Ben Shapiro Leaves TruthRevolt

Via the Washington Examiner:
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro has resigned as editor-in-chief of TruthRevolt, a non-profit news website site that he co-founded just two years ago. Shapiro's departure from the young media group, which he launched in 2013 along with David Horowitz of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, comes amid the group's decision to let go of many of its writers — and as Horowitz is hitting back against widespread rumors that the site is sinking. Although Shapiro's name is prominently displayed on the website's homepage, it is nevertheless a "project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center." Horowitz himself owns the site. "I am no longer associated with [TruthRevolt] and it's a project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, fully owned and operated by them," Shapiro told the Washington Examiner's media desk when asked about the future of the website. "What David Horowitz chooses to do with the site after my resignation is out of my purview."
The above-linked article goes on at some length to claim that today is the final day for TruthRevolt, but this morning they announced a new editor. Shapiro's name has vanished from title banner. The stated mission of TruthRevolt is to "unmask leftists in the media for who they are, destroy their credibility with the American public, and devastate their funding bases."
