Andrew Breitbart was a political brawler, so he’d be proud to see how the site he left behind is dealing with the biggest attacks it has ever had to face.
With Breitbart’s Steve Bannon playing a huge role in the winning Donald Trump campaign — and as he now heads to the White House, the conservative site is under more scrutiny than ever. More and more leftists are denouncing the news site as “racist” and “anti-Semitic.”
Rather than ignoring these charges, Breitbart.com has decided to take one of its critics to court, according to The Hill:
“Breitbart News Network, a pro-America, conservative website, is preparing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against a major media company for its baseless and defamatory claim that Breitbart News is a ‘white nationalist website,’” the statement reads.
“Breitbart News cannot allow such vicious racial lies to go unchallenged, especially by cynical, politically-motivated competitors seeking to diminish its 42 million monthly readers and its number one in the world political Facebook page. Breitbart News rejects racism in all its varied and ugly forms. Always has, always will,” the statement continues.
A lot of scores will be settled over the coming months and years, but this lawsuit will certainly be one to watch. How soon until we find out who Breitbart.com’s “major media company” target is, because we can’t wait?
