Report: Breitbart Staffers Told They Can’t Criticize Jared Kushner Anymore
Senior editors at pro-Trump website Breitbart News have instructed staff members to stop writing critical stories of Jared Kushner, sources tell Business Insider.
Kushner, son-in-law and adviser to President Trump, has clashed recently with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, the former CEO of Breitbart News. (RELATED: Jared Kushner Played Key Role In Causing Trump’s Manafort Problem)
The New York Times previously reported that “Kushner allies have also raised the issue with the president of the increasingly unflattering coverage that Mr. Kushner is receiving from Breitbart News.”
Trump reportedly told the populist Bannon and the more moderate Kushner to “work this out” after the pair’s feud was repeatedly dragged out into the press, according to the Times.
Breitbart ran stories critical of Kushner before Trump reportedly ordered the ceasefire.
