Back in September, I interviewed Steve Bannon in his (at least) $1,400 a night palatial hotel suite at the five-star Gritti Palace in Venice, Italy.

The far-right "populist" firebrand—a former Goldman Sachs banker, Hollywood producer, Breitbart chief, and senior adviser to Donald Trump—was ostensibly in the sinking city for the world premiere of American Dharma, a documentary on him by legendary filmmaker Errol Morris. But really, Bannon, who skipped out on that film's premiere, was there to do what he loves most: press.

Upon entering his suite, I noticed a woman crouched in the corner behind a movie camera. "They're shooting something on me," Bannon said, motioning to the mystery lady. When she asked if she could film our interview, I politely declined.
