Is Breitbart Getting Cucked?

Forgive the deplorable neologism, but this is Breitbart we're talking about.

The Bannon Kushner War may be a short lived one if this report from Business Insider is accurate.

Employees at Breitbart News have been asked by senior editors to refrain from writing stories critical of Jared Kushner, two people familiar with the matter told Business Insider.

The New York Times reported over the weekend that allies of Kushner, a senior White House adviser, had complained to President Donald Trump about the negative coverage he was receiving from the far-right website.

If this is true, I'd say it's a sign that Trump has given Breitbart a taste of establishment respect and they'd like to keep it.

Imagine that. The rebellious rogue's gallery of Breitbart debasing themselves and sacrificing editorial independence for access.

Speaking of which, this is exactly why Breitbart was denied permanent press credentials for the Senate press gallery. They have no independence.

  • I was worried that Kushner and Bannon might actually patch up their fight, which would be bad for America since the incompetent infighting is one of the things inhibiting the White House from enacting its horrible policies. But second later I remembered what terrible human beings they are and realized there’s no way they’ll actually get along for any length of time.

    Breitbart can no longer be cuck sockers, just Koch suckers.

    Wow that was bad!

    Depends.

    If Steve Bannon stays on in the White House—in whatever capacity—the Breitbrats would almost certainly continue to make nice with the administration in exchange for access. If Bannon gets turfed out, though, I could easily imagine Dead Andy waging all-out (rhetorical) war against the administration.

    Either way, the clownshoes at Dead Andy end up looking like fools.

    Oh, the delicious irony — that they will never comprehend.

  • I hadn’t heard The Breitbrats were denied Senate press credentials. Right on! In a former life, I held such credentials.
