Newt Gingrich appeared on the Sean Hannity show last night and made some astute observations about the media. He said that the media is part of the deep state and that they basically work on behalf of the Democrats.
Mediaite claims Newt is embracing conspiracy theories:
Newt Gingrich Goes Full Conspiracy Theorist: ‘The Elite Media Is Part of the Deep State’
Former Speaker of the House and famed Clinton hater Newt Gingrich appeared on Hannity Wednesday night to talk about the evil liberal media and how they’re in cahoots with Washington’s VIPs.
“The elite media is part of the deep state,” Gingrich said. “The elite media group has survived by being in collusion with the senior bureaucracy, the city of Washington, the senior reporters, the senior bureaucrats, the senior lobbyists, they all hang out together, they all talk to each other, they all compare notes.”
Host Sean Hannity began to wax poetic about President Donald Trump’s accomplishments as laid out in the State of the Union and how the speech was well-received in polls conducted by CBS and CNN, and he wondered aloud why the media was not echoing the president’s optimism.
“The elite media in the United States is not neutral. They’re not referees,” Gingrich asserted. “They’re the offensive wing of the other team.”

How is that a conspiracy theory? It’s obvious to so many people.
