LOS ANGELES, CA – Following the February launch of Breitbart London and Breitbart Texas, the Breitbart News Network announced today the latest in its ongoing multi-year national and international expansion with the launch of Breitbart California. Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak will become Editor of Breitbart California. Jon Fleischman, the founder and publisher of the 2013 National Blogger Association State Level Blogger of the Year, the Flash Report, will serve as Breitbart California’s Politics Editor.
“For years, California has been written off by conservatives as too far past the point of return, but the truth is every single day there are stories worth telling about the successes of the conservative movement in California and the failures of the left-wing establishment,” said Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon. “Breitbart California is about telling not just those stories but showcasing the impact and influence the Golden State has in our culture, technology, and economy. From the growing libertarian movement at the heart of Silicon Valley to a Republican win at City Hall in San Diego, there is a fundamental shift taking shape and Breitbart News will be here to chronicle it.” …
“Andrew Breitbart and I grew up in Los Angeles, and even as kids, were proud Angelinos and Californians,” said Breitbart News President and CEO Larry Solov. “The well-being of this state, not to mention the Dodgers, was always near and dear to our hearts. As adults, we would often lament to each other, ‘How do you screw up the greatest place on earth?’ We’ll be examining that question and many others at Breitbart California, while never losing optimism that this state can still be a beacon and exemplar of freedom and prosperity. It’s with that optimism that we launch this new vertical from Los Angeles, where we founded Breitbart News.”
