Ex-Breitbart Reporter Moves to ‘Russian Payroll’

A former Breitbart News reporter has found a new job hosting a radio show for Sputnik, Russia’s propaganda radio outlet. “I’m on the Russian payroll now, when you work at Sputnik you’re being paid by the Russians,” Lee Stranahan bluntly told The Atlantic. “That’s what it is. I don’t have any qualms about it. Nothing about it really affects my position on stuff that I’ve had for years now.” Stranahan left Breitbart just last month in protest, alleging that the site’s D.C. editor, Matt Boyle, refused to let him cover the Trump White House.
