Um enorme elogio de Obama a Steve Bannon e ao projecto Breitbart: Barack Obama: Breitbart News Shifted Entire Media Narrative During 2016 Election
Former President Barack Obama acknowledged that Breitbart News changed the media narrative during the 2016 election.
“You know … Bannon and Breitbart did something pretty interesting. Now, they didn’t create a whole new platform but they did shift the entire media narrative in a different direction — in a powerful direction,” Obama said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Obama made his remarks during his Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago after stopping by a panel discussion on the “Responsibility of Powerful Online Platforms.”
He urged people attending the session to “solve” the shifting media climate and turn it back in a different direction.
“The question is — are you able to do that in reverse but to things that are true and are not designed simply to churn anger and resentment and frustration,” he said. “So — solve that will you?”
Obama has frequently expressed his frustration with the freedom of the internet, calling for it to be regulated.
