In a rare moment of truth-telling on CNN Sunday, New York Times Opinion staff writer and editor Bari Weiss openly admitted to the Reliable Sources panel that the media was purposely ignoring the blatant anti-Semitism espoused by Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) because of President Trump.
The liberal media’s narrative that President Trump was somehow responsible for the mass shooting in El Paso last weekend has apparently expanded to also include Fox News. According to Univision anchor Enrique Acevedo, during an appearance on CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources”, Trump and Fox News host Tucker Carlson were responsible for rhetoric “transcending into violence, into bullets”, and into lives lost.
In another organized effort by the liberal media to amplify their narrative about President Trump allegedly being a racist, CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” introduced a panel loaded with media folks from Baltimore in order to denounce the President, after a Twitter battle with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) about his district.
CNN claims its Reliable Sources program "examines the media world -- telling the story behind the story -- how the news gets made." But Brian Stelter's show, and his Reliable Sources newsletter have become something much different. It's become first and foremost about ranting against President Trump as a liar, a racist, as mentally unfit, as a budding authoritarian -- in short, it's drenched in leftist ideology. Journalism is secondary.
Stelter's newsletter after the Mueller hearing effectively demonstrates this.
Dan Rather doesn’t have any self awareness. The disgraced ex-CBS anchor, who resigned in the wake of an early example of fake news, went on CNN, Sunday, to insist that liars need to be called out for their falsehoods. Appearing on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter and defended the so-called liberal “Squad” of Democratic congresswomen. Saying of Donald Trump, Rather insisted, “He lies repeatedly about the four young women congresswomen. He has lied repeatedly.”
After the New York Times spent the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 trashing America and touting Soviet Russia’s liberal values, it should come as no surprise that CNN would follow suit. Sunday, Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on a socialist to explain to his audience why President Trump and Fox News were wrong; the left's embrace of socialism was all about “freedom” and saving America from “dangerous far-right populism.”
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter crusaded on television and in his daily newsletter that President Trump's tweets against far-left members of Congress must be described as "racist." He actually attacked the broadcast networks for using more disinterested terms like "Many say" or "Democrats say" instead of just declaring the president's a racist. This is the Jim Acosta School of Journalism.
On Sunday, CNN’s Brian Stelter and Phil Mattingly warped the recent sentencing of child abuser and Democratic mega-donor Jeffrey Epstein into a story about (who else?) Donald Trump. Following the resignation of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta — who had come under scrutiny for a shockingly favorable plea deal he had previously granted Epstein as a federal prosecutor — both Stelter and Mattingly brandished Acosta’s resignation as the latest example of instability and high turnover within the White House.
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.”
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.
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.
