Alex Marlow Career
According to CNN, however, “some former Breitbart employees say they believe Marlow privately harbors misgivings with the site’s direction. One former Breitbart reporter suggested that Marlow was the good cop to the bad cop played by Steve Bannon.”
Alex Marlow told Bloomberg Business that at Breitbart, “Our whole mindset is looking for these rolling narratives.” He said key narratives for the website include immigration, race riots, ISIS, traditional values, and Hillary Clinton.
He told The New York Times that “Our goal is not influence; it is reporting and highlighting stories important to grass roots conservatives. Our focus on issues like spending, trade and particularly immigration are a reflection of the fact that there are massive populations of center-right Americans who do not favor the policies most often associated with the Republican Party establishment.”
Talking to NBC News, Marlow denied that Breitbart is a “hate-site”, stating “that we’re consistently called anti-Semitic despite the fact that we are overwhelmingly staffed with Jews and are pro-Israel and pro-Jewish. That is fake news.”
