In recent days, liberal New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has targeted Fox News and its parent company News Corp with accusations of damaging the country. In an appearance during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN, he defended his claims and fantasized about how well off the country would be if News Corp-owned news outlets didn’t exist.
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is infamous for his ridiculous and hyperbolic pontifications against President Trump and his over the top adulation for the media. Those two points met yet again during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” when the hyperventilating CNN host decried the President’s attacks on the press and declared Trump was leading, what he called, a “hate movement” akin to Stalin and Hitler.
In the days since President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin, the liberal media have been bringing back their Russian collusion narrative in a very big way. They’re now openly pushing claims Trump committing treason, a crime punishable by death, and have been growing bold in suggesting the President was a Russian agent. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter even boasted about their new courage during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources."
President Trump was set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, and the liberal media were in full campaign mode as they pushed speculation the President was a Russian agent meeting with his handler. CNN’s Brian Stelter admitted as much during Sunday’s Reliable Sources, saying, “Trump opponents will speculate that he's really a Russian agent, having a meeting with his handler, betraying America.” While he did say that, Stelter also declared that no one could trust the President’s account of the meeting and gave those conspiracy theories room to grow.
On CNN's Reliable Sources on Sunday, Vox.com's Ezra Klein lamented the attention President Donald Trump continues to receive, whining that his rallies and tweets are crowding out "other important issues." Klein wants the establishment press and cable news — by that, he clearly means everyone but Fox — to pay less attention to Trump, even though he effectively admitted that doing so would cause hits to ratings and online traffic (Earth to Ezra: You're in charge of a business). Fox, which is already crushing its rivals, would probably love it if the rest of the press were to follow Klein's suggestion.
On Sunday's MSNBC Live, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg again showed her blatant double standard in being quick to label conservative justices as "very conservative" but painting liberal justices as being more "centrist." Appearing as a guest on Sunday's MSNBC Live, Totenberg claimed that three of the current U.S. Supreme Court justices are "very hardcore people," "hard core to the right." She also claimed that Chief Justice John Roberts was viewed as "very, very conservative" until he was "savaged by the far right" over his ObamaCare vote.
For many years, Fox News’ ratings had been blowing competitors like CNN completely out of the water. So, it’s no surprise that CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter would target them with accusations of ‘state-run media’ in the Trump-era. During Sunday’s edition of the show, Stelter equated the relationship between Trump and Fox News as a twisted “love story.” He even tried to re-write history by arguing there had “never” been anything like it in American Politics, which was not true.
You can count on CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter to stay true to the trash-Trump parade. At the liberal Aspen Ideas Festival, he interviewed Washington Post executive editor Marty Baron. Stelter claimed to speak for the crowd when he began with the question “Are we living through a national emergency? And if so, how in the heck should journalists be covering it that way?”
Since the beginning of the Trump administration, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had become infamous for his out of control shouting, grandstanding, and childish antics during press briefings and other televised White House events. So, during a special appearance on the network’s Reliable Sources, Acosta defending his actions and at one point proclaimed that if he was sent to Hell, “I'll still be shouting at the Devil, is the way I look at it.”
The insane rhetoric used by the left in the media has reached an unbelievable fever pitch. Anywhere right of center on immigration is deemed racist, Nazi, and criminal. On CNN’s Reliable Sources on June 24, with host Brian Stelter, actor George Takei compared illegal immigration detention to the Japanese internment camps that happened in the 1940s. Stelter began the conversation with an ominous note, saying that there “is an undercurrent of racism and intolerance in the debate about immigration.”
After the liberal media went wild for a photoshopped Time magazine cover depicting President Trump looking down at a crying immigrant girl, it was exposed that the girl was not separated from her family after all. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday to defend his outlet’s deceptive and misleading cover. Meanwhile, host Brian Stelter was worried about right-wing media pouncing on the story.
On Thursday, CNN analyst and Playboy reporter, Brian Karem had an absolute meltdown during the White House press briefing where he screamed at Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the administration’s immigration policies. The rage-fueled outburst was lauded by some and condemned by many, but during an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, host Brian Stelter pushed back and asked Karem if he wanted to apologize. Of course, the Karem refused and dug in his heels.
