Breitbart says Milo answers coming today

Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow says we can expect to learn later today whether the site will retain alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos after video surfaced of the writer justifying sex between adult men and minors.

On Breitbart's radio show this morning, Marlow and Breitbart Washington editor Matt Boyle both described Yiannopoulos' comments as "not defensible," but it's still unclear whether they're going to fire him. Marlow said that Yiannopoulos told him he'd never sexually abused a child, and that he himself was sexually abused as a child.

Yiannopoulos will hold a press conference this afternoon where he's expected to address his future.

Here's the clip where the Breitbart editors discuss Yiannopoulos' future:
