If you were one of the few who believed former grifter, pimp, pornographer, con-artist and Breitbart Lead Investigative Journalist Lee Stranahan had a remaining scruple, you can abandon that quaint notion.
THE RAW STORY reports that Comrade Stranahan has gone Full Rooskie!
Former Breitbart News investigative reporter Lee Stranahan is launching a radio show for Sputnik, a news organization owned and operated by the Russian government, the Atlantic reports.
“I’m on the Russian payroll now, when you work at Sputnik you’re being paid by the Russians,” Stranahan told the Atlantic’s Rosie Gray. “That’s what it is. I don’t have any qualms about it. Nothing about it really affects my position on stuff that I’ve had for years now.”
In a series of Twitter posts Wednesday, Stranahan promoted his new Sputnik radio show, a Crossfire-style debate show called “Fault Lines with [Garland] Nixon and Stranahan.” Stranahan promises the show, which launches Monday, will be “original, provocative and entertaining.”
As Gray reports, Stranahan quit Breitbart last month after he claimed he was prevented from covering the White House. He said the upside of working with Sputnik is the freedom that comes from working with a Russian propaganda network.
“There’s no restrictions on what I can say, what I can do, anything like that,” Stranahan said. “I’m not easily controllable.”
Stranahan will say what his Russian controllers want him to say. He will side with America’s chief adversary in these dangerous times when Russia is encouraging Syria to use chemical weapons on Syrian babies.
Who knows, maybe Lee Iscariot can put in a good word for Kim Jong Un when he nukes Tokyo.
Still checking on the agreed-upon salary, 30 pieces of silver.
