Just days after President Trump spoke of a “running war’’ with the media, his chief White House strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, ratcheted up the attacks, arguing that news organizations had been “humiliated” by the election outcome and repeatedly describing the media as “the opposition party” of the current administration.
“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.”
Sure they do. They've been reporting on how James Comey and the Russians stole it for him for over two months now.
Joseph Goebbels went on to say this:
“The elite media got it dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong,” Mr. Bannon said of the election, calling it “a humiliating defeat that they will never wash away, that will always be there.”
“The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign,” Mr. Bannon said. “Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: They were outright activists of the Clinton campaign.” (He did not name specific reporters or editors.)
“That’s why you have no power,” he added. “You were humiliated.”
Well I have to agree with him that we were humiliated.
After all most of us were unaware of just how ignorant so many Americans were in this country.
So now the Trump campaign has essentially made it absolutely clear that they are waging a war on the media.
Oh, I'm sorry. Not ALL of the media.

President Trump is getting information and affirmation from Fox News, and he's going a step further, openly promoting the conservative cable news channel.
"Turn on Fox," he told ABC's David Muir when confronted by criticism of his speech at CIA headquarters, "and see how it was covered."
Trump said other networks, including ABC, covered the speech "very inaccurately," but he said Fox got it right. He cited Fox's coverage three times. "That speech was a home run. That speech, if you look at Fox, OK, I'll mention you -- we see what Fox said. They said it was one of the great speeches," Trump said.
Go ahead. Say that it is unfair to keep comparing Donald Trump to Hitler.
I dare you.
