Media Madness

Author(s): Howard Kurtz

Politics

"The mainstream media's obsessive hatred for President Trump outruns his anti-media fixation by a country mile, argues this evenhanded and incisive study of press relations with the Trump administration."


-Publishers Weekly


"'Defiance Disorder' Another new book describes chaos in Trump's White House"
-Ashley Parker, Washington Post


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 expos&eacute 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.
