Appearing on<em> Varney and Co.</em>, the MRC president discussed Trump&rsquo;s use of Twitter. Bozell concluded, &ldquo;I see CNN and others growing as well because of their opposition to Trump. However, I see them being neutralized. And I see them being neutered, again, because Donald Trump will go around them, not talk to them.&rdquo; The media watchdog leader explained the strategy: &ldquo;Look, he has got 25 million Twitter followers and Facebook fans. He can converse directly with them. And if the media cover his posts, his tweets, they have got to cover what he said. That allows him to control the conversation.&rdquo;</p>
