Respect and suspect these mainstream media weasels.
This is very instructive.
There's actually no reason whatsoever for non-leftists to appear on leftist media or to interview with hostile media. They will make you look bad, sound bad-there will always be an ambush.
Better to avoid them entirely.
You don't "need" any mainstream outlet to get a message out. The full Bannon interview is here and there are some good nuggets if you're interested.
Watch this whole video, though. Short and sweet.
