KITM is more concerned with “the story” behind the stories you are reading, to supply you with the context, background and insight behind stories... but you already know that too, so let’s get to it:
It’s been an open secret all along. We don’t need Steve Bannon to tell us what we already know about Donald Trump. Trump isn’t harnessing chaos, Bannon isn’t smart. There is no plan, no team loyalty, there was never any loyalty. Michael Wolff had more access than the press, even after calling Trump the most frightening, dangerous presidential candidate. Bannon and Roger Ailes went to Wolff’s home to gossip for hours. So—did they feel free to talk because they felt the press was incapable or unwilling to tell you what was really going on?
Armando tells us that even as the New York Times habitually presents a handful of facts diffused through talking points as journalism, sometimes their ability to gather details shines through. Why hasn’t Rod Rosenstein recused himself from the Mueller Investigation?
Meanwhile, Neo-Nazis keep coming.
