Description

According to the media, Donald Trump could never become president. Now many are on a mission to prove he shouldn't be president. The Trump administration and the press are at war-and as in any war, the first casualty has been truth. Bestselling author Howard Kurtz, host of Fox News's Media Buzz and former Washington Post columnist, offers a stunning expose of how supposedly objective journalists, alarmed by Trump's success, have moved into the opposing camp. Kurtz's exclusive, in-depth, behind-the-scenes interviews with reporters, anchors, and insiders within the Trump White House reveal the unprecedented hostility between the media and the president they cover. In Media Madness, you'll learn: - Why White House strategist Steve Bannon told Trump he is in danger of being impeached - How the love-hate relationship between the president and Morning Joe hosts-Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski-turned entirely to hate - How Kellyanne Conway felt betrayed by journalists who befriended her-and how she fought back -How elite, mainstream news reporters-named and quoted-openly express their blatant contempt for Trump - How Bannon tried to block short-lived Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci-and why Trump soured on him -How Ivanka and Jared Kushner aren't the liberals the pundits want them to be-and why Trump tried to discourage them from joining the White House -Why Trump believes some journalists harbor hatred for him-and how some liberals despise his voters -How Trump is a far more pragmatic politician than the press often acknowledges (and how the press dismisses his flip-flops when he flops their way) -What Trump got wrong about Charlottesville-and how Steve Bannon predicted the debacle -How the media consistently overreached on the Russian "collusion" scandal -Why Trump actually likes journalists, secretly meets with them, and allows the press unprecedented access -Why Reince Priebus couldn't do his job-and the real reason he left the White House -How Sean Spicer privately berated journalists for bad reporting-and why he and Kellyanne Conway were relentlessly attacked by the media Never before has there been such an eye-opening, shocking look at what the White House and the media think about each other. It's not pretty. But it also makes for the most important political book of the year.
