According to the media, Donald Trump could never become president. Now many are on a mission to prove he shouldn't be president. The Trump administration and the press are at war--and as in any war, the first casualty has been truth. Bestselling author Howard Kurtz, host of Fox News's Media Buzz and former Washington Post columnist, offers a stunning expos' of how supposedly objective journalists, alarmed by Trump's success, have moved into the opposing camp. Kurtz's exclusive, in-depth, behind-the-scenes interviews with reporters, anchors, and insiders within the Trump White House reveal the unprecedented hostility between the media and the president they cover.

In Media Madness , you'll learn:

- Why White House strategist Steve Bannon told Trump he is in danger of being impeached
- How the love-hate relationship between the president and Morning Joe hosts--Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski--turned entirely to hate
- How Kellyanne Conway felt betrayed by journalists who befriended her--and how she fought back
- How elite, mainstream news reporters--named and quoted--openly express their blatant contempt for Trump
- How Bannon tried to block short-lived Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci--and why Trump soured on him
- How Ivanka and Jared Kushner aren't the liberals the pundits want them to be--and why Trump tried to discourage them from joining the White House
- Why Trump believes some journalists harbor hatred for him--and how some liberals despise his voters
- How Trump is a far more pragmatic politician than the press often acknowledges (and how the press dismisses his flip-flops when he flops their way)
- What Trump got wrong about Charlottesville--and how Steve Bannon predicted the debacle
- How the media consistently overreached on the Russian "collusion" scandal
- Why Trump actually likes journalists, secretly meets with them, and allows the press unprecedented access
- Why Reince Priebus couldn't do his job--and the real reason he left the White House
- How Sean Spicer privately berated journalists for bad reporting--and why he and Kellyanne Conway were relentlessly attacked by the media

Never before has there been such an eye-opening, shocking look at what the White House and the media think about each other. It's not pretty. But it also makes for the most important political book of the year.
