On CNN's Reliable (Liberal) Sources on Sunday, host Brian Stelter discussed the "impeachment messaging wars." In one corner, he put Rudy Giuliani and the "ultraconservative" OANN network making a "glorified anti-Biden attack ad." Meanwhile, "Democrats continue to take over daytime TV, for televised testimony from witnesses, and Republicans continue to claim the hearings are boring. The messaging war is vital, so which side is winning?" Olivia Nuzzi said Democrats were like a Ken Burns PBS documentary, while the Republicans were....The Wizard of Oz???
Following former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg throwing his hat into the 2020 Democratic presidential race, Bloomberg News was rightly dragged when they announced they would be hands-off with their founder and his Democratic rivals, while continuing to grill President Trump. The move was almost universally panned, with the media beat Sunday shows on both CNN and Fox News criticizing the Bloomberg News. Although, some tougher than others.
CNN’s Brian Stelter devoted the entire opening segment of Reliable Sources to trashing Fox News and right-wing media. His guests all too happily joined in. The Washington Post’s Margaret Sullivan contrasted the right-wing media with the “reality-based” liberal media while multiple members of the panel accused Fox News and conservative media of pushing a narrative sympathetic to President Trump while turning a blind eye to the liberal agenda endorsed by the legacy media.
As part of their crusade for “truth” in the age of Trump, the liberal media have made it part of their mission to prop up any conspiracy theory the Democratic Party pitches them, such as NBC’s debate moderators allowing their candidates to assert Stacey Abrams was the governor of Georgia. On Sunday’s no-so “Reliable Sources,” CNN host Brian Stelter helped to defend disgraced former Congresswoman Katie Hill by lying about why she had to resign from office at the end of last month.
Remember back to 2014 when CNN became a laughing stock when they suggested aliens might have abducted Malaysia Flight 370? Well, it took over three years of a Trump presidency but they finally reached a similar milestone again. This time, however, they did it when CNN media “journalist” and host of so-called “Reliable Sources” ended his Sunday show with a segment decided claiming President Trump was a “destructive cult” leader like Jim Jones and using “mind control.”
On Saturday afternoon, Never Trump attorney and liberal cable news darling George Conway leveled sexist attacks at Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) on Twitter for being against impeachment and tussling with fellow media favorite and Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), calling her “lying trash” and sharing a doctored photo of her flipping off a camera. Of course, CNN did nothing to rebut or even acknowledge these attacks on-air.
In a Sunday segment on so-called “Reliable Sources”, media janitor and host Brian Stelter proved how much of a clown show CNN was by trotting out disgraced journalist Dan Rather to talk about, of all things: why the “truth still matters.” At the same time, Stelter wanted Rather to talk about how the “truth is closing in” on President Trump, and how the President apparently runs a cult.
On Sunday, CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter oozed about his "special one-on-one interview" with what CNN described as "legendary journalist" Bill Moyers, asking drama-queen softballs like "Do you fear for the country?" And "will people care this week? Will democracy hold up through this process?"
On Sunday CNN’s Reliable Sources, which bills itself as a program about “the media world”, failed to spend even a second of airtime on the week’s biggest media story: the revelation that in 2016, ABC allegedly suppressed a story about convicted serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
CNN’s Brian Stelter devoted an entire segment on Sunday’s edition of Reliable Sources to obsessing over President Trump’s spelling mistakes on Twitter. While he conceded that “everybody makes spelling mistakes,” Stelter seemed to think that the President’s Twitter typos deserve extra special scrutiny because “if you can’t get the small stuff,” such as spelling, “people worry about the big stuff.” The clear implication was that President Trump’s spelling habits have an impact on his ability to run the country effectively.
Stop the presses! CNN’s Brian Stelter, wants you to know that he reports on the facts and nothing but the facts. Of course, in reality this assertion could not be farther from the truth, but the host made the claim regardless on Sunday’s Reliable Sources.
Appearing twice in as many days on CNN, The Hill’s Rising co-host and former MSNBC host Krystal Ball attempted to breakthrough the CNN machine and their establishment crowd by calling out Hillary Clinton for referring to 2020 Democrat, Congresswoman, and Hawaii Army National Guard Major Tulsi Gabbard as a Russian asset. Further, Ball attempted to make the argument that if droves are repeatedly accused of being Russian assets or ideas or campaigns are deemed Russian-backed, then nothing is. Unfortunately, CNN’s Zuckerbots weren’t interested in this point of view.
