CNN host Alisyn Camerota has been making appearances recently to discuss her new book, Amanda Wakes Up, which is a fictional work that is nevertheless based in part on her past experiences working as a FNC host for the weekend edition of Fox and Friends. Camerota -- who left FNC to join CNN three years ago -- has been showing this past week a greater willingness to criticize her former employer -- yesterday on CNN's Reliable Sources, going so far as to charge that her old FNC show "unnecessarily stoked outrage" and "took a really myopic view of, say, President Obama or the current administration."
On Sunday’s Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter offered zero pushback on CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley’s latest unhinged tirade in which he compared President Trump to 20th century dictators Francisco Franco of Spain and Benito Mussolini of Italy.
According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, the reason journalists cover Russia non-stop is because they “love America.” The liberal Reliable Sources anchor battled with Kellyanne Conway about the cable network’s priorities on Sunday. Conway blasted ObamaCare, saying, “You can't sit here, Brian, and deny the fact that 19 of the 23 co-ops under ObamaCare have failed. They're gone.”
Things got a little heated during CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday when former Editor for The New York Observer Ken Kurson called out the media for acting as the opposition party to President Donald Trump. “So, the idea here is that the media have become the opposition to Trump … I mean, just listening to the intro to this show,” he told his host, CNN’s ridiculous figure Brian Stelter. As would be expected, that didn’t sit well with Stelter who pretended the media don’t have a disdain for the President.
On Sunday, July 2, President Trump tweeted out a meme of himself wrestling WWE Chairman Vince McMahon with the CNN logo over his face. That same day, CNN’s Brian Stelter took to his show Reliable Sources where he and his panel of liberal reporters decried Trump as “dangerous” and a “fascists.” A full week later, Stelter and another stacked panel of journalists were defending CNN’s legally questionable tactics of tracking down the meme creator and threating to reveal his identity.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's CNN Tonight, liberal New York Times columnist and CNN commentator Charles Blow managed to make a case that there is a liberal bias in the dominant media even while concluding that the liberal bias claim is "kind of false" as he asserted that there is actually an "urban media bias" instead. Host Don Lemon and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter voiced agreement with Blow's assessment.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, when asked by co-host Alisyn Camerota why the dominant media are so "unpopular," CNN media analyst Brian Stelter only vaguely referred to some of the reason being "self-inflicted" before turning to putting much of the blame on "politicians" like President Donald Trump attacking the media as "fake news." In fact, according Gallup polling, negative views by the public toward the media go back for quite some time, and have changed very little in the last couple of years.
If there were two things President Trump knew how to do well, it’s tweet and get under the skin of the folks at CNN. Well, he did both on Sunday, when he tweeted a rather juvenile clip of a fight he had with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon a long time ago, with the CNN logo placed over McMahon’s face. As would be expected, CNN’s ridiculous figure Brian Stelter lost his mind on Reliable Sources later that morning as he and his stacked liberal panel decried the tweet as fascist, a grave danger, and a threat to the people that work at CNN.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter tore into critics of the liberal media in his email newsletter that came just after midnight on Wednesday. In response to a terrible week for CNN’s public relations, he claimed CNN’s critics were “anti-journalism.” This makes about as much sense as saying that when CNN is critical of Trump, they are opposed to the presidency.
CNN's media unit has an enormous black hole in its review of the media world: CNN. On Friday, CNN retracted an online story making unsubstantiated claims about the Russian ties of Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci. Jon Passantino at Buzzfeed reported on Sunday a crackdown on CNN reporting on Russia to prevent future mistakes.
So how much time did Stelter have for this story on his show Reliable Sources on Sunday? Nothing.
Have you ever had an old grand-uncle that you haven't seen in ages and that you have almost completely forgotten about suddenly show up from out of nowhere? His return quickly reminds you why you originally found him so annoying since he is still obsessed about the same grudges upon which he still continues expounding in an aimless manner.
In this case it is former liberal talk show host Phil Donahue who appeared with Brian Stelter on his CNN Reliable Sources show on June 25. Yes, it was the same old by the numbers predictable liberal Phil and, of course, he was obsessed over President Donald Trump. Donahue went into some bizarre places in order to express his hostility towards Trump, starting with his obsession with people taking cell phone pictures at Trump rallies as we shall see in the following clip:
File this one under, ‘no, this not a joke.’ For Friday’s off-camera White House press briefing, CNN hired a sketch artist to render images of press secretary Sean Spicer as yet another example of their pathetic meltdowns over the Trump communications team’s decisions about access.
