(FreedomBeacon.com)- Steve Bannon, former advisor to President Donald Trump, slammed the mainstream media during a recent episode of his popular War Room podcast on Thursday. The only journalists he had positive words for was Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.
Bannon slammed Fox News as “stupid” and said that, other than Carlson, everyone on the network is a “warmonger neocon.”
“I want to give a hat tip to Tucker Carlson. In the fog of war, Tucker every night is an opportunity over at stupid TV, because the rest of it is just the warmonger neocons,” he said in the show.
He claimed that Fox News is as bad as MSNBC and CNN, and perhaps even worse.
His comments were directly related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and slammed politicians who publicly called for a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
Bannon claimed that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is doing all that he can to guilt-trip the West, and that people are falling for his con.
He warned against the United States being guilt-tripped into getting involved in a war with Ukraine, which so many left-wing media outlets seem to want to do. Whether or not these journalists say they want to go to war with Russia is irrelevant, given that their suggestions would be considered a military response by Russia and would likely prompt a militaristic response.

What do you think – is Bannon right on this? Is Zelenskyy trying to guilt-trip the West into initiating World War Three?
