Trump’s chief strategist and alt-right supporter, Stephen K. Bannon, says media should keep mouth shut after election results. He even goes to the point of calling the media “the opposition party” with the “running war” that Trump seems to be fighting.

This is one strategy of controlling the media – attempt to vilify, de-legitimize, and harass.  I should hope the POTUS realize that a free and open press to the people is vital to the heartbeat of democracy.  Not “alternative facts” and not using strategies such as saying-it-over-and-over-until-it-becomes-fact.

“That’s why you have no power,” Mr. Bannon added. “You were humiliated.”

Mr. President, you swore to defend the whole constitution and that includes Freedom of Speech of the First Amendment and our press.  Plus, you should be working on bridging gulfs between all people of the U.S. and not burning bridges.
