Reporters Claim That Steve Bannon Just Walked by and Insulted Them

imageedit_70_8939913790

The president’s chief strategist Steve Bannon called the media the “opposition party” a few weeks ago, which was worrying to many. What’s even more worrying, then, is that he hasn’t backed down on that stance at all. Just today, we reported that he trotted the moniker back out while speaking about the media in an openly hostile way in an interview with CNN.

Now, here are a few tweets of note. They were just posted a few minutes ago.

Those tweets are from staff from the Dallas News, NBC News, Roll Call, CNN, the New York Times, and the Daily Mail. Those outlets aren’t usually grouped together in any way, least of all as a unified party sharing any one ideology, oppositional or not, but this is a new era for the press and the people they serve.
