US Podcast: Trump’s Media War and Russia
As Donald Trump and advisors such as Chief of Staff Steve Bannon continue their assault on media — at least those media who focus on reporting which may be critical of Trump and his associates — I spoke with Monocle 24’s The Globalist on Monday.
I reiterated both the general nature of the Trump-Bannon assault on media as “enemy of the people” and the specific reason, the fear that reporting — and the leaks from within the Government bolstering it — will expose the Trump-Russia links.
There’s also discussion of the prospects for Democrats after the election of a new head of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez.
