Michelle Moons, Breitbart’s White House correspondent, has reportedly been hired to work at the White House.

According to CNN, Moons will join the White House’s Domestic Policy Council.

She’ll be the third former employee from the far-right news organization to join the Trump White House. Former Breitbart editor Julia Hahn serves as the administration’s director of surrogate and coalition communications, and former Breitbart owner Steve Bannon worked closely with President Donald Trump as his campaign manager and later his senior adviser.

The White House did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for comment.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
