Get Bent

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.

4 barks and woofs on “Get Bent

  1. Bannon will be moving from Breitbart to the VOA, according to Rachel. The nice, bland, reach-out attempt by the State Department to spread free speech and American values all over the globe at the cost of about $800 million a year has just been allowed to turn its voice to America itself. The board of directors has been replaced with two 20-somethings who have been rightwing fear mongers in the northeast and now act as CEO’s of VOA which will have three channels in USA. So Mr. Bannon will now have his own propaganda vehicle reaching into an ear like yours and I suppose it won’t be long before the broadcasts are beamed into the schools. This time in our lives is beginning to sound and act more and more like “1984” every day.

  2. I guess Fox News doesn’t have a big enough audience, and there is always a remote chance they will fact check them. After all if you’re going to spread “alternate facts” you need to control the medium.
