Steve Bannon, the right-wing agitator who now works in the White House, is telling the mainstream press to shut up.
“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile,” he said in an interview with the New York Times.
“I want you to quote this,” he said. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country.”
Bannon railed against “the elite media,” whose failure to predict Trump’s election he called “a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away.” He told the Times that no “mainstream media” journalists who reported on Trump’s campaign were “fired or terminated,” apparently suggesting that they should have been, and decried them as “outright activists of the Clinton campaign.”
He did not name any specific members of the press in that diatribe, according to the report.
There isn’t a garden rake in the world that is big enough that he can go fuck himself with.
