The Conviction of Steve Bannon

From CJR’s The Media Today by Jon Allsop:

TALK ABOUT A TOP STORY. Last week, journalists were on shirt watch as Steve Bannon, the Trump consigliere and right-wing media entrepreneur, went on trial for contempt of Congress after flouting subpoenas from the House committee investigating January 6 and turned up at the courthouse in DC wearing three shirts layered one over the other, even though it was hot out. Vice’s Greg Walters noted that Bannon seemingly wore the same three shirts at least two days in a row, but was unable to confirm this with Bannon, who “ignored a question shouted at him about his sartorial decision-making from the crowd of journalists and onlookers.” On Friday, after Bannon was found guilty, neverTrump cable-news types asked with one voice how many shirts (or jumpsuits) he would be allowed in prison. North Korea’s official news agency even got in on the fun. (No, not really.)
