    Curious - Did you actually read the article? As in, did you read the rest of his sentence - "and just listen for a while".

    In the context of the media blowing it with its certainty-of-a-Clinton victory, which is the context in which he said the sentence, I agree with that point.

    To be clear, Bannon is a freak on a leash. I'd stay the hell away from him. But I'm not binary. I can judge his comment for what it is.

    So, all of that said, I understand the zeal to post hourly anti-Trump threads.

    But it may benefit to, well, just listen for a while.

    Wow, The New York Times click baiting.

    No wonder everybody hates the media. They literally cut his sentence in half and used that as the headline. Talk about fake news.

    I read it. I try and keep thread titles as short as possible. And if I am posting something - it doesn't mean I agree or don't agree with what's being post. I agree tho - Bannon... as he calls himself - is Darth Vader...

    Zin - you clearly don't understand what fake news is and what it isn't based on your comment. A click bait headline is not fake news. You can say a lot of things about this article - like the clear anger in the text wrapping around quotes. But the news story is not fake.

    Every publication click baits. Every single one. Even the ones you might consider legit.

    And np - not everyone hates the media. Hyperbole.

    Fox’s Volley With Obama Intensifying
    By BRIAN STELTER OCT. 11, 2009

    Attacking the news media is a time-honored White House tactic but to an unusual degree, the Obama administration has narrowed its sights to one specific organization, the Fox News Channel, calling it, in essence, part of the political opposition.

    “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent,” said Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, in a telephone interview on Sunday. “As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

    Finally we got people with balls to tell these media hacks what they really are!
    Hit them hard Donnie! Maybe one day they will be real professionals.

    Small surprise there, and entirely predictable.

    What is less predictable is that the gossamer thin skin of the President is having an effect on how his administration treats with, and deals with, the media.

    Yeah we know, you got used with the previous administration having to approve what the media could or could not say before they put stuff out there.

    Am I suppose to be unpredictable?


    Um, again in your zeal to criticize Trump you expose just how ill informed you are. There is absolutely no surprise in Bannon saying this. None.

    Being less emotional would help your vision.

    Yeah. That Trump and Bannon are real professionals. LOL

    When you have lies coming out of The White House - it's hypocritical and laughable to call the media dishonest. I'm not saying the press isn't without issues. But this is also classic projection. I'm not lying - you are.. No you are. No you are.

    Obama told Fox off as illustrated above. So I guess we already had someone who had the balls.

    No.

    But, I keep hoping for a surprise someday.

    Something resembling a thoughtful, informed, intelligent, - and, dare I say - an analytical post. Actually, an objective post would be the biggest surprise. But I doubt that is possible. Myopia.....

    Fake news, that's something the Trump camp would never consider doing. Right?

    Does anyone see the irony in Bannon giving an interview to mainstream media that he thinks is so out of touch?

    It's a great time to be alive. Lefties get to see how utterly immoral and sheepish Righties are.

    Now we get to experience first hand how Hitler rose to power. Because of spineless, sheepish, immoral Righties.
