Brian Stelter speculated this morning that if Donald Trump loses in November and wanted to start either a cable network or some sort of other digital media company, the two people he’d want with him are Roger Ailes and Steve Bannon.
Have a listen:
Thinking past November 8… Trump has a great team in place for a new television network or digital media startup https://t.co/IF9ZU55NTI

Others think so, too:
So now we've got a grand alliance between Trump, Ailes, and Bannon. Trump News Network coming soon to a TV near you?

Bannon saw opening last month, post-Ailes as Breitbart being a more right-wing Fox News https://t.co/fPalJlu4Vq Now both advising Trump.

And don’t forget son-in-law Jacob Kushner’s newspaper:
Trump, a guy who regularly calls reporters lying, disgusting scum, now has 3 media guys atop his campaign: Bannon, Ailes and Kushner.
