The Opposition Party is ‘Always Wrong’: Steve Bannon Slams the Media During CPAC Panel
Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus are holding a joint appearance today at CPAC, and Bannon began the discussion by taking shots at the political press about how much it gets wrong.
Bannon doesn’t make a lot of direct media appearances, but for weeks the White House strategic adviser has been slamming the media by saying it should be treated like the “opposition party.” ACU chairman Matt Schlapp asked Priebus and Bannon for thoughts about the media’s reporting, and Priebus expressed frustration with articles suggesting he and Bannon have a hostile relationship.
This eventually led to Bannon berating the press and saying it was just the latest fallacy.
“Look at the opposition party: How they portrayed the campaign, how they’ve portrayed the transition, and now the administration. It is always wrong,” Bannon said. “If you remember, the campaign was the most chaotic by the media’s description, most disorganized, most unprofessional, had no idea what they were doing. Then you saw them all crying and weeping [on Election Night].”
Priebus followed up in agreement, saying people were tired of the media’s “ridiculous” stories and are hopeful for change from President Trump‘s administration.
