Breitbart Captures Essence Of Trump Voters
Better Than Squishy Fox News

The Associated Press

by Tony Lee - 22 Aug 2017

Washington Post columnist and editor Eugene Robinson observed this week that Breitbart News captures the essence of President Donald Trump’s voters better than squishy Fox News.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Last Word, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist said that Trump may be worried about former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon being on the outside because that “Breitbart megaphone” could “turn against him in a big way” and “would undercut his standing” with his voters.

Host Lawrence O’Donnell observed that Rupert Murdoch and his family, along with its media properties like the New York Post and Fox News, have been going after Trump and his nationalist agenda. O’Donnell, the former top Pat Moynihan aide, said Fox News versus Breitbart “would be really something to watch.”

“Bring out the popcorn and we could watch that unfold,” Robinson said.

Robinson continued by saying that he thinks Trump believes “Breitbart captures his essence and his soul” and those of “his core supporters” and “touches them in a way” better than Fox News can.
“Fox News can be a little squishy, as we’ve seen this week,” Robinson said.

Last week, Murdoch’s son, James, who reportedly wants to move Fox News even more to the establishment middle, criticized Trump’s response to Charlottesville in an email that was supposedly meant to be sent to his friends.

“The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob,” he wrote in a letter to his friends last week that various outlets all conveniently received at the same time. “I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.”

James Murdoch’s wife, Kathryn, has been blasting Trump on Twitter, according to CNN, saying in one tweet last month that she doesn’t believe in Trump and wishes Trump would just “go away.”
I don't believe in Donald Trump. Will that make him go away?

Ed Note: Actually, the entire newscast viewing audience would be better off if the entire Murdock Clan would GO AWAY!
