Mainstream media organizations led by The Washington Post are raising alarms about the $376,000 Steve Bannon received from a nonprofit investigative news organization called the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) while he served as executive chairman of Breitbart News Network.
Bannon, now senior advisor to President-elect Donald Trump, has been a lightning rod for liberal media and progressive activist groups since he joined the Republican’s campaign in August 2016. The title of a Nov. 15 New York Times editorial about Bannon even called him “Steve ‘Turn on Hate’ Bannon.”
Washington Post reporter Robert O’Harrow’s Wednesday story on Bannon’s relationship with GAI — which Bannon helped found in 2012, serving as its chairman — and Breitbart, withheld some key facts..
Including Wednesday’s story, O’Harrow’s byline has appeared on eight negative articles on Trump since Jan. 18.
