‘He wants shows that look like news but they are not really’

EXCERPT:

 

STELTER: “When Trump gets ticked off, his friends at the network try to remind him that all the highest rated shows on fox are the pro Trump shows from Fox and Friends to the Ingram angle. And he heard that reminder he again and that led to this tweet on Saturday. He went out there congratulating Sean Hannity on his ratings. Trump wants sycophants on the air, not reporters. He lashes out when he sees reporters on fox.owe fans on the air, not reporters. He lashes out when he sees reporters on fox. He wants shows that look like news but they are not really. They are blow Trump cheer leading. Trump wants absolute loyalty."
