So, Naturally, They Misquote Him
"The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile. I want you to quote this; 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. The elite media got it dead wrong, 100 percent dead wrong...The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign. Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: they were outright activists of the Clinton campaign. That's why you have no power. You were humiliated. You're the opposition party. Not the Democratic Party. You're the opposition party. The media's the opposition party."
So what did the ProfessionalLiarMedia take away from that? Nothing.
They seized on the phrase "keep its mouth shut" and immediately went into Full- "We're the Heroic Defenders of Truth Against Those Trump Brownshirts Trying To Silence Us!"-Mode.
Bannon wasn't telling the professional liars to stop doing their jobs--he was telling them to start.
Professional Liars gon' Lie. Professionally.
