Steve Bannon was “dumped like a dog” by President Trump. Steve Bannon was ditched like a bad potato by his corporate backers. Steve Bannon was excommunicated like a heathen slug by the US alt-right.

You know who isn’t above Steve Bannon, though?

The British fucking media.

Big round of applause, guys.

You’ve done it.

You’ve found a way of sinking even further into the shit.

Fuck me

Disgraced, far-right shithead Steve Bannon was interviewed by disgraced, former newspaper editor Piers Morgan. And you know why?

BECAUSE JOURNALISM.

Most people probably wouldn’t have interviewed Bannon. Not because he was behind the Muslim ban, or because of his involvement with Cambridge Analytica, or because he’s a disgusting bigot in oh-so-many ways. Most people would have avoided him because he looks like the health warning on a cigarette packet.

Not our media, though.

They know the atrocious things he’s done, and they knew his career was over. Rather than allowing it to stay dead, however, they jammed some neck bolts on, hooked up the lightning machine, and Frankensteined the bastard.

BUT WHY?

What do they think the point of the media is? Because it’s not supposed to be a platform for random, horrible pricks to spew their horseshit unbound. That’s what bus stations are for.

Impartiality

No one’s saying you shouldn’t give space to different points of view. But thinking some people are worth less than others isn’t just a point of view; thinking Western society needs to be replaced by the Galactic Empire isn’t just a point of view; and thinking disgraced, would-be fascists deserve a second chance isn’t just a point of view.

These ideas you’re laundering for the far right have a real impact on the world. The fact you still don’t understand that is why things are only getting worse.
