After Trump's thank-you rally in Cincinnati, CNN's Dana Bash complained. “There were lots of divisive comments, especially and unfortunately about the press, which I wish he would stop doing." CNN's Brian Stelter said his anti-media remarks make him an "authoritarian." But which is more authoritarian? A president that criticizes the press? Or a press that insists that the president must shut up and never criticize the press?

CNN’s Brian Stelter took his anti-Donald Trump bias to new heights Sunday during his show Reliable Sources, where he argued that the media had to start referring to the president-elect as an authoritarian. “I talk to international correspondents who say to you, ‘This is exactly what authoritarians do. This is what strongmen do. This is what happens in authoritarian regimes,’” he claimed, “I think we need to start using those words on TV, at least, to discuss the possibilities before us.”

On Sunday's Reliable Sources on CNN, while introducing a segment about how to deal with a President Donald Trump when he "lies" about something, host Brian Stelter dubiously included a clip of former President George W. Bush from his April 2013 speech declaring that the U.S. had "prevailed" in Iraq as an example of Presidents telling "lies" alongside deliberate presidential deceptions like Bill Clinton's "I did not have sexual relations with that woman," Barack Obama's "If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance," and Richard Nixon's "I'm not a crook."

The notion that Donald Trump was elected president of the United States because of fake news stories going viral is something the liberal media, and CNN’s Brian Stelter in particular, have been harping on for a while now. It was nagging Stelter so much that he dedicated a monologue to it during “Reliable Sources” on Sunday. “Now, to be clear, fake news infects the left and the right,” he noted at one point, “but the evidence indicates this is more of a problem on the right, among some, not all, but some Trump supporters.”

Following Donald Trump becoming the president-elect in a stunning upset, CNN’s Brian Stelter was desperate to find a reason for Hillary Clinton’s loss on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.” He went so far as to wonder if the media was being too balanced during the election. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway seemingly fed up with Stelter’s antics chided, “I guess what maybe you need to realize is that for a lot of people who don't share your political opinions that's what it [felt] like…the last eight years.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter sent around an Election Day e-mail declaring “This is the year of the fact-checker.” He joked “Trump made fact-checking great again.”

It's time to fact-check the fact checkers. In fact, it's already been done. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, just 29 percent of likely voters trust media fact-checking of the candidates, while 62 percent believed the media “skew the facts to help candidates they support.” Don't you just love the American people?

CNN’s Brian Stelter, who once called the idea of liberal media bias “false” and “Ludicrous,” set his sights on Fox News during his Sunday show Reliable Sources and chastised the news outlet for daring to report on occurrences of voter fraud. “Let's look at Fox News from yesterday morning. This disturbed me,” Stelter told his guest Ari Berman from the leftist publication The Nation, “The banner says "Running rampant," the clear implication here is that voter fraud is happening all over the place, all the time.”

The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss his recent study, in which he discovered that an overwhelming 91 percent of network evening news coverage of Donald Trump was hostile to the candidate. “Tell us about how you came to that conclusion,” inquired host Brian Stelter, “What does that 91 percent number represent?”

Liberal media bias has become painfully obvious during the 2016 election cycle. Between the severely lopsided coverage of political scandals and WikiLeaks exposing just how cozy the media is to the Clinton campaign, it’s nearly impossible to deny its existence. But that didn’t stop CNN’s Brian Stelter from trying on Reliable Sources Sunday. “But how is this anything more than the team that thinks it's losing and trying to work the refs,” he started off his show by asking, but Stelter may have bitten off more than he could chew with an RNC official who gave him an ear full.

Following the recent reporting from major news sources about Donald Trump’s alleged sexual assaults against numerous women, he has railed against the media for colluding with Hillary Clinton campaign. In spite of Media Research Center data which shows how lopsided recent coverage of the candidates had been, CNN’s Brian Stelter denied any such effort by the media to sway the election on Reliable Sources Sunday. “This is not just false, it's ludicrous and it's damaging,” he complained.

The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday to discuss The New York Times’ recent article featuring leaked information about Donald Trump’s taxes. Even though the information is striking, Graham took issue with the Times’ motives for writing the way they did, “They have the anonymous tax expert on the front page of the paper today say he benefited from his vast destruction, like he was Hurricane Donald.”

With the first presidential debate right around the corner CNN’s Brian Stelter amped up his call for debate moderators to be fact-checkers, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources. Of course, most of his concern is focused on Donald Trump with Hillary Clinton being an afterthought, seeing as he lambasted NBC’s Matt Lauer for not doing it. “Does a unique candidate like Donald Trump require a different kind of moderating,” Stelter inquired to veteran debate moderator Jim Lehrer.
