldn’t let her, but she quit in September. But they actually renewed her contract. So she works for them still, but she is not working for them. In other words she quit doing the articles and work she did with them.
The Mediaite article focuses more on her not being with CNN on air, but CNN still listing her as a contributor.
And a few people asked about Dana when Breitbart.com announced the hiring of Washington Time’s Kerry Picket this month.
They would not let her out of her contract it sounds like. So can she just leave. What can she do since she was renewed instead. It sounded like she wasn’t free to go to another place. And she quit doing the job she was hired for them.
I hope this can be worked out. I like them both.
” it was a difference of direction and a assumption the site was not going the way Andrew wanted it”
I liked Dana’s articles. I’m on Breitbart everyday. I see the changes and agree that it is moving away from Andrew’s passions and direction. I find that sad.
Can someone explain to me if theres supposed to be a scandal that someone pees on the corpse of a Taliban fighter?
Someone who, as part of an organization, murdered over 3,000 Americans?
Id drop trou and do it too. Thats me, though.
I want a million cool points for these guys. Is that harsh to say?
Come on people, this is a war. What do you think this is?
The guys running breitbart now are a bunch of morons. Shut it down. Ben Shapiro is a turd. Seriously
A lot of shuffling among radio hosts lately. Savage, Ingraham and now Leosch. It seems people are taking sides. No?
