The Rebel Media is a Canadian far-right online political and social commentary media website founded in February 2015 by the former Sun News Network host Ezra Levant. It has been described as a “global platform” for counter-jihad ideology.
Former Sun News Network parliamentary correspondent Brian Lilley and former Sun News reporter Faith Goldy later joined the outlet. Gavin McInnes, founder of the Proud Boys far-right men’s organization, is also a contributor.
Many of The Rebel’s contributors announced their departure – or were fired – in the second half of August, 2017, following Faith Goldy’s prominent coverage of the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and her interview with The Daily Stormer.
The Rebel Media broadcasts its content on the Rebel Media website and its YouTube channel, which peaked on August 16, 2017 at 873,800 subscribers, however with the August departures, it had fallen to 842,200 as of August 31. In September–October the channel has renewed its growth, and, as of January 3, it has over 866,000 subscribers.
