As mainstream media sputters in ratings and public trust, underground media is starting to rise. Quickly.
New numbers indicate that Breitbart News’ traffic for the first 5 months of 2017 is up 59% over the same period in 2016.
More shockingly, the website of the established liberal magazine Newsweek is ranked over 600 places below Breitbart.com in popularity rating over the past year.
It’s an ironic twist, after a Newsweek story this month highlighted the influence that sites like Breitbart had over the 2016 Presidential election.
Breitbart’s Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow has also been invited to guest-appear on Real Time With Bill Maher this Friday.
Given the circumstances, that can only be described as truly bizarre television.
