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.”
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.
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.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter offers a weekly guest list full of liberal journalists, and then occasionally he interviews a conservative....if the objective is to offer a conservative underlining one of Stelter's favorite points. That happened again on Christmas Eve, when S.E. Cupp, host of a talk show on HLN (a sister network of CNN), sounded the company talking points on how the "mainstream media" are a "pillar of democracy" and attacked Fox News as resembling a dictator's channel. She tickled Stelter's ears by repeating his charge from earlier this year that criticizing the press is somehow tantamount to a "dictator tactic."
This past Sunday on CNN’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter asked this irony-filled question to NPR Media Correspondent David Folkenflik: “You and I have covered Fox News for years. Is it appropriate to call the channel a news channel?”
If you thought CNN’s open anti-Trump hysteria couldn’t get any wilder, then buckle up, because at the end of Reliable Sources on Sunday host Brian Stelter led a segment dedicated to press crackdowns by dictators and how the President’s “fake news” call-outs were helping them. Stelter began the segment with a monologue about the case of “award-winning Mexican journalist, Emilio Gutierrez, and his son,” who was staying in the U.S. illegally and were now detained and facing deportation.
In one of the most asinine discussions about the liberal media’s credibility problem, CNN host Brian Stelter took to Reliable Sources on Sunday to defend his outlet and the rest of the media for the latest swarm of fake news stories plaguing the country. And offering no apology to the public for muddying the discourse, Stelter defended their precious anonymous sources while his guests claimed such reckless mistakes were why the public should trust what they say.
After starting Sunday’s Reliable Sources by shredding ABC and Brian Ross for their disastrous reporting regarding Michael Flynn’s plea deal, host Brian Stelter retreated to more familiar ground: Claiming President Trump was insane and was a threat to everyone.
To promote his Monday night special glorifying late-night comedians bashing Trump, CNN’s Brian Stelter closed out his Sunday show by showing off his giddy interview with Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik. Stelter was like a kid in a candy store as he laughed along with his guest, joking about Trump’s speech patterns and mocking him for being out of shape.
CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter invited on HLN’s S.E. Unfiltered host S.E. Cupp for an illuminating 22-minute podcast released Friday dealing with conservative distrust in the news media. It featured solid points by Cupp and complaints by Stelter that mistakes in the media have unfairly been “amplified by some right-wing outlets as if the entire press is culpable.”
During Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning media sermon on CNN’s Reliable Sources, he and his panel of media critics decried what they called "negative partisan" media and blamed it for dividing the country. Sounds pretty accurate, right? But according to them most of the blame for a divided country rested on the shoulders of conservative and right-leaning media outlets.
Over the past two weeks, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats had been under increased legal scrutiny following the revelations that the FBI had been monitoring Russian spies trying to influence the Uranium One deal, and that Clinton’s campaign and the Democrats had paid a firm to use foreign agents for opposition research. But according to CNN’s Brian Stelter, there really wasn’t any news there and it was all a part of a Fox News conspiracy to leave people confused about the facts.
