Media Madness: Donald Trump, the Press, and the War over the Truth

By (author) Howard Kurtz

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 impeachedHow the love-hate relationship between the president and Morning Joe hosts-Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski-turned entirely to hateHow Kellyanne Conway felt betrayed by journalists who befriended her-and how she fought backHow elite, mainstream news reporters-named and quoted-openly express their blatant contempt for TrumpHow Bannon tried to block short-lived Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci-and why Trump soured on himHow 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 HouseWhy Trump believes some journalists harbor hatred for him-and how some liberals despise his votersHow 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 debacleHow the media consistently overreached on the Russian “collusion” scandalWhy Trump actually likes journalists, secretly meets with them, and allows the press unprecedented accessWhy Reince Priebus couldn’t do his job-and the real reason he left the White HouseHow Sean Spicer privately berated journalists for bad reporting-and why he and Kellyanne Conway were relentlessly attacked by the mediaNever 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.
