CNN’s Jake Tapper Claps Back at Steve Bannon’s Attack on Media

Jake Tapper, CNN’s senior Washington correspondent, had a succinct response to Steve Bannon’s demand that the media “keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while.”

No.

Bannon, the Trump administration’s chief White House strategist, made the remarks in a conversation with a New York Times reporter. “The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile,” he said. “I want you to quote this,” the former head of Breitbart News told the Times. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
