Steve Bannon: ‘Fox News is TV for stupid people’

While conducting an interview with Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon took aim at Fox News, calling the network an outlet for dumb people.

“And all they want you to be is dumb. Remember, they’re Mitch McConnell’s biggest backers,” Bannon said in a video flagged by Media Matters. “They’re Paul, Paul Ryan’s on the board, does that tell you enough? And for Trump, just remember, and Trump knows this, and there he still says, he says I wish him well and everything. That shows you the class of Donald Trump.”

“That shows you the class of Donald Trump, and it infuriates me that people, the Murdochs think they can’t get away with it, they’re not gonna get away with it,” Bannon said.

“It’s TV for stupid people. Their entire thing is to drill you with Republican talking points to dumb you down and follow Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, McCarthy, everything,” he added.
