The JTA reports: Stephen Bannon recently called Breitbart News “the most pro-Israel site in the United States of America.” That will not change with Bannon leaving the far-right news website for the White House, according to Breitbart’s Jerusalem bureau chief.
Saying he shares a worldview with Bannon, President-elect Donald Trump’s chief White House strategist, Aaron Klein plans to expand the Israel operation, which staunchly backs the Jewish state’s political right wing. There is talk of moving into the Hebrew market.
“We’re here to counter the total bias of the mainstream media in coverage of Israel,” Klein, 38, said in an interview at his three-story apartment near this city’s beach. “We write for the American audience, a Western audience obviously at this point. I think a huge segment of Israelis also has a pretty [whetted] appetite for an outlet that isn’t controlled by the leftist media mafia.”
