Breitbart Advertising Boycott Backfiring Spectacularly

Breitbart launches an attack on Kelloggs for stopping advertising.

As has been the case with literally every other boycott the embattled conservative media outlet has engaged in, the Breitbart advertiser boycott aimed at Kellogg’s is backfiring spectacularly.
