Steve Bannon made a statement in an interview and all mainstream media go ballistic. What was his capiital offense., it? He basically told them to shut up_for a while, and just listen. I guess those are fighting words.
As is usually the ]problem, there is the statement(suggestion) and then what media says ABOUT it. And they can say a ;ot. So their talkathon continues and now they even throw in their “we won’t…we won’t.” But the public at large knows what the media or press have been doing. There is not even a question about it. This just gave them an additional thing to talk about.
According to the NYT :
“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while,” Mr. Bannon said in an interview on Wednesday.
“I want you to quote this,” Mr. Bannon added. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
It is the opposition party — as opposed to what they were doing for eight years of Obama.
The hyper-hypocrisy flared when CNN had whining-fest over this comment. Christiane Amanpour went into overdrive saying this constant criticism from Trump everyday is an attempt to delegitimize them, CNN, and is so very disconcerting. It is not fair, ha ha.
But when Sean Spicer complained at the podium about the constant drumbeat against Trump, they laughed and said he was whining, that this is their job and they’ll proudly continue. Now they are complaining. Criticism got under their skin.
Nothing stops their non-stop attackathon on Trump. So is it war? You decide. I just think its a welcome change to finally see them back on their heels.
I mean in one week they already questioned the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency, called him a liar, and CNN called his advisers propaganda ministers.Basically anything they wouldn’t do or say to Obama. I don’t believe a lot from them, but when they are this disturbed, I gotta know that is for real. So they want their conduct to go unchallenged.
That old journalism rule is to never become the story. They blew that one right out of the water. Now media itself has become the story. They had already lost their credibility way back. But now they became the central story because it is so bad. Even after they were exposed trying to help Hillary and colluding with the DNC. They are now advocacy, activist journalism. They warned us that we’re in for a bumpy ride for the next four years
But they do it non-stop over every detail Trump does. He goes around or over them on Twitter. They keep carping away. No you know one thing for sure, that never would have happened under Obama, and they wouldn’t allow it under Clinton. Just for one full day, I’d like to see what it would have been like with Hillary and just one press conference.
The way I see it, media has picked a hell of a hill to die on. The left will tell media to keep attacking and run right into the fire. Everything the people wanted and stood up for, they stand against. It’s going to be one long, amusing battle. … CNN still sucks.
