《媒体的疯狂》揭露特朗普政府多项秘密

Sarah Gray 2018年01月25日

这本书披露了特朗普的推特如何引发了白宫内部的混乱。

据一本深入观察特朗普白宫的新书透露,总统唐纳德·特朗普承认了去年的失策,不该安排时任白宫新闻发言人肖恩·斯派塞去抨击媒体对于就职典礼人群规模的报道。

福克斯新闻(Fox News)霍华德·库尔茨的这本书《媒体的疯狂:唐纳德·特朗普、新闻界和真理之战》(Media Madness: Donald Trump, The Press, And The War Over The Truth)将于1月29日上市。《华盛顿邮报》(The Washington Post)率先登载了节选,详细呈现了部分内容。

这将是今年1月出版的第二本有关特朗普白宫秘辛的作品。迈克尔·沃尔夫的《火与怒》(Fire and Fury)和盘托出了特朗普入主白宫头九个月的种种轶事,如今仍然霸占着新闻的头条。

库尔茨在他的福克斯新闻节目Media Buzz中有时也会站在特朗普一边批评媒体。《华盛顿邮报》认为,比起沃尔夫的震撼爆料,库尔茨这本书更倾向于对白宫工作人员的逢迎式描绘。不过书中也透露了一些白宫成员无法限制总统的轶事。对于白宫工作人员极力反对,而特朗普坚持要做的倾向,他们称之为“反抗综合征”。

《华盛顿邮报》表示,书中透露了特朗普的推特如何引发了白宫内部的混乱——包括发推声明禁止变性人入伍,以及声称奥巴马团队在竞选期间窃听了他的消息。

库尔茨在书中写道:“普利巴斯知道白宫团队不得不证实推文的正确性,这与审核提交声明的常规流程的是相悖的。一旦总统把140个字符发出去,他就不会再撤回了。”

库尔茨还提到了关于就职典礼人数的争论。尽管特朗普的顾问凯莉安妮·康韦试图劝说特朗普不要让斯派塞攻击媒体,特朗普还是这么做了,最后导致了一系列关于就职典礼人数规模和笑柄的新闻报道。

书中透露,特朗普对工作人员说:“你们是对的,我不应该那么做。”(财富中文网)

President Donald Trump admitted he was wrong to have then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer attack the media about their reporting on the size of the inauguration crowd last year, according to the latest book providing an inside look at Trump’s White House.

The book, Media Madness: Donald Trump, The Press, And The War Over The Truth, by Fox News’s Howard Kurtz, will be released on Jan. 29. The Washington Post obtained excerpts ahead of the release and detailed some of its contents.

It will be the second Trump White House book to premiere in January, following Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury, the gossipy tell-all about Trump’s first nine months in the White House that is still making headlines.

Kurtz, who has sometimes sided with Trump in his Fox News show Media Buzz in criticizing the media, wrote a book that is reportedly a more honeyed portrayal of the White House staff than Wolff’s bombshell, according to The Washington Post. Yet it still contains telling anecdotes of a White House unable to contain the president, with staff members even coining Trump’s inclination to do what they urged him not to do as “defiance disorder.”

According to The Washington Post, the book reveals how Trump’s tweeting led to chaos among White House staff—including after Trump’s tweets about banning transgender people from serving military and his claim that the Obama White House wiretapped him during the campaign.

“Priebus knew the staff would have to fall into line to prove the tweet correct, the opposite of the usual process of vetting proposed pronouncements,” Kurtz said in the book. “Once the president had committed to 140 characters, he was not going to back off.”

Kurtz also writes about the debate over crowd sizes during the inauguration. Although Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway tried to dissuade Trump from ordering Spicer to attack the press, Trump had Spicer do it anywas, leading to an entire news cycle about inauguration crowd sizes and ridicule.

“You were right,” Trump told his staff, according to the book. “I shouldn’t have done that.”
