‘Nobody Tells Our Media To Shut Up!’: Whoopi Rails Against ‘Not American’ Comments From Bannon

Today on The View, there was a wide-ranging political discussion that touched on the executively ordered travel ban, the refugee crisis, and the plight of Christians in the Middle East, among other things.

At one point, Whoopi Goldberg said this:

Here’s the thing: we have a constitution that says these are the things that we don’t do. This is what makes us different from everybody else. Nobody tells our media to shut up and just take it. That’s not American. That’s how they do it — the Taliban.

Joy Behar jumped in with, “That’s Steve Bannon‘s value — he’s the new puppeteer…”

Last week, Bannon, who is reportedly making a lot of key decisions at the White House right now, said the media should “keep its mouth shut” for a while.
