Reclusive crackpot billionaire and Martian sleeper cell, Rebekah Mercer --
-- yanked the one and only leash which actually makes a difference in the corporate media. Which can actually rearrange the priorities and power structures inside virtually every corporate media enterprise in America from NPR to The Breitbart Collective,
She cut off Steve Bannon's allowance.
From Time magazine:
Steve Bannon Just Lost Big Financial Backer Rebekah MercerSteve Bannon has lost the support of his most prominent backer, conservative billionaire Rebekah Mercer.Mercer, who typically stays out of the public eye, told the Washington Post on Thursday that she has not spoken to Bannon in months and that she stands behind President Donald Trump as he feuds with his former adviser.“I support President Trump and the platform upon which he was elected,” Mercer said in the rare statement. “My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements.”...
It's the money, kids. It's nothing but the money.
With a billionaire stake-horsing him, Bannon became the senior advisor to the most powerful man on Earth, co-equal with the White House Chief of Staff.
Without a billionaire writing checks, Bannon is just another slovenly, bugfuck wingnut ruining another family Thanksgiving dinner.
Behold, a Tip Jar!
