CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on "Legendary Journalist" Sam Donaldson to unload the usual liberal mantras on Sunday. That's how CNN tagged Sam -- "Legendary Journalist" -- not only on screen, but even in the CNN transcript. Donaldson raised eyebrows much smaller than his by claiming that Trump fans are "fixated" on narrowing the country: "They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again. They don't want the diversity."
NBC’s Chuck Todd decreed a “National nightmare is upon us.” CNN host Don Lemon and former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather proclaimed that Donald Trump has “Out-Nixoned Nixon.” And when former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld claimed Trump’s “treason” was punishable by death, an MSNBC contributor’s response was to casually inquire “Have you looked into this?...How do you see this proceeding?” The following is just a sampling of the most egregious outbursts from the liberal media and celebrities from the past few weeks.
During Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources” on CNN, the network’s engrained hatred for their far more popular competitor boiled over as senior media reporter Oliver Darcy seemed to lose his wits, lashing out at Fox Corp boss Lachlan Murdoch and accusing him of injecting poison into society. Some have suggested Darcy was asserting that Fox News was the enemy of the people.
As if actor Robert DeNiro’s political opinion held any kind of special place in America, CNN media janitor and host of so-called “Reliable Sources” Brian Stelter invited the foul-mouth on his show to get his opinion about President Trump’s possible impeachment. In the midst of that, Stelter teed up DeNiro to lash out at Fox News for criticizing him, which led to an unhinged outburst where the actor yelled: “Fuck’em, fuck’em,” uncensored.
CNN’s Brian Stelter devoted an entire segment of Sunday’s Reliable Sources to complaining about “Trump’s Anti-Media Playbook.” The chyron at the bottom of the screen suggested that President Trump treats the media with “hostility and mockery,” apparently failing to realize those adjectives perfectly describe the media’s treatment of President Trump. Stelter’s guest for the segment, Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik, engaged in plenty of “hostility and mockery” towards President Trump by referring to him as an “adolescent psychopath” and a “laughingstock.”
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter briefly addressed Joe Biden's harsh, finger-pointing lecture at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy. He played a clip where Biden says he never discussed business with his son. Stelter wasn't buying it: "Well, that seems very, very hard to believe. Obviously, a father's going to talk to his son about his business." That was as skeptical as it would get. Stelter moved on with an all-liberal panel, asking them softball questions with echoes of an internal Democrat tavern talk.
One of the revelations from the character assassination attempt of Justice Brett Kavanaugh by The New York Times was that Leland Keyser, an alleged witness to the allegations of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, was viciously pressured by Blasey Ford’s allies to back up the claims unless she wanted to be discredited with her past history of drug abuse. Well, one of the reporters behind the hit piece did the work for Team Blasey Ford in an appearance on CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” and slimed Keyser’s rebuttal.
News consumers everywhere should prepare for the onslaught of climate change stories ahead of the UN climate summit next week.
Instigated by Columbia Journalism Review and The Nation, more than 250 media entities joined forces to foster urgency and action regarding the climate “crisis” and devote extra time to what CJR claimed was “the defining story of our time.” Partners included CBS, PBS Newshour, Bloomberg, AFP, Getty Images, Adweek, CQ and Roll Call, The Guardian, Newsweek, Rolling Stone and many more including a huge number of local media.
CNN host Brian Stelter opened Sunday’s edition of Reliable Sources with a discussion about the “I” word: “impeachment.” Stelter argued that “President Trump is winning the messaging war about impeachment.” Echoing the talking points Slate’s Dahlia Lithwick made on the show two weeks ago, Stelter claimed that “the list of potentially impeachable conduct grows longer every week.”
CNN media propagandist Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources” by decrying his colleagues in the liberal media for not being more hostile to President Trump during the “Sharpiegate” snafu. He demanded they stop helping Trump with the language they use and frame it as another episode from an unstable president.
Brian Stelter, host of the Reliable Sources program on CNN, apparently didn’t take the Labor Day holiday off, instead writing an article warning people that President Trump’s “falsehood-filled tweets” are “still dangerous” since he and “his allies tell the public almost daily not to believe real reporting.” In fact, Stelter stated that “the frequency and predictability of the attacks on the press don't make them any less damaging” because the postings and “televised tirades are gradually eroding Americans’ share sense of reality.”
On Sunday’s edition of Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter discussed how “writers from both sides of the aisle” have recently weighed in on the concept of “Trump fatigue.” Stelter’s guest for the segment, Slate Senior Editor Dahlia Lithwick, definitely had a severe case of “Trump fatigue.” Lithwick talked about how President Trump was making her “physically ill” and referenced one of her articles arguing that President Trump performs impeachable actions on a weekly basis.
