Steve Bannon Has Resigned from Breitbart News

Far-right news site Breitbart announced that Steve Bannon, its executive chairman, is stepping down.

Breitbart CEO Larry Solov wrote, “Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish.”

Bannon's swift fall from grace in conservative circles comes after the publication of Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

The book portrays Bannon as a manipulative extremist who loathed Trump's children and used President Trump as a vehicle to advance a radical political agenda while serving as White House chief strategist.

Bannon tried to contain the controversy by issuing a lengthy statement claiming he was misrepresented in the book.

Trump blasted Bannon after initial reports of the book's contents were published, calling him "Sloppy Steve" and claiming he had "lost his mind."
