Breitbart editor makes no secret about their ultimate goal.
At an Eagle Forum event for college students, Phyllis Schlafly Collegians D.C. Summit, Matt Boyle, Breitbart’s political editor, bragged that his publication’s end game is total elimination of the “mainstream media.”
Boyle: “The goal eventually is the full destruction and elimination of the entire mainstream media. We envision a day where CNN is no longer in business; we envision a day where The New York Times closes its doors. I think that day is possible, I think that we can get there.”
“But when that happens,” Boyle added, “the public still needs an information stream. And again, as much as we love Trump’s Twitter account, as much as we love the White House press releases and briefings and all that, there needs to be an independent and strong media in the United States, and that’s where we come in.”
Steven Bannon is one of Breitbart’s founding members.
Breitbart shared some more of what Boyle had to say to those in attendance in a blog post.
