Ex-Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro: Part of Trump base ‘quite vile’

by
March 15, 2016

Ben Shapiro, a former editor of the right-wing web site Breitbart, said he resigned from the site yesterday because of the way they responded to an alleged assault on one of their reporters by Donald Trump’s campaign manager — and that he “would not be surprised” if an agreement existed between the site and the campaign to provide positive coverage.

“I had objected to the fact that we are a Trump cheerleader for awhile, but the problem is not a site setting its editorial policy in favor of a candidate … that happens, that’s any outlet’s prerogative. What is not their prerogative is when they begin to cover up the truth and attack their own reporters in defense of that candidate,” Shapiro said on Boston Herald Radio today. “That is just unconscionable.”

Ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, who said that she was grabbed by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as she attempted to question the Republican frontrunner last Tuesday in Florida, also resigned yesterday, along with editor Jarrett Stepman, national security correspondent Jordan Schachtel and Breitbart spokesman Kurt Bardella.

Fields posted pictures of her arm showing a bruise and filed a police report last week. Police in Jupiter, Fla., said their investigation of the incident is ongoing. Lewandowski has denied the allegation.

After initially publishing Fields’ account, Breitbart posted a story casting doubt on its own reporter, saying the “likeliest explanation” is that Fields was grabbed by a security officer, not Lewandowski.

    How easy they turn into leftie morons. On the word of one Trump hater, four people resign. Where is the video? Where is the Proof? Where are the witnesses? And where is the final police report? It does not take much for small minds to trade sides in fear of being on the underdog side. I wonder how much Soros and Clinton paid them to bring on these most likely false and definitely exaggerated statements. These two have NO morals and would stop at nothing to get their agenda pushed through.

      Did you know her publisher had her file the report against her will, (she had asked that they not release the filing,which she didn’t file) she refused to discuss it in the court of public opinion, but then they filed against her will, she simply asking for an apology and wanted to move on, she walked off an interview when as she put it they made a big deal out of a hectic situation, she wasn’t even the one who put the story out there.

    • I Seigel

      You’re such a hypocrite! You keep demanding “proof”, and then you don’t accept FACTS when they’re laid at your feet. Birth certificate for one thing. Committees finding no evidence of wrongdoing about Benghazi, for another. Multitudes of scientists talking about climate change. None of that makes a difference to you. So why grandstand about wanting “proof”, you hypocrite!

  • kcwas

    well how much did she get paid to play this game ….it’s amazing how low those dishonest lap puppies will squat ….don’t know about the rest of you but I so hope Mr Trump is President because I would love to know the truth about all the harmful things those non Americans have been doing … and how anyone one would want to put a criminal like hellery in for our first skirt is kicking every proud female in this country…and as for this whining news guy how much coin just got dropped in your pocket ….traitor….

    • Rick Vitti

      They all got paid pretty well especially when they just all stepped down from their jobs

  • Susan young

    And by the way I meant to put Goodyear is doing OK Avondale lost four companies Tonopah’s doing OK Backeye doing OK but they cut back at the Walmart DC the Walmart stores 248 stores of Walmart are closing in the United States think about it folks

    • I Seigel

      Think about what? What about Walmart closing stores?

      • Susan young

        Wallmart stores are closing 248 stores I gave family that work at the small Wallmart stores and Werehouse in buckeye az and it’s been all over the news ! The stores that are closing the people get to go to other stores but only 20 hours and no health ins.

        • I Seigel

          I still don’t get why we’re supposed to think about? I own stock in Wal-Mart. If stores are underperforming and dragging down the company, I’m glad they’re closing them. It will help the overall health of the company and the stock price. Sounds good to me.

          You can’t have it both ways, Susan. People can’t save money by shopping at Wal-Mart, and at the same time complain that we’re losing manufacturing jobs to China. Either shoppers should shop at stores that sell American-made goods, or can they choose to save money and support manufacturing that’s been outsourced to China. People make important decisions about the economy based on where they choose to spend their money and what their priorities are. If people supported American manufacturing and union jobs, then there wouldn’t be people shopping at Wal-Mart. Or are you one of those flag-waving hypocrites who buy China-made stuff at Wal-Mart because it’s cheaper, and then bash Obama for the trade deficit? Who do you think is REALLY responsible for the trade deficit?? It’s Wal-Mart shoppers, Susan!!!

    In Avondale Arizona there has been for companies that has closed in Goodyear Arizona we are doing OK but I Arizona we’re doing OK Tonopah we’re doing OK so let’s just all vote for Donald Trump and get more jobs get rid of the healthcare and he’s not raising our Social Security age that affects me

  • Susan young

Now he’s in Arizona and we need to vote California you need to vote Utah you need to vote Washington DC Republicans are finding ways to stop Donald Trump ! from winning so that means there ignoring the voters in the United States they wanted their way or no way if they do this to Donald trump all the voters that voted for Donald Trump we will sign a petition against Washington DC and in peach Washington DC !! Wake up Republicans wake up

    • Gaylen H

      If he keeps a cooler head he’ll get his nomination easily. ..if he wants the vote from the whole range of Republicans, many dems, and most independents, he needs to stick to the issues, stay out of the political cross-fire, act Presidential and stay on point. As a supporter, just keep asking the antagonize, what has Hilary ever done for this nation, not just zero, but she has damaged us and is clearly dangerous to our future as a nation! She is despicable and leave a wake of dead bodies literally and figuratively.

  • Seedman

    Be that as it may, one candidate will consistently receive over fifty per cent of the vote, now that the field has narrowed. Utah and Arizona will likely point to the eventual nominee.

  • Messenger

    “I had objected to the fact that we are a Trump cheerleader for awhile, but…”…yep, no need to object anymore, you are now open to cheer the evil machinations of the present establishment. It is written that “in the last days, there will be no secrets”, and your mask has comes down. You have always been a “chaperon” working in disguise for your real anti-Trump progressive socialist friends.

  • Jerry

    This was an inside Cruz people, trying to make Trump look bad

    • Gaylen H

      Try again, it was Trumps Campaign manager in the case of the attack on the other writer and the protestors are both admitted followers of Clinton and Sanders affiliated. They publically admitted to the violence and baiting. But do we really want a President that can’t keep it together in the heat of the moment, because the heat is only going to get worse!

      • Jerry

        I read these were insiders working for Breitbart, but they are actually Cruz people Michelle Fields, And these people doing this at Trumps venue are the problem Not Trump

      • Jerry

        Was it Sanders fault That the Black Lies matter crashed his venue, and made him go away

  • Luke

    It’s not Trump’s fault people act stupid, but it is easier to blame him than yourselves..typical liberal like views IMO..
    Trump is right that most media is dishonest and lies by omission..

    • Gaylen H

      It was his Campaign Manager who assaulted her, either own it or fire the guy. We don’t need a President who allows this type of behavior while representing our country, nor do we want a President that can’t keep it together in the heat of the moment, because the heat is only going to get worse!

      • Luke

        There was no evidence his manager did this, only the word of a reporter who believes she is above everyone else just like the rest of the dishonest and vile media..
        Anyone who comes toward Trump is going to get nailed like that idiot who got his ass clocked rushing Trump..

      • Danny Reagan

        Gaylen, I watched the tape, he did NOT touch her.

        • Rick Vitti

      • Rick Vitti

  • I Seigel

    Wow, conservatives with principles. How refreshing! You go Ben! And Michelle! And Jarrett and Kurt and Jordan!

    • Gaylen H

      Agreed….

    • Rick Vitti

      They are all PAID LIARS …take the time to watch the video, but then you will say that is was edited

      • I Seigel

        You’re saying this was a conspiracy, and the Breitbart people are all lying??!!?? And this comes from a guy who gives himself upvotes?!?!? HAH HAH HAH!!! I see you’re the only one giving yourself upvotes! HAHAHAHA!!!

  • Suzey

    This should not be surprising. Trump doesn’t allow any opposition at all.

    • Gaylen H

      …hard to believe other people don’t see this truth!! That’ll work so well in international affairs. NOT!
