Fox Business Reporting Milo Could Be Fired From Breitbart Today After CPAC Backlash (BOOK DEAL CANCELLED)

Fox Business Reporting Milo Could Be Fired From Breitbart Today After CPAC Backlash (BOOK DEAL CANCELLED)

Take this with a grain of salt, but Fox Business and Charlie Gasperino are reporting that Milo Yiannopoulos could be fired from Breitbart by the end of the day over the backlash from his comments in a January 2016 podcast with the Drunken Peasants (he also had a controversial appearance on Joe Rogan’s show, which has come up as well). He was already disinvited from CPAC earlier this afternoon.

Link to full story

Milo Yiannopoulos, the provocative conservative journalist who is often portrayed as a champion of the far-right, is facing possible dismissal from his employer Breitbart News over comments he once made about underage sex, the Fox Business Network has learned.

His possible dismissal from Breitbart could come by the end of the day, according to people at the Conservative website. Earlier today, Yiannopoulos was rescinded his invitation to speak at the upcoming gathering of the Conservative Political Action Committee.

Yiannopoulos’s title is technology editor for Breitbart, but he is best known for his political statements on social media and on television. Indeed his CPAC invitation drew outrage even from some conservatives given Yiannopoulos’s past statements about race, sexuality and other issues.

Breitbart has consistently defended Yiannopoulos’s statements, and internally there is a fierce debate over whether he should remain with the website even with his latest comments.

Still, Breitbart has so far remained quiet after videos emerged Monday morning where Yiannopoulos seemed to defend pedophilia; the move sparked outrage and caused CPAC to rescind its speaking invitation.

MILO ON LIVE NOW…

 

Hi

Posted by Milo Yiannopoulos on Monday, February 20, 2017

 

More on this as it comes in, including some of my thoughts…

I guess the thing that’s taking me by surprise (and it seems to have taken Milo by surprise as well) is that these comments have been well known to people in my orbit for quite some time. I had seen them circulated during many attempts to discredit Milo and whatever work he happened to be doing at the time. The difference here is that the masses aren’t as plugged in to every single thing that goes on. Most people had never been exposed to these controversial statements on the nature of gay relationships between older men and younger boys. I think Milo has tried to explain things a little bit better over the last 24 hours, but the media storm is going at 150 miles per hour and it’s very hard to beat that sort of thing back.

All that being said, I think it would be a mistake for Breitbart to dismiss him at this point. First off, it looks like a reaction to a media-created firestorm. I understand a lot of this is coming from both the left and the right, but bowing down at this point seems to go against everything Breitbart stands for when it comes to this sort of thing. I’m not privy to any insider information, so I can’t say what will happen one way or the other. Still, I would be very surprised if Milo is in fact fired.

Only time will tell, though. I’ll keep updating this post throughout the day.

 

UPDATE: Rumors of staff walkout at Breitbart if Milo stays on…

 

UPDATE II: Book deal cancelled…

 

UPDATE III: I can neither confirm, nor deny, this report. However, I always bring you what’s being said…so here you go. If Milo addresses these allegations, I will update this post with his response immediately.

Keep in mind, this is hearsay and as such, it can only be taken as a rumor at this point. I want to be clear that I am giving Milo the benefit of the doubt. This footage would need to be brought forward in order for anything to be confirmed. This seems to be where his critics are headed, though. As such, I brought you the allegation. 

We at ARC Media have a reliable source confirming that Rebel Pundit‘s claim that video footage exists of Milo Yiannopoulos in bed with multiple adolescent males after having groomed them with alcohol.

After the Rebel Pundit camera crew observed this they voiced their disapproval of Yiannopoulos’ behavior, giving him an ultimatum to cease providing the youths with alcohol or they would be unable to film the show.

After this ultimatum Yiannopoulos refused to desist with his actions and continued his inappropriate activities with the youths, forcing the camera crew to walk off the set. This should come as little surprise to those familiar with Yianopolous’ depraved nature, he attempted to justify his own sexual molestation on The Joe Rogan Experience 820 by a priest when he was just 13 years old.

He further claimed that he had not been the victim of an assault and that the priest in question was not at fault. He further then tried to convince Joe Rogan the host that it was nothing strange and quite normal for adults to be attracted to children and tried to get Mr Rogan to agree that 15 year old’s were attractive and there was nothing wrong with finding them so.

    So this info was public for over a year, but only NOW do they start to freak out, LMAO!!!

  • Renaissance_nerd

    Milo definitely chose his words poorly, I think he should stop the damage control and do what our president did with the “grab them by the pussy” remark.

    Trump came on national TV and said “Yes I said it, it was wrong, i’m sorry” then moved on with his life. I think Milo should do the same thing.

  • MKFenris

    Milo could start his own outlet. If they want him gone, he’ll just build his own empire to shut them up.

  • n8vb8

    That’s some convenient timing, I have to say. Right between Maher and CPAC, what a coincidence. Add in certain e-celebs smelling blood in the water, toss in their fanbases of thirsty tranny-chasers and my twitter feed is now 100% pure cancer.

    • Peter Venkman

      Not just them. Jonah Goldberg, the NRO columnist who whined about the alt right for two years now, is crowing at these latest developments. Crusty old Jonah just can’t wait until the alt-right is disbanded, Trump is removed from office, and he can go back to believing anyone takes him seriously.

  • Maintenance Renegade

    Now is not the time to give the media ANYTHING, they’re the enemy and every one of their tantrums should be responded to with a raised middle finger. Firing Milo would be an unacceptable sign of weakness.

  • Danlantic

    World Net Daily is anti-gay and also hates Ann Coulter because she is not.

    The age of consent is 16 in England. Milo said he had an affair with a 29 year old when he was 17.

    While the various American states have varying ages of consent, the US imposes a 16 year old limit on its sex tourists. 40 of the 50 American states have a limit of 16 or 17.

    I have not heard the video because if this computer has sound working it has a microphone working, too.

    Here is a Fox News link about it which Yahoo search gave me (and DuckDuckGo and Google failed):

    This is CPAC’s own Twitter feed on the matter:

  • One-Eye

    The only mistake Milo made was thinking he could combine commentary with humour in today’s fake news culture.

    The Rogan clip was completely innocuous. It’s a comedy podcast and he was making light of his early sexual experiences. Nothing more.

    Meanwhile, Salon openly advocated for pedos and nothing is said.

    • Silence Dogood

      Exactly! How the fuck does Salon and it’s staff get to allow a self confessed pedophile to write articles as well as submit their own articles attempting to normalize pedophilia and get no shit over it from the MSM? Pure hypocrisy.

    • Peter Venkman

      “The others guys did it too!” isn’t a compelling argument, and it never works. Salon is a joke of a magazine, the last thing anyone should want is being compared to the idiots there.
      I don’t know about the Rogan clip, but the other one was not a smart thing to say, which is why Milo won’t be speaking at CPAC and no longer has a book deal.
      Now there are reports that Breitbart management is weighing his future. I don’t know how much stock to put in those reports, but the issue here is that he could harm the company’s bottom line at a time when it’s also dealing with advertisers caving to left-wing pressure and refusing to take out ad space on the site.

    • Maintenance Renegade

      I’m going to take some time and examine the material that’s actually been cited and published so far, however that all these outlets are generally choosing to describe this material in their own words rather than just publishing it makes me immediately suspicious.

      It all stinks of a timed and coordinated attack. They were all ready to go with coordinated hitpieces based off a year old interview on a holiday during a lull in the news cycle and just after Milo’s fame had increased following the Berekely riots and Maher appearance. That being said we should have all seen this coming and it does illustrate Milo’s very real weaknesses and flaws when he’s politically elevated beyond his function as a professional troll.

      I would advise everyone here to seek out whatever source material actually emerges, ignore the shrieking and reconvene in about a week once we know what’s really going on.

    • Danlantic

      Salon and Cracked.

      Cracked had a listicle about so-called misconceptions about pedophiles.

  • Iso

    That will be a feather in Randi’s nest for her to crow about, that’s for sure! She’ll basically have enough ammunition to keep herself going off of Patreon Bux for ages now thanks to this.

  • Unbelievable. Someone who was molested as a 13 year old gets piled on as supporting paeodophilia. even though he’s not a paedophile, despises paedophiles and has outed 3 of them.

    It’s enough to return me to my old socialist belief that conservatives are actually as thick as pigshit. (Not really, but this abject display of moral cowardice pisses me off.)

    • Iso

      Some of the Conservative Sites I seen since the CPAC announcement are scary, bible thumping Anti-Gays saying “Milo will be judged for his Sins” and he had no place giving a speech. (Admittedly I forgotten how Religion and Politics mixed in the States since I live in the UK. You kind of forget about it from time to time.)

    • Typical

      No, some are. It’s pathetic. Which is why I switched to libertarian.

      • Marigold

        Conservatives and leftists are cut from the same cloth of cuck!

  • Chicago Joe

    Queue the shitlibs extrapolating the entire right with Milo’s beliefs and actions.

    ….of course we all know that anything a Leftist does can’t be used against all of the Left though :^)

  • Silence Dogood

    Aww… I feel bad for Milo. This is a lot like what happened to PewDiePie imo. Fucking media twisting things out of context to attack someone they don’t like. Despicable.

    • StephaneDumas

      I got the feeling then that’ll turn against the media like a boomerang.

  • ExiledV2

    So, wait a sec. He saw stat rape at a party and didn’t report it to the cops? What’s all that about?

  • Peter Venkman

    About a year and a half or two years ago, right around the time Ralph started calling Yiannopolous “Master Milo” and doing the Dance of Joy any time he got a like or acknowledgment from Yiannopolous on Twitter, like a dog begging for scraps from his owner, I posted warning you guys about the dangers of putting people like him on a platform.

    Not just Milo, but others as well, including Lizzy Finnegan (how thirsty can you guys be?) and that other woman who’s Mike Cernovich’s plaything, as well as various others big-upped by the retard fringe of the right.

    I didn’t expect anyone to listen, and you didn’t. But what I posted then is just as relevant today — Milo is not interested in conservatism or free speech, he isn’t a champion of the cause. He’s only interested in pursuing fame through whatever means necessary, and if tomorrow Milo thought he could double his audience by “converting” to liberalism, he’d be checking privilege and screaming about cultural appropriation in a millisecond.

    This is how today happened, how he got disinvited from CPAC, how he lost his book deal, and how (if the reports are to be believed) he’s on thin ice at Breitbart. He wasn’t championing free speech or conservatism, he was saying increasingly outrageous things to generate headlines and increase his profile. No one made him do that.

    Does that mean he deserved this? No. Does that mean this isn’t a concerted effort by people who hate him? Of course not. Milo got thrown under the bus. But the point still stands, he was never a good spokesman for any kind of movement.

    • Typical

      Thing is, you can use a tool as long as it’s useful, Milo can be dropped and another used in his stead.

      • Peter Venkman

        But not completely. For better or worse, Milo was the face of the “alt-right” (a term I never liked anyway), and you can be absolutely certain his missteps will be used in an attempt to discredit conservatism in general.

        • Typical

          Which is why we can’t let them win. You leave BB, their traffic goes down, libs win. You drop milo, we lose a weapon.

    • Quise

      Well said.

      • Peter Venkman

        Thank you, good sir.

  • Toastrider

    Yeah, this is Double Plus Ungood. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is going to trip the instinctive disgust/rage quite like pedophilia — and while Milo might not have meant it that way, he came off as defending it initially. And that, as they say, is the ball game.

    Oh, there’s hypocrisy abounding — remember, the Hollyweird cult was more than happy to give Roman Polanski plaudits despite him fleeing the country on a statutory rape charge. But it won’t save Milo.

    I feel sorry for him, to be honest. But the Internet never forgets, and whether you’re offering up humorous commentary on your early sex life, or sending nudes to your high school boyfriend… it always comes back to haunt you.

  • Botiemaster

    I find it incredibly difficult to call young adults of 14 or older “children”. With that said, I find it incredibly difficult to find a young adult attractive when full grown women are walking around. With that said, we are going to have a field day with trashing the left as they attack milo for the very things they are guilty of. With that said, I’ve seen less shit happen to worse people that done worse things than what is happening to milo right now. Lost book deal. Possibly lost job. Inappropriate behavior which is like, unless he fucked those boys in that very bed right then and there, people should grow some balls. It’s a slap on the wrist offense, not capital punishment. Assuming the shit ever happened.

    Well, maybe strong discipline, just certainly not JHC SHUT IT DOWN reactions.

  • Mr0303

    There is no way that Breitbart will fire Milo over fake news.

    Simon & Schuster on the other hand are utter morons for cancelling one of the most preordered books on the internet. I still hope that the book will come out in some form.

  • Mr0303

    For anyone who hasn’t seen it, here’s Milo’s statement regarding all these allegations:

  • Alex Johnson
  • grayjohn

    Out of context hit peices are fake news too. Milo is causing too much trouble for the powers that be and the fake education system too. Fake news, fake education, what’s next?

  • RockstarRepublic

    First the hit piece on Felix (pewdiepie) and now Milo, the establishment media is going for the jugular.

  • David Flory

    This sudden outrage at Milo is more than a bit disingenuous. His attitudes towards pederasty are fairly mainstream among homosexuals.

  • Quise

    It’s funny watching alt-right snowflakes backtrack and try to disavow Milo while also not disavowing him. After all the RIGHTFUL rage at ANY pedophile (the lowest, scummiest thing that an adult be), watching people try to rationalize Milo’s actions and words is absolutely hilarious. I would expect Ralph to be a bit stronger in his write up considering all the other disgusting pedos that he has eviscerated on this very site.

    Hypocrisy, the alt-right’s MO.

  • tz1

    As to the ARC media, they said they haven’t seen the video (and don’t want a copy), but the “ultra reliable source” will share it with law enforcement? How long did he have it, if it was real, why wait until now?

    During the campaign, there was a similar “we have a tape of Trump worse than the Bush tape”, or of him doing worse when he was on the Apprentice:

  • Marigold

    This is just going to embolden Milo, and I still look forward to his book.
