No one is surprised. Except maybe Facebook, which clearly spent 2016 entirely focused on cashing checks rather than noting their site was being taken over by Republi-Russians. Business Insider:
In a message to Bannon, the conservative Family Research Council's Chris Gacek passed along a job application at Facebook-owned messaging platform Whatsapp, and suggested that it may be "perfect for Breitbart to flood the zone with candidates of all stripes who will report back to you/Milo with INTEL about the job application process."
"Can u get on this," Bannon asked Yiannopoulos, who forwarded the message to his research team.
One researcher voiced skepticism, saying it "seems difficult to do quietly without them becoming aware of efforts."
Wow, Family Research Council, Steve Bannon, and MILO? Future poster boys for the "Andrew Breitbart Wing of Dante's Antenora" sure are busy!
Yet another reason for making sure Democrats control the Congress in 2018.
UPDATE: Apparently the story was broken by Buzzfeed. Somebody leaked Bannon emails to Buzzfeed. Dang, is this White House in trouble.
