Jonathan Strong Named Washington Editor for Breitbart News

bnnBreitbart News Network today announced Jonathan Strong as Washington Editor. In this role, Strong will direct all of Breitbart’s political coverage including Big Government while helping the organization continue its aggressive expansion.

Most recently, Strong was a political reporter for National Review, and prior to that covered the House of Representatives for Roll Call, politics for the Daily Caller and environmental issues for Inside EPA.

Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow believes the addition of Strong is a turning point for Breitbart’s political coverage, “As we look to this year’s mid-term elections and the 2016 Presidential campaign, having someone with Strong’s experience and judgment to work with reporters like Matthew Boyle, Kerry Pickett and Tony Lee will bring a new dimension of focus and quality to our already effective political coverage.”

Current Washington Editor Michael Flynn will serve as the Political Director of a new Super PAC called the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, while remaining a contributor.

Join us in offering Strong a big Fishbowl congrats in this new endeavor!

And here is what he “exclusively” said to Breitbart News sometime later (emphasis added), while his earlier tweet was on its way to being retweeted some 700 times and picked up (and almost universally mocked) by news outlets everywhere:

Boyle Unloads On Holiday Parties: ‘Get Your Shit Together And Get Back To Work’

Breitbart NewsMatthew Boyle proved during his tenure at The Daily Caller that he’s a bit of a loose cannon as far as being a part of D.C.’s press corp. goes.

His news-gathering techniques demonstrated a certain contempt for the traditional way things work in the city; like the time he told a DNC spokesman if he didn’t respond to questions by deadline, he would essentially make up the answers.

In his latest demonstration of just how much he despises the D.C. culture., often viewed as exceedingly insular, Boyle posted a screed on Facebook against the most least threatening Washington feature of all: holiday parties.

“I can’t stand the damned D.C. holiday party circuit,” Boyle wrote on his own Facebook Wednesday. “It’s another example of everything that’s wrong with the Washington Culture.”
