Tuesday, Fox News released a statement made by Stephen K. Bannon about a highly public slight. The New Yorker had both announced Bannon’s appearance at an event in October and hours later dis-invited him on social media, after calls of anger from the left and high profile Democrats about Bannon’s appearance.
From Fox News:
David Remnick, the editor of the New Yorker, said on Monday that the magazine would take back its invitation to Steve Bannon after threats from liberal speakers who refused to share the stage with the ex-Trump aide.
In an email statement to the Associated Press, Bannon wrote: “After being contacted several months ago and with seven weeks of continual requests for this event, I accepted The New Yorker’s invitation with no thought of an honorarium.”
“The reason for my acceptance was simple: I would be facing one of the most fearless journalists of his generation. In what I would call a defining moment, David Remnick showed he was gutless when confronted by the howling online mob,” he added.
