Mitchell Sunderland Fired From Vice After BuzzFeed’s Bombshell Report

Mitchell Sunderland fired

Following an explosive BuzzFeed report about the far-right news site Breitbart and its relationships with racist and sexist hate movements, Mitchell Sunderland ― a senior writer at Vice’s feminism vertical, Broadly ― has been let go, the company said Friday.

The BuzzFeed report, “Here’s How Breitbart And Milo Smuggled Nazi and White Nationalist Ideas Into The Mainstream,” describes how Sunderland on multiple occasions suggested story ideas to Milo Yiannopoulos, then a writer at Breitbart. At one point last year, Sunderland sent Yiannopoulos a link to an article by the author Lindy West and told him, “Please mock this fat feminist.”

TVNL Comment: Why is a man, gay or otherwise, heading a vertical about women or feminism? Makes no sense to start out with.
