‘The Media is the Opposition Party’: Sarah Posner on Trump Adviser Steve Bannon Telling the Press to ‘Keep Its Mouth Shut’

Amy Goodman speaks to journalist Sarah Posner the rare interview Trump’s Chief Strategist Steve Bannon gave to the New York Times in which he said: “The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while. I want you to quote this. 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.” Posner wrote an article for Mother Jones in August titled: ‘How Donald Trump’s New Campaign Chief Created an Online Haven for White Nationalists‘. Her latest piece for Rolling Stone is titled: ‘Trump Makes Good on His Nativist Campaign Promises‘. (Democracy Now!)
