Billionaire investor Peter Thiel is reportedly considering launching a conservative news outlet backed by the powerful Mercer family, along with a cast of Fox News celebrities, according to Michael Wolff book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, and a report from BuzzFeed news.
According to Wolff, Fox News chairman Roger Ailes and Peter Thiel were set to discuss the idea of a conservative news outlet last May however Ailes slipped and fell two days before the meeting, hitting his head and dying before the discussion could occur.
Word of Thiels potential new venture with the Mercers is of particular interest in light of revelations about backstabbing Steve Bannon executive chairman of Breitbart News, with whom the billionaire family has now officially split following explosive comments made about the Trump family in Wolffs new book.
On Thursday, the Mercers and other Breitbart News Network LLC board members were reportedly debating whether to oust Mr. Bannon as chairman, while the news organization has been cast into disarray.
Staffers at Breitbart, which Mr. Bannon has called his killing machine, described a chaotic day at the company, with writersmany personally recruited by Mr. Bannonwondering whether he would last the day. Wall Street Journal

This is getting interesting. I like Mr. Thiel.
All talk no action. He who controls the airwave controls the masses.
Unless the right equalizes TV imbalance,the left will always control the dialogue and win the arguments.
Breitbart is a mess and has been for years now.
This is exciting news.
When Andrew died, my trips to his website did too.

Are ya’ll LOOKING at the two sources? LOL
I'm guessing they never saw this coming!
IDIOT! Bannon was probably the guy that OK'd Wolffe following the TRUMP campaign around!
Thiel is gay so don’t expect anything resembling social conservatism out of this, if it ever actually transpires.
And then there’s Trump with 44 million following on twitter rocking the planet.
they should just support free republic!
why re-invent the wheel?
Although I won’t go that far - yet, I’m quite sure that, were Andrew still alive, Bannon would be a distant memory already. I’m astounded that they haven’t pitched the “Commander’s” sorry ass yet.
But isn’t it ironic that, in my opinion, their best, most thoughtful commentator and adherent to conservative, constitutional principles is a British ex-Muslim?
The word conservative means globalist? In this case probably yes.
I wonder if all of these Bannon haters are also anti economic nationalism?
OANN is a wonderful source of actual news not opinion and propaganda. Plus the commercials are actually historical recaps.
To whom are you referring?
