Bannon feels power of the media

White House strategist Steve Bannon’s reaction to his being fired from his job of presidential adviser was a reminder of the power of the press. Bannon told the Weekly Standard. “Now I’m free. I’ve got my hands back on my weapons. Someone said, ‘it’s Bannon the Barbarian.’ I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There’s no doubt. I built a fucking machine at Breitbart. And now I’m about to go back, knowing what I know, and we’re about to rev that machine up. And rev it up we will do.”

When President Trump appointed Bannon as his adviser, many worried about the influence he would have on the president. The extent of that influence is debatable, but Bannon himself seems to be saying his real influence will be back at Breitbart.com.

He might be right.
