Former Breitbart reporter Lee Stranahan weighs in on BNN’s soft stance towards Jared and Ivanka:
Stranahan talked about his multiple stints with Breitbart, which eventually prompted him… to discuss the outlet’s pro-Trump conservative lean. Stranahan said that Breitbart hasn’t been scrutinizing the president as much as they should because they don’t want to risk their access to the White House…
Stranahan explained that it was Bannon’s decisions and connection to Trump that drove the site’s ratings up, and now the site doesn’t want to lose its standing by angering the president. He explained that this had much to do with the reports that Breitbart was going easy on Jared Kushner, who seems to be competing with Bannon for power and influence. Stranahan also said that Brietbart was especially “scared to death” of writing negatively about Ivanka Trump.
“One of the problems for Donald Trump right now, period, is Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump,” Srtanahan said, “and they simply did not want to go after them as the root cause of the problem, and they never want to do anything against Ivanka.”
