Hot off the heels of the U.S. women’s World Cup victory, hollywood and the media jumped at the pseudo-issue that is a pay disparity between women and men players, parroting the line that the gals are being shafted in their salaries. If only these folks were interested in the simple economic facts of the matter, like the glaring one that a men’s world cup tournament drags in “40x as much revenue” as the female tournament.
CNN’s Reliable Sources host and liberal media apologist Brian Stelter was at it again on Sunday night after another show largely filled with malarkey (aside from spotlighting the Miami Herald’s investigative journalism on the Jeffrey Epstein case). As true to form, he followed up a similarly mindless newsletter that, among other things, complained that it was “gross” the President would criticize MSNBC and NBC.
Bernstein, a master of hyperbole that NewsBusters reporting can attest too, appeared on Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources” where he, in all seriousness, suggested that “this cold civil war predates Donald Trump. And Donald Trump understood that we are in a cold civil war in this country. And he has exploited it and brought this cold civil war almost to the point of ignition through his actions and his words, which are unprecedented in terms of presidential conduct.”
It’s no secret that Fox News is a right-leaning media organization when it comes to political commentary. Fox has several conservative hosts in primetime who are clearly identified as such. That fact often draws the ire of the liberal media, which was on full display on CNN’s New Day Monday morning. Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter continued the segment by saying that he believes that the media need to be firmer in their attacks on the President.
On Sunday's Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter aired a four-minute fraction of his 22-minute podcast interview with author and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, who alleges Donald Trump sexually assaulted her in a department store dressing room at some point in 1995 or 1996. He left out this preachy moment from the very end: "It is always a great time to reevaluate and talk about the relationships between men and women, and power of men in this society. And it does seem like the Trump presidency is one long class about the patriarchy."
For years now, CNN has claimed President Trump has made America a dangerous place for journalists, it’s even the topic of chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s new book. It’s a narrative they sowed to tar Trump supporters and anyone who would question their motives. But on Saturday it was “right-wing” journalist Andy Ngo who was viciously assaulted by left-wing Antifa terrorists.
Axios reported that CNN media correspondent and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter has begun a book about "Fox News in the age of President Trump, and Trump in the age of Fox." The publisher is One Signal, an imprint of Simon and Schuster. The publisher says the book will go "behind the scenes of a TV network and a White House merging in unprecedented fashion."
Since President Trump took office, CNN has been trying to gaslight the country into believing that the President’s friendly relationship with some of the hosts on Fox News was somehow not a standard part of Washington D.C.’s revolving door (Obama hired at least 30 liberal media folks). Now, during Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources”, host and media janitor Brian Stelter took the feud with their better-rated rival further and suggested that the President got seemingly all of his military advice from Fox News.
It’s not a surprise when the New York Times and Brian Stelter -- chief media correspondent for CNN –-- agree on something attacking President Trump. However, when the Wall Street Journal joins those other outlets, more people pay attention. The shared op-ed was written by Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger under the title “Accusing the New York Times of ‘Treason,’ Trump Crosses a Line” and slammed the President’s “increasingly extreme rhetorical attacks against the news media.”
CNN host and media janitor Brian Stelter set up a pretty easy mess for his cast of liberal media types to clean up during Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources”: whether or not the liberal media wanted to see President Trump impeached.
The panel on Reliable Sources Sunday included the typical criticism of President Trump that one would associate with CNN programming. However, one of the panelists, perhaps unintentionally, admitted an unspeakable truth that a “pipeline” exists between “progressive ideas and mainstream journalists.”
The liberal media are certainly not “the enemy of the people”, as President Trump often suggests, but they do operate as though they’re part of an opposition party in how viciously they cover him. Now, during a vomit inducing interview with his CNN colleague Brian Stelter to promote his new book The Enemy of the People, CNN chief White House correspondent and showboater Jim Acosta said he regretted how the media wasn’t more hostile against the President.
