Twitter and YouTube Banned Steve Bannon. Apple Still Gives Him Millions of Listeners - 2021-01-19
Late at night on Jan. 5, the day before President Donald Trump was scheduled to deliver a defiant speech before thousands of his most dedicated supporters, his former adviser Steve Bannon was podcasting from his studio near Capitol Hill. He had been on the air several times a day for weeks, hyping the narrative that this was the moment that patriots could stand up and pull out a Trump win.
"It's all converging, and now we're on the point of attack tomorrow. It's going to kick off, it's going to be very dramatic," Bannon said in his fluent patter, on a day that would see four of his "War Room" shows posted online, up from his usual two or three. "It's going to be quite extraordinarily different. And all I can say is strap in. You have made this happen and tomorrow it's game day."
The next morning Bannon was back. "We're right on the cusp of victory," Bannon said, as protesters massed at the Ellipse to hear from Trump.
