Very comprehensive piece, and OF COURSE she's getting hate mail from Trump supporters who want her raped, murdered, shoved into gas chambers, etc.

Washington: Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields and editor-at-large Ben Shapiro have resigned from the conservative site over its handling of an alleged assault on Fields by Donald Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

"I don't think they took my side," Fields told The Washington Post. "They were protecting Trump more than me."

Last week, Fields recounted in a post for Breitbart how Lewandowski allegedly grabbed her by the arm and yanked her away as she attempted to ask Trump a question after a news conference in Florida. The encounter left finger-shaped bruises on the 28-year-old reporter's arm.
