Breitbart News, Donad Trump's Pravda Is In Crisis

There SEEMS to be trouble in alternative-fact land!!!



And that’s the problem Breitbart faces today, a problem similar to the one plaguing the Trump administration: Being an outsider works only when you’re on the outside.


A PROTEST network that criticizes the government ISNT very effective when THEIR people are IN the government!

I've been SAYING this...you're not "Alternative" or "outsiders" when you are IN power. You can't be the rebel HERO when you become the EMPIRE. You aren't the Jedi hero when you control the House, Senate, and White House.

YOU, have become the mainstream!




But much like Trump himself, Breitbart News may have expended too much energy on gloating. Breitbart has fallen to 63rd in Alexa’s rankings (its ranking was actually much lower, in the 270s, but after Vanity Fair published that figure, Breitbart complained to Alexa and had its ranking somehow recalibrated). SimilarWeb, a company that uses Google Analytics to analyze web browsing patterns, found that Breitbart had 128 million total visits in November, but that the number has since dropped to 78 million total visits in April.


MAYBE people are realizing that this "outsider" and "alternative" thing is OVER and it was all an ACT?


Advertisers are pulling OUT!!



The site’s gravest problem may be the wholesale flight of advertisers, who have been pressured by anti-Trump forces to disassociate themselves from any outlet friendly to his administration. "Breitbart ads plummet nearly 90 percent in three months as Trump’s troubles mount," read the headline of a Digiday story by Lucia Moses that detailed the site's deepening financial woes.


Advertisers SPEND a LOT of money trying to figure out WHAT their customers WANT. . . . .

And apparently, they DONT want Trump propaganda!


A lack of LEADERSHIP seems be partially to blame? Rats have JUMPED ship maybe??



Breitbart can’t pivot away from right-wing click-bait to sober, deeply reported news any more than Trump can pivot away from paranoid tweets, self-pitying broadsides against the media and weekends at Mar-a-Lago. Trump, at least, has daughter Ivanka to keep him in check, or so they say. With Bannon gone, it’s hard to see anyone at the Breitbart Embassy overseeing the kind of radical editorial overhaul that would make Breitbart more like the Journal and less like World Net Daily.


And it's not JUST Breitbart...alt-right media in GENERAL is taking a hit. People are REALIZING they're the mainstream themselves now, AND becoming disillusioned!!!



This is true not only of Breitbart but of an entire right-wing media ecosystem still largely unwilling to call out Trump on the plainly unrealistic promises he made. Sustained illusion thus becomes the best antidote to creeping disillusion.


Can alt-right media KEEP pretending they are OUTSIDERS forever???

Might be because their major draw Milo left... Not the only reason but a contributing factor.

The only thing REALLY keeping them AFLOAT is that Mercer Family money. You know, those BILLIONAIRE elites that propped up the Trump campaign and hired Cambridge Analyitica to brainwash people on social media?

Milo left because he saw the violent, racist, antisemitic hate speech coming from the Bannon contingent.

Thank God we now have a real man like Steve Bannon advising the President.

You mean I get to be all non standout-y and boring and middle of the road just enjoying little bits of boredom and stability?

-THANK GOD-.

On with the comics and blurbs about cryptids.

I think they misread the room. I imagine their prediction was that Trump would perform more as a suave maverick that kicked people in the balls while doing amazing things for his supporters. Instead, he rejuvenated the swamp, cuddled with the bad guys, and hasn't given any sort of clear input about the solutions he promised.

It leaves Breitbart in an awkward place because they are left with a dilemma: either abandon Trump propaganda and stay "anti-establishment" or keep being his media friend and hope for enough Trump sycophant hold-outs to financially survive.

WELL...

Remember how Trump said he knew how "pay to play"' worked?

He's DOING it himself now. It's who he is. You can't expect a wild animal to NOT be a wild animal.

I think the honeymoon is OVER and reality is settling IN.

Didn't Grover Nordquist say the GOP just needed a POTUS that had working HANDS (no mention of size) to work a PEN?

"Their" identity?
How many anti Trump threads have you posted in the last, oh, let's say, half hour or so? You do know the definition of hypocrite, right?

I enjoy MANY other things.

Politics is a MEANS to an END for one of them. The hand that POKES the berry bush doesn't NEED to be washed.
