CNN host Brian Stelter and his network go after Fox News, just about every week, claiming their hosts and analysts are cronies working for President Trump. But Stelter has been caught in his own conflict of interest dilemma. The Reliable Sources host, along with two of his reporter colleagues, was seen socializing with disgraced Democrat congresswoman, Katie Hill in New York over the weekend, according to Page Six. Even after Stelter has had Hill on his show and his network has worked overtime to try to rehabilitate the Democrat’s tarnished reputation.
For days now, the CNN Media Unit has been flailing away at the bizarre notion that the liberal media is NOT trying to use the coronavirus problem to damage President Trump’s standing in an election year….even as CNN and other media outlets are trying to do exactly that. On Sunday, CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter opened with a lecture about how coronavirus is a “nonpartisan illness,” by golly.
It’s easy to predict how Brian Stelter, host of the Sunday Reliable Sources program on CNN, will respond to any disagreements with President Trump and the anchors on the Fox News Channel. He simply dismisses anything they say as simply being wrong. That was obviously the case on Friday, when the network’s chief media correspondent was a guest during a segment of the At This Hour program as hosted by Kate Bolduan, when he dismissed the coverage of the coronavirus crisis as “reprehensible” and an attempt “to make this all about Trump and politics when that’s really not the arena this is being fought in.”
Though the segment blew up on Twitter because The Atlantic’s David Frum described President Trump as so “physically capable” that he couldn’t “pick up a ball,” the arguably more ridiculous part of that Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources” segment was when fill-in host John Avlon led the panel in a mini-freak-out about memes. Together, they claimed memes were responsible for voter suppression and were all part of a Russia election interference scheme.
On Sunday's so-called Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter uncorked a six-minute lecture on one of his favorite topics: How Trump is dragging America into authoritarianism. Stelter led off his show Sunday with another six-minute lecture about how Trump represents something called "democratic backsliding," as he read from the book How Democracies Die and an article titled "10 Ways to Tell If Your President's a Dictator."
Well, it may have taken a while, but CNN host Brian Stelter finally admitted that praising lawyer Michael Avenatti (A.K.A creepy porn lawyer) as a “serious” contender for 2020 wasn’t a smart move. The admission came during the latest Reliable Sources as he was speaking with writers form the left-wing Daily Beast, Lachlan Markey and Asawin Suebsaeng about their new book about how the DC swamp infested President Trump’s administration.
In exercising projection, CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources” sought to decry President Trump’s “imperial presidency” on Sunday by emphasizing how there was no such thing as “right-wing media” vs. “liberal-media,” but, in fact, it was a “propaganda apparatus” vs. a “media apparatus.” Yes, it was the same show that said Trump had killed more people than Hitler, Stalin, and Mao combined, claimed the “future of the Earth” hung on Trump’s removal from office, and insisted Trump was a “destructive cult” leader.
CNN is grasping at straws to explain away Americans waning interest in the impeachment trial. On Reliable Sources Sunday, host Brian Stelter and his CNN colleagues Oliver Darcy and John Avlon blamed it on the “Fox firewall” which apparently keeps the right ignorant of Democrat arguments. Besides dismissing conservatives as indoctrinated, the liberal panel also attacked the Trump administration was “flabby snowflakes” who were used to preferential media treatment.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter organized a panel on Sunday to address a letter posted on CNN.com by 13 former press secretaries -- nine of them with Clinton or Obama, and three of them paid CNN analysts -- demanding regular briefings at the White House, State Department, and Pentagon. But Stelter really hated the White House response:
Sister Toldjah at Red State underlined a bizarre tweet from Brian Stelter, the host of CNN’s weekly Reliable Sources program. As he linked to an op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer by Christine Flowers about Stelter's critique of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch appearing on Fox & Friends, he complained: "Debate tweets here on Twitter! Use print editorial space for more important, and local, issues."
Sunday’s Reliable Sources featured a ten-minute segment painting Republicans and President Trump as liars and trashing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It did not take long for members of the panel to begin comparing Trump’s America to the Soviet Union and the Third Reich.
CNN’s so-called Reliable Sources has become a home for nutty pontificators. Host Brian Stelter has welcomed unethical shrinks who have claimed President Trump was the most prolific killer in human history, a former cult member who claims Trump was a “destructive cult” leader, and Dan Rather. During Sunday’s latest edition, he had on New Yorker editor David Remnick, who proclaimed in all seriousness that the “future of the Earth” hung on Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.
