Just over a week after relaunching Rebel Media with a handful of news shows meant to put its white-supremacist-sympathizing personalities in the past, the company welcomed Milo Yiannopoulos as a guest on its Australian series, Mark Latham’s Outsiders.
The October 11 interview with Yiannopoulos came on the immediate heels of an explosive BuzzFeed exposé that revealed, through leaked emails, that Yiannopoulos had collaborated with white-nationalist figures in creating a de facto alt-right manifesto for Breitbart last year. The report included a video, recorded by white nationalist Devin Saucier, of Yiannopoulos singing “America the Beautiful” at a karaoke bar while Richard Spencer and others gave Nazi salutes.
