What is Breitbart?

Breitbart is a news website

Breitbart News Network (known commonly as Breitbart News, Breitbart or Breitbartcom) is a far-right American news, opinion and commentary website founded in 2007 by conservative commentator and entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart. It also has a daily radio program on the Sirius XM Patriot channel called Breitbart News Daily.

Conceived by Andrew Breitbart during a visit to Israel in summer 2007, with the aim of founding a site that would be unapologetically pro-freedom and pro-Israel, Breitbart later aligned with the European populist right and American alt-right under the management of former executive chairman Steven K. Bannon.

The New York Times describes Breitbart News as an organization with ideologically driven journalists, that is a source of controversy over material that has been called misogynist, xenophobic and racist. Bannon declared the site the platform for the alt-right in 2016, but has denied all allegations of racism and later stated that he rejected the ethno-nationalist tendencies of the alt-right movement. The owners of Breitbart deny their website has any connection to the alt-right, or has ever supported any racist or white supremacist views. Breitbart voiced support for Donald Trumps 2016 presidential campaign, and the political scientist Matthew Goodwin described Breitbart as being ultra-conservative in orientation.
