WorldNetDaily Still Chasing Down Andrew Breitbart Conspiracy Theories

Despite the fact that Steve Bannon, a filmmaker and executive chairman of the Breitbart News Network, has appealed to website WorldNetDaily to stop pursuing Andrew Breitbart death conspiracy theories, contributor Jerome R. Corsi goes down that road again. Bear in mind that the title of Corsi’s latest book is Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate?


Along with what Corsi deems death by “suspicious causes” of a 61-year-old photographic technician at the LA Coroner’s office the day the preliminary Breitbart autopsy report was released, there is also the matter of 26-year-old Christopher Lasseter.

Breitbart.com Retools Its Management Team

Breitbart.com is doing its best to stay relevant in the face of the death of its charismatic founder Andrew Breitbart. Politico reports that the conservative web network has retooled its management team. Politico reports that former Breitbart News Network board member Steve Bannon has been appointed executive chairman of the organization, while former president and COO Laurence Solov has taken over Breitbart’s role as CEO.

“We are continuing,” Solov told Politico. “Andrew and I had a vision for this company. Andrew was very clear with this vision, and I shared this vision, and I’m going to make sure that the company continues to pursue it.”

Conservative media is big money. No shortage of aspiring oligarchs looking to shell out for self-serving news. So we’re pretty confident the site will do just fine financially. Whether or not they can have the same cultural impact without Breitbart is an open question.
