How can a mainstream website go without ad revenue?
The website best known for shilling for fuhrer Donald J. Trump is facing a global backlash.
Breitbart has been on the offensive. They have taken the narrative to "fight back" against leftists who want to silence them. The website is home to the gay white extremist Milo Yiannopoulos, former baseball pitcher Curt Schilling, and Trump advisor Steven K. Bannon. Each of these agitators have ties to White extremists. And now they're paying the price for it.
The company is rattled by the recent drop of advertising.
Buzzfeed reports that one of the world's biggest ad-buying networks, Omnicom, has instructed its staff to pull advertising from the website on behalf of its biggest clients.
The website founded by the late conservative agitator Andrew Breitbart became the market for all things White extremist. Many of the stories often featured on the website are fringe and kookspiracy in nature.
Omnicon got an internal memo saying that many of the global industries like McDonald's, Kellogg's, Apple, Unilever, Walmart and Google cited social media activists Sleeping Giants as a reason to pull.
According to the article, Breitbart losing its ad revenue on the grounds of racism.
"Although the content [on Breitbart] is pretty unpalatable for most, it isn't illegal or prohibited by most exchanges such as Google's [Google Display Network]."
"Many of our global clients have already requested that we block this sit on our activity."
In layman's terms, Breitbart is being blacklisted. Having click bait is good, but having ad revenue for it would be a whole lot profitable.
Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Breitbart and Milo Yiannopoulos have been labeled "too controversial" for advertisers. They constantly suffered major losses in syndication, ad revenue and popularity,
If it's possible could progressive activism target Sean "Softball" Hannity, Alex Jones, Matt Drudge, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, and Tomi Lahren's advertisers?
