On Episode 21 of War Room: Impeachment, host Stephen K. Bannon confirms rumors regarding his interest in purchasing The Daily Telegraph.
Bannon states: “A certain Stephen K. Bannon is actually looking at purchasing the Daily Telegraph which is supposedly for sale from the Barclay family. We don’t know that yet. There seems to be a little controversy there.”
In recent years, the establishment conservative outlet has failed to represent the voice of the populist right. Bannon points to its coverage of Brexit, noting how outlets like Breitbart, where co-host Raheem Kassam served as editor in chief of the London bureau, were more supportive:
“Nigel said the day after Brexit, if Breitbart London had not existed, with how weak the Daily Telegraph had gotten, there would not be a Brexit.”
