On this week’s episode:
Breitbart News rose to prominence as a provocative right-wing opinion site that played a key role in championing Donald J. Trump’s candidacy last year. Long a foe of the Washington establishment — and frequently accused of espousing racist, misogynist, and xenophobic viewpoints — the site’s newfound influence in the capital cannot be denied.
Charlie Spiering is Breitbart News’s senior White House correspondent, its face in the White House briefing room and the site’s primary day-to-day reporter on the president. This week, from his improvised desk near the briefing room, Mr. Spiering talked to Michael M. Grynbaum, a media reporter for The Times, about how he does his job, what he makes of the controversy surrounding his employer, why his family and friends in Wyoming, where he grew up on a seed farm, turn to Breitbart for their news and more.
