Breitbart reporter takes job with Russian propaganda network


Former Breitbart investigative journalist, Lee Stranahan, quit his job with the news outlet in March and announced he has taken a position with Russian radio show, Sputnik.

“I’m on the Russian payroll now; when you work at Sputnik you’re being paid by the Russians,” Stranahan 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.”

Sputnik is a radio broadcast created by Rossiya Segodnya, a Russian government-controlled news agency. Currently, the FBI is investigating whether or not the news outlet, along with others, had any part in Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Stranahan said he plans to launch a conservative vs. liberal debate program, called “Fault Lines with Nixon and Stranahan” on the radio network.

“There [are] no restrictions on what I can say, what I can do, anything like that,” Stranahan said. “I’m not easily controllable.”

Stranahan alleges Breitbart’s Washington political editor, Matthew Boyle, took him off of White House press briefings, which led to his decision to leave.
