Breitbart Preparing for Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit Against Media Outlet That Called Them a 'White Nationalist' Website

The media has had a field day digging into Stephen Bannon's background after Trump appointed him to his White House cabinet. Journalists have been quick to quote those who argue that Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, is an inappropriate choice for the White House because Breitbart has often espoused "alt-right" and "anti-semitic" views. 

Breitbart News is now drafting a lawsuit against a "major media company" after the accusations, according to The Hill.

"Breitbart News Network, a pro-America, conservative website, is preparing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against a major media company for its baseless and defamatory claim that Breitbart News is a ‘white nationalist website,’” the statement reads.

Considering how many networks have been reporting on Bannon's supposedly controversial background, the list of defendants could be endless. Yet, considering that Brian Stelter did not even blink when he called Breitbart a "white nationalist" website over the weekend, CNN would have to be the frontrunner.

No word yet on when the suit will be filed.
