Ferenstein: Why a Hillary Voter Is Writing for Breitbart

Gregory Ferenstein, who has contributed Tech articles to Breitbart News in the past, explains in Politico why he — as a Hillary-voting, San Francisco-dwelling, pro-free trade journalist — would write again for the outlet credited with the rise of Donald Trump’s populist-nationalist movement.

From Politico:

[A]s the election results poured in on November 8, I was forced to reflect on a very (very) difficult realization: Much of my work last year was, electorally speaking, worthless. I, evidently, needed to start writing for publications that were trusted by Trump supporters.

So, two weeks ago, I emailed my contacts at Breitbart News to tell them I would be happy to start contributing.

My reasoning is very simple: I believe we are living in a new political order, where populism is a permanent fixture in our democracy. I might vehemently disagree with some of the anti-immigration and militaristic beliefs that Trump used to excite his supporters. But if I want to persuade those supporters—and I do—I have to reach them on the platform where they are getting their ideas. In the meantime, I just might be persuaded a bit myself.
