Bannon: Breitbart is More ‘Pro-Jewish’ Than The Forward

Steve Bannon thinks that his “alt-right”-promoting website Breitbart is “the most pro-Jewish site of any news site, and I include The Forward in that.”

Speaking on Breitbart’s radio show, Bannon said that the website he runs defends “young Jewish kids on college campuses” from anti-Semitism.

Bannon didn’t say why he had singled out The Forward among the dozens of Jewish news websites. His swipe at the publication came a day after he addressed the annual dinner of the Zionist Organization of America, at which there was much public criticism of The Forward.

Earlier this year, The Forward exposed ties between Bannon ally Sebastian Gorka and a far-right Hungarian group founded by the Nazis.
