TruthRevolt is facing a big switch of leadership.

Out: Ben Shapiro. (He plans to launch his own organization ahead of the 2016 presidential race.)

In: Mark Tapson. 

As reported by The Washington Examiner, TruthRevolt is experiencing a number of drastic changes, including the recent sudden firings of several writers. Shapiro, who resigned last week, told The Examiner, “What David Horowitz chooses to do with the site after my resignation is out of my purview.”

Shapiro’s Twitter bio still lists him as an editor-at-large at Breitbart News, a radio host and a bestselling author.
