The Conservative Media Split

Hosted by

Donald Trump has split the Republican Party. He’s also split the conservative media. Personalities like Rush Limbaugh praise him, while Glenn Beck and Fox News bash him.

In the latest dustup, several executives and journalists at the right-wing site Breitbart News have resigned in the past week. They say the site has turned into propaganda for Trump. They also claim the organization abandoned one of its own reporters, who’s accusing Trump’s campaign manager of violently shoving her at an event. But did the same media machine now in turmoil over Trump also help create him?
