Hillary Spokesman: Clinton Campaign Didn’t Appreciate ‘Profound’ Impact of the ‘Breitbart Effect’

by IAN MASON29 Mar 2017Brian Fallon, National Press Secretary for the failed Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, told audiences at Yale University Wednesday that what he called the “Breitbart effect” was a “profound” obstacle his team did not see coming.
“One of the realities that I don’t think was truly appreciated by our campaign was just how profound the Breitbart effect was in cultivating a standalone ecosystem in conservative media that very aggressively and successfully promoted certain stories and narratives we had a blind-spot for during the campaign,” Fallon said.
Fallon offered Breitbart News a grudging respect as he expressed his disappointment that his campaign’s attacks on Trump did not have the devastating effect he might have hoped for in another era. “The right has innovated a really good infrastructure,” he said, “that not only insulated Donald Trump from criticism that should be driving his numbers down, but has brought the conversation to the right.”
