Hillary Clinton has a new target in her campaign against Donald Trump: Breitbart News. Her goal is not just to use Breitbart as a political foil, but to shut the site down entirely.
Deputy communications director Christina Reynolds sent a fundraising email earlier this week claiming that while other conservative news outlets had a “right to exist,” Breitbart News did not.
And on Thursday, Clinton will follow up that message in Reno with a speech against the “alt-right,” which Breitbart News has occasionally covered. The effort evokes Saul Alinsky — who was the subject of Clinton’s thesis at Wellesley — at his worst: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
