Michael Wolff's bombshell book on Donald Trump's nine months in the White House is a softball compared to a new book on the president set to hit stores Jan. 29 by Fox News Channel media critic Howard Kurtz, The Washington Post reports.

"Media Madness: Donald Trump, the Press, and the War Over the Truth," provides another look inside Trump's White House, and includes telling anecdotes of staff unable to contain the president, with some aides even referring to the president's behavior to do whatever he is strongly guided against doing as a "defiance disorder."

Wolff's book contained factual errors, but it also included damning criticism of Trump from within his inner circle.

Kurtz has in the past defended Trump against negative media coverage, and even took the president's side when he sent out tweets that could have been perceived as sexist or advocating violence.

But his book reveals a president who "is acting haphazardly and without the guidance of his aides, making major allegations and policy decisions on whims and — in the case of the inaugural crowd episode — deliberately pushing false narratives despite apparently knowing better," writes the Post.

"And the fact that it's how Trump is described by an oft-sympathetic Fox News host makes it ring even truer."
