<p>In an interview with Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow for Friday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, correspondent Stephanie Gosk worried that the conservative media figure did not think it was &ldquo;dangerous&rdquo; for the President to criticize the press: <strong>&ldquo;President Trump calling the, quote, &lsquo;fake news media,&rsquo; &lsquo;the enemy of the American people.&rsquo; That kind of extreme language, is that not damaging to our democracy?&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Marlow responded: <strong>&ldquo;I don&#39;t think it is, because I think, in a lot of ways, as Steve Bannon put it, the press is the opposition party.</strong> That&#39;s 100% the world view that I have.&rdquo;</p>
