Appearing on CNN Newsroom Monday morning, Brian Stelter seemed excited about the prospect of an Oprah Winfrey presidency. Stelter praised Winfrey's moderation of a focus group on 60 Minutes, saying she was "trying to find a sense of unity in the country." Stelter contrasted Winfrey with President Trump, saying "It’s interesting she’s doing that given that a lot of people think Trump is doing the opposite, being very divisive."
The Special Counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election dropped federal indictments on 13 Russian nationals on Friday, stunning Washington, DC. And in a press briefing a short time later, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the media that the indictments had no allegations against Americans because none were “knowing participants” in the plot and the election outcome was not swayed. But that didn’t sit well with a CNN Newsroom panel who couldn’t seem to wrap their heads around it.
President Trump's new budget proposal once again zeroes out funding for public broadcasting, which will probably be ignored. But CNN's Brian Stelter reported the new budget in the same one-sided way that the public broadcasters do. The headline was "PBS denounces Trump's proposed funding cuts (again)." Nowhere in this bubbly little publicity favor was anything new and controversial about PBS, like....sexual assault allegations causing the abrupt end of the long-running Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley shows.
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter was up in arms during Sunday’s Reliable Sources as he ranted about how the release of Nunes memo was a win for Fox News, more specifically Sean Hannity, and all the people in conservative media trying to create what he called an “alternative reality.”
What is more predictable than a never-ending well of virtue signaling from the cable news network that always seems to have a chip on its shoulder? After being roundly mocked for their “Apple vs. Banana” ad last Fall, CNN is back at it again with another fruit-related anti-Trump commercial.
During a debate about how important it was to listen to the views of average Trump voters on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday, political commentator Jeff Greenfield noted that the outlet hyped the Russia investigation to the point where it seemed as though the President would be indicted at any second. This, as political commentator Neera Tanden of the Center for American Progress and former Hillary Clinton policy director, claimed that the media didn’t listen to the anti-Trump resistance enough.
As per usual, the only time CNN treats a Republican with respect, is when they are bashing President Trump. That’s why CNN couldn’t contain their excitement for the impending rant against President Trump by a member of his own party, early Wednesday morning.
CNN political analyst April Ryan fangirled over the idea that Oprah Winfrey could run for president in 2020, on At This Hour With Kate Bolduan Monday morning. Ryan went on an irrational rant, gushing that the media mogul was both “every person” and a “rock star.”
We know rank and file liberals aren’t happy to have a reality show host as their president. But we don’t know yet how they feel about their betters in the media anointing the Doyenne of Daytime TV as President Oprah.
CNN’s media reporter Brian Stelter got his long-awaited wish granted last week as the liberal media en mass started openly questioned President Trump’s mental acuity followed the release of Fire and Fury, the dubiously sourced anti-Trump book that was light on facts but loaded with gossip. Despite his show being called “Reliable Sources,” Stelter spent the entire Sunday program glorifying the book and praising those calling the President’s mental stability into question.
On Thursday, CNN’s The Situation Room spent over 20 minutes during its two-hour airtime peddling accusations by Democrats, a far-left Yale psychologist, and the hot takes of CNN partisans like Brian Stelter that President Trump was mentally ill and thus should be removed from office. This topic has long been on CNN’s periphery, but it popped up on a flagship program on Thursday following other discussions on at least three other CNN programs.
President Trump couldn’t complete his second day of tweeting in 2018 without shots at the liberal media. With a tweet early Tuesday night, he hyped the fake news awards he planned to give out at the start of next week. And it caused the liberal media to have a mental breakdown, as demonstrated by CNN’s Brian Stelter, who predicted nothing but “madness” for 2018 during his appearance on Anderson Cooper 360 shortly after the tweet was put out.
