From The New York Times:
Bannon Made Millions in Shaping Right-Wing Thought
The personal wealth and holdings of President Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, were detailed for the first time on Friday in a filing that showed a large chunk of his income coming from right-leaning political news, film and consulting companies....Mr. Bannon disclosed more than $500,000 in income from entities linked to the hedge fund manager Robert Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah Mercer, including $191,000 from the right-leaning media outlet Breitbart News, $125,333 from a data firm called Cambridge Analytica and more than $60,000 from the Government Accountability Institute....The Mercers are major Republican donors who were intimately involved in the shake-up of the Trump campaign last year that led to Mr. Bannon’s installment as its chief executive.However, the most valuable asset listed on Mr. Bannon’s disclosure forms was Bannon Strategic Advisors Inc., a privately held consulting firm that was valued at $5 million to $25 million. In addition, Mr. Bannon held bank accounts valued at up to $2.25 million, and rental real estate worth as much as $10.5 million....The disclosure suggests that Bannon Strategic Advisors served as an umbrella company for receiving fees he earned from interests in other companies such as Breitbart News, Cambridge Analytica and Glittering Steel, a company that produced the documentary “Clinton Cash,” on which Ms. Mercer served as an executive producer, as well as ads for Republican candidates...
Feeding the Pig People the lies and conspiracies they crave has always been a reliable path to wealth and power.
And now that path has finally led to the White House.
And every step along the way there was the ragged and reviled Left, with no holding companies or advisory groups or production companies, warning frantically that this would all come to tears.
Armed only with the truth, telling a story that was frightening and that almost no one wanted to hear.
Behold, a Tip Jar!
