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.

The shameful state of "Journalism"
Sadly, this book is nonfiction. The book contains important, enlightening information albeit a bit depressing. The narrator is excellent.
I was pleased the author does all he can to keep his view that of observer of ALL aspects. Trump comes off as, well, Trump. His ill-advised comments aren't glossed. By the same standard the media comes off as unfair, vicious, and tribal.
For those who still put any trust in "our" mainstream media, this book presents much to consider. For those who don't, read/listen and be reaffirmed.

'Try again later' unquote
Pre ordered on amazon. Eagerly awaited day of release. Multiple attempts at downloading failed. Met with 'verifying account, try again later'. Later came and went, as did the day of release. Optimistic about the contents, but still unable to download. This current events book may be in the political history section by the time I receive it. I'm giving 5 stars up front to Howard. But zero stars to provider.
Update... It is now March. Despite daily efforts to listen on audible. Despite amazon insisting it's 'in my library', unable to retrieve book. Unable to even re-order book. What a a farce
