Jared Kushner’s Former Employee Creating ‘The Breitbart Of The Left’

A group of digital reporters are aiming to create a “Breitbart of the left” to challenge the Trump administration - and they are being led by a former employee of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser.

Elizabeth Spiers, a former editor-in-chief of the Kushner-owned New York Observer newspaper, is attempting to raise funds to create a new left-wing news website, Buzzfeed reported Wednesday. Spiers wrote in The Washington Post in March that her experience working under Kushner had convinced her that he was unfit to serve in his current position.

“When I worked for him, I didn’t think he had a realistic view of his own capabilities since, like his father-in-law, he seemed to view his wealth and its concomitant accoutrements as rewards for his personal success in business, and not something he would have had in any case,” she wrote in March.
