The Breitbart News Network announced on Monday that Amanda House has joined the Washington, D.C., bureau as Deputy Political Editor.
House will work alongside the political reporting team with Washington Political Editor Matthew Boyle and help coordinate Breitbart News’ efforts to continue leading in the political journalism community. House and Boyle will manage Breitbart News’ Washington, D.C., bureau together, a team that includes dozens of top notch reporters and editors that are, according to NewsWhip’s latest analysis, the highest trafficked political news network worldwide on all of social media.
House joins Breitbart News from LifeZette, Laura Ingraham’s lifestyle website, where she served as Director of Editorial Operations & Director of AdOps. Prior to joining LifeZette, House was the Washington, D.C., Bureau Chief for One America News Network (OAN), a national cable news network featuring national and international headlines 24/7. She oversaw the network’s D.C.-based activity, including daily coverage from the U.S. Capitol and White House and daily political talk shows. Originally from Chesapeake, Virginia, Amanda received her bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from the University of Virginia.
“Breitbart continues to be a voice of the people for the people, and that’s why I am thrilled to be a part of this amazing team,” House said. “This year’s election is pivotal for our country’s trajectory, and I cannot wait to get rolling with driving the narrative with top notch investigative reporting.”
“Amanda represents everything the site stands for — tenacity, commitment, grit — she is an outstanding addition to the team,” Stephen K. Bannon, Breitbart News Executive Chairman, said.
“Adding Amanda is going to allow us to expand our scope and expedite the delivery of Breitbart News content to our growing audience,” Alex Marlow, Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief, said. “This is a big step forward for a team that is already ahead of the news cycle.”
“Amanda fits the Breitbart ethos — hard work, aggressive original journalism, and challenging the status quo,” Larry Solov, Breitbart News CEO, said. “She is a most welcomed addition to our political team.”
“As we gear up for the general election — the most intense of our lifetimes — we are pleased Amanda is coming aboard as our deputy political editor as we take a highly successful news team to the next level,” Boyle said. “She has done incredible work throughout her career, and we look forward to improving our efforts and intensifying our coverage of the demise of the permanent political class. We’re already the number one political reporting site in the world on social media, but that isn’t good enough: we must succeed in exposing the politicians and holding them accountable because too much depends on our success.”
