Steve Bannon will no longer be executive chairman of Breitbart News, the company announced today. (If you don’t want to give Breitbart your precious clicks, here’s the New York Times story on it.)
In recent weeks, Bannon has gotten in trouble with the right-wing group he helped stir to action to elect President Trump for his quotes in Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury.” In response to Bannon’s quotes, Trump ditched him via tweet. Then the reclusive and very rich Mercer family came out against him and in favor of Trump. The Mercers are huge donors for the Trump camp; here’s a long story explaining Mercer money.
Now, Breitbart dumps Bannon, too.
