Steve Bannon Plots Fox News Competitor As He "Goes To War" With Globalists, Report

Tyler Durden's picture

Immediately upon announcing his exit from the White House last Friday, Steve Bannon hosted a number of interviews in which he made very clear that he was "going to war" with everyone from Congress to the mainstream media and even the globalists working in Trump's White House.  Now, we learn via Axios that part of that war effort might include a brand new cable news network to the right of Fox News. 

Axios' Jonathan Swan hears Bannon has told friends he sees a massive opening to the right of Fox News, raising the possibility that he's going to start a network.


Bannon's friends are speculating about whether it will be a standalone TV network, or online streaming only.


Before his death in May, Roger Ailes had sent word to Bannon that he wanted to start a channel together. Bannon loved the idea: He believes Fox is heading in a squishy, globalist direction as the Murdoch sons assume more power.


Now he has the means, motive and opportunity: His chief financial backer, Long Island hedge fund billionaire Bob Mercer, is ready to invest big in what's coming next, including a huge overseas expansion of Breitbart News.



Of course, this new speculation comes after Bannon declared last Friday that he was "going to war" for Trump...

If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up.


I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents... on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,

Meanwhile, with regard his internal adversaries, at the departments of State and Defense, who think the United States can enlist Beijing’s aid on the North Korean standoff, and at Treasury and the National Economic Council who don’t want to mess with the trading system, Bannon was ever harsher...

“Oh, they’re wetting themselves,” he said, explaining that the Section 301 complaint, which was put on hold when the war of threats with North Korea broke out, was shelved only temporarily, and will be revived in three weeks. As for other cabinet departments, Bannon has big plans to marginalize their influence.


“That’s a fight I fight every day here,” he said. “We’re still fighting. There’s Treasury and [National Economic Council chair] Gary Cohn and Goldman Sachs lobbying.”

Finally, perhaps no one can summarize what Bannon has planned for the future than Bannon himself:

"The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over … I feel jacked up … Now I'm free. I've got my hands back on my weapons. … I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There's no doubt. I built a f***ing machine at Breitbart. And now … we're about to rev that machine up."

Too bad you won't expose Israel or AIPAC's role in this mess.

I hope Bannon hires Judge Napolitano. His short-lived show on Fox (FBN?) was AMAZING! It's too bad it was quickly shut down.

Bannon/Breitbart should start grooming the next True White president. One not surrounded by tribesters.

And meanwhile, Trump please get off your fat ass and take care of AntiF(irst)A(mendment). Rent some balls if you need.

Fox has slid significantly left in just the past few months - not that it was ever really "right" to begin with. After Charlottesville, their vitriolic hate was indistinguishable from their leftist competitors.

Forward (over the cliff)!

AMEN TO THAT!   I was about to say the same thing and you beat me to it.  If he can, create a new search engine, a news channel, and ideally a new social media platform along the lines of YouTube/Twitter.   If they do it well, and advertise it, it will put the pthers out of business.

Exactly.  Even a year ago I could see that Google and Youtube would need to be replaced, with similar services, but ACTUALLY free of censorship this time.    And since then, they have both gone complete and total 1984.

Bannon, can you go wireless and let us use the rabbit ear antenna's again?   Why in the heck is the entire earth going wireless, but TV has now forced us into a wired world?

Any Pope that thinks he can speak directly from God is blowing smoke. Not to mention that their vaunted St. Peter was married (gasp). Look it up. There's a reference in the Holy Bible to Peter's mother-in-law. Can't have one of those without a wife. Yet, they stick by this unmarried nonsense. The laws of man is what Rome is built on, not the law of God. After all, would Jesus Christ live in such splendid surroundings as the Vatican? No, he would sell it all and use the proceeds wisely to spread the Gospel.

The Pope and Catholicism is a shitstain on humanity. Let's be clear on what they represent. Evil, corruption and dark forces, not the Gospel of Christ.

Martin Luther and the Reformers were right on this.

He won't have much trouble building something to the right of Fox News.  Murdoch's kids are screaming libs and they're getting more control over the network from daddy every day.  It'll be an MSNBC clone in 5 years.

Bannon's not wrong about the possible positioning of a new network.  I think it would work.

This whole shtick looks scripted to me. What are they trying to divert our attention away from?

If Trump brings about better economic conditions for blacks and Midwesterners, and exposes a little DNC corruption, then that party will crash out of influence, and in turn upset the left half of globalism. The right half of globalism will also start to look damned foolish for backing the left half.

This is a fight for the survival of the establishment, and for shifting blame when the next crash rolls in.

BarkingCat's picture

They are even trying to divert attention. 

People are too blind to see the truth in front of their eyes - the Trump administration has been completely taken over by the deep state.

Those generals are not working for Trump, They are running the place.

Breitbart and any new TV network would still be neocon, pro military expansion (meaning pro "bigger government"), pro "interventions," pro "we are the exceptional people and must be the world's policeman."

I am sure we will never see any stories on why the Fed is not being audited, or whether or not "markets" are rigged or "free."

In other words, doesn't really matter what he does with Breitbart or his new TV network. The Status Quo will remain with the big issues.

Everybody who peruses a lot of media knows what Bannon thinks.  People only go to Breitbart because they know what they're going to get and they want that.  I go every so often to see what they're saying but I don't find it satisfying or interesting for long.  Mostly they reword stories that have already appeared elsewhere, and shape them to fit a very confining editorial position.  

They have their place in the right-wing ecosphere, indeed.  Some obscure website with no reputation to worry about runs a ridiculous story, like for instance when "TruePundit" ran Erik Prince's fable that the NYPD had Anthony Weiner's laptop and it incriminated every major Democrat in pedophilia, and that there were warrants being issued and imminent mass arrests.  Then WND, Breitbart and the rest of the right wing web commented on "TruePundit's" story.  That keeps their hands clean, at least in terms of plausible deniability, and lets them whip up their loyal readers.  When the story vanished, as utter bullshit often will, they can claim they were merely commenting on the story, not advocating that the story was in any way true.

So Bannon is going to use Breitbart to tell people what he thinks?  Or maybe he can get his beak even further into that Mercer money to found his own outlet?  So what?  Is he going to call people different names than he's already been calling them?  Editorializing is not the same as policymaking, just as health insurance is not the same as medical care.  If Bannon gets his ultimate dreamhouse media operation, it won't convince people who think he's full of shit.  And people who think he's a genius already know where to find him.

I'm not sure. He's on a YouTube list of Jews around Trump that was posted here yesterday. I was surprised, because he doesn't come off as Jewish. He's known to support conservative Jewish causes, but I haven't found more than that. There isn't much out there about him.

We don't need a news organization to the "right of Fox", we need one that tells the truth. Fox is pretty good at calling out the left for their retardedness and fake news but are horrible at calling out Trump, neocons and dems with regards to foreign war policy.

Fox still calls Crimea a Russian annexation, still calls Ukraine a Russian invasion, still says that Assad gassed his own people and still ignores all the evidence that ISIS is supported by the US gov't.

If Bannon were to start a news organization that went where the evidence took it and told the truth about the world, our gov't, CIA, et al., he would have a smash hit. Of course he'd probably get killed for doing so, but he'd have a smash hit. Even OAN carries water for the Neocons and globalists so I'm not expecting much from Bannon.

America needs one more TV channel like a hole in the head.

We need a new, true to the core political party, that can run real Americans.

Local, State and Federal.

Leadership and Organization.

This can be done.
