On Sunday, the Breitbart News website posted details from a Hollywood Reporter story recounting Bannon’s phone conference with Breitbart international correspondents and with staff at Breitbart’s L.A. headquarters.
In the story, Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said Bannon was in good spirits, and said “there were cheers from the staff and congratulations all around.” Marlow said Bannon had expressed relief at leaving the White House and returning to the news business.
The site last year saw its ad revenue plummet in response to its support for Trump.
