Bannon rips 'opposition party' media at CPAC: 'It's always wrong'

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon mocked the media for how it "portrayed the campaign, how they portrayed the transition and now they're portraying the administration," saying "it's "always wrong," during Thursday's speech at CPAC.

Bannon, who rarely speaks publicly, joined White House chief of staff Reince Priebus at the Conservative Political Action Conference for a panel discussion.

Bannon pointed to the press assembled in the room as referred to them as the "opposition party," which is nothing new for President Trump's top adviser who said the media was "cry and weeping" on Election Day.

Bannon, who ran right-wing organization Breitbart News until joining Trump's team, is often credited for shaping Trump rhetoric — especially when things the president says get called into question by the mainstream media.

Last month, Bannon told the New York Times, "The media here is the opposition party," adding, "They don't understand this country." The former Breitbart executive and other Donald Trump surrogates have been combative with the media, often calling CNN "fake news."

Trump recently shocked the media industry when a "Mainstream Media Accountability Survey" was posted on the GOP's website, as well as President Trump's own site.

MSNBC, CNN and Fox News are each singled out in questions, with the survey asking if the organizations are trusted when it comes to Trump. The survey, which refers to Trump's administration as a "movement," starts by asking: "Do you believe that the mainstream media has reported unfairly on our movement?"
