Bitterness and personal recriminations are splitting the Breitbart organization. Michelle Fields and Ben Shapiro resigned last night in the wake of their dissatisfaction over the handling of Fields’s allegation against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. The details of the incident remain obscure, and are under police investigation, but one fact is clear: one of the most effective conservative media outlets, the organization legacy of Andrew Breitbart, has been riven by disputes arising from the Trump candidacy.
In general this sort of bloodletting serves no one well save perhaps the Democrats, however in the grand scheme of things the GOP needed a wake up call at the very least.
As it stands now a third party may be needed as it is doubtful the old guard will give up their sinecures.
