Kurtz: Neutralizing press is a central mission of Trump WH

This Week On #MediaBuzz

With President Trump attacking the "fake news" use of anonymous sources, Steve Bannon ripping the "corporatist" media, and Sean Spicer excluding certain news outlets from an off-camera briefing, we'll question former campaign manager COREY LEWANDOWSKI on that and more. We'll analyze what's behind the escalation of the Trump/media war, as well as coverage of his denunciation of anti-Semitism, with GUY BENSON, ERIN McPIKE and MARGARET CARLSON. Plus, SUSAN FERRECHIO on the coverage of angry town halls facing Republican lawmakers as well as the DNC leadership race.

Ask Howie

I wanted to send an email about your segment with Kellyanne. She should have her own news show so we can learn the POSITIVE news about President Trump! She was 100% on point about the news media about cherry-picking which stories they spin and "report." I know most of the news I read or hear is probably untrue or twisted into some negative story.
