Stelter hosts a show ironically called “Reliable Sources” which examines the week’s top media stories on Sundays. In reality, it’s a look at how best media was able to trash Trump and his administration during that week. I can say from the outset that the most unreliable source in news today is Reliable Sources. That line got Stelter to block me on Twitter. It’s an interesting sidebar story. After the Mueller witch hunt ended with Team Mueller having to admit that they found zero evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, every day I tweeted a response to one of Stelter’s ridiculous anti Trump posts reminding him that he himself lied every day for two years to his audience about Russian collusion. I got no response. Then, one day he tweeted a promo for the show and I replied with that line, and within seconds I was blocked by the George Costanza clown of CNN.
Here’s a perfect example of the deception that Brian Stelter and CNN throw at the American people. The latest on CNN’s Reliable Sources web page shows a headline “Expert compares Trump’s politics to fascism.” First off, a fascist leader would shut down the news immediately. Donald Trump wakes up every morning to at least 20,000 negatives articles, TV news reports, etc. attacking him, members of his administration and yes, his children. No fascist dictator would ever put up with that. People like Stelter claim Trump is trying to silence the First Amendment when all he is doing is pointing out that the members of Fake News networks are deceitful, lying radical left-wing activists who wouldn’t know the truth if it fell on them out of the sky.
On Tuesday, Stelter had to sit through a series of frustrated C-SPAN callers who gave the audience their opinion of him and his news network, CNN, and it wasn’t pretty. The hilarious part of all of this is the title of Stelter’s new book, “HOAX – Donald Trump, Fox News, and The Dangerous Distortion of Truth.” CNN hasn’t told the truth in years. The very title of the book reveals CNN’s mission; to trash the top two things that expose their daily hypocrisies.
While making an appearance on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, two separate callers criticized Stelter, condemning his anti-Trump obsession and accusing his network of intentionally gaslighting the news cycle. A caller from Minnesota told Stelter and the C-SPAN audience that his new book, Hoax, is propaganda that is going to be used to divide the nation during unprecedented levels of tension across the political aisle. CNN is known for accusing Trump of dividing the nation, but it’s really the leftist news people who are doing that with lies, deceit and besmirchment. Other than wanting to make money and build prestige, that’s probably the end goal for the CNN anchor. He’s part of a Fake News cabal that believes Trump is an illegitimate president who should be removed from office. Stelter has zero integrity though he acts like he does, and he is not a journalist, rather, Brian Stelter is a left-wing activist Jeff Zucker gave a show, and it appears that the mission the CNN Chairman gave him was to attack Donald Trump and his administration no matter the cost in ratings.
“I don’t know if there’s any journalists left at CNN, but I know that if I were to estimate about 300 different distortions or misinformation that we get out of CNN… if you added all that up to 46 months, it comes out to be 300,000-plus distortions of truth,” the caller said. “This is how low you’ll go is that you went out, and you made lies, and you defamed a child, and then, you had to settle out of court to pay this child for distorting information about this young individual.”
“So, I would say, you know, if anything is happening at CNN and anybody who buys your book, it’s really just one of those things that is dividing our nation,” the man continued. “I don’t believe in dividing our nation, it hurts our great nation, so, CNN is really the enemy of the truth.”
Stelter initially said that he was “grateful” for the caller’s criticism (right, and I’m Mary, Queen of Scots) and then he pivoted saying, “there’s been a process of radicalization of media bashing that is absolutely unprecedented,” although he didn’t provide an ounce of evidence to back up his claim. That’s Stelter’s way of diluting honest criticism of him and his industry, by accusing the criticizer, and doing zero self introspection.
Another caller mocked Stelter’s appearance, calling him “Humpty Dumpty” – a nickname for Stelter made popular by Fox News’ Sean Hannity – and attacking CNN’s credibility as a news network. Hannity is more-than-likely a strong reason for his new hateful book.
“There’s a couple comments, one about their chyrons that they put underneath while people are watching things, like the other day they put on ‘Fiery but mostly peaceful protests,'” said the caller. The caller was referring to a scene where a CNN reporter was standing in front of a business that was set ablaze by rioters and he said despite the fires what was going was mostly peaceful. “Yeah, laugh there, Humpty Dumpty, we all know you’re not reliable. You’re nothing but a stooge.”
The caller was referencing a now-viral scene from August’s riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where a CNN reporter stood in with burning buildings in the background while the network’s chyron said, “Fiery But Mostly Peaceful Protests After Police Shooting.” Nearly every story CNN does today has some level of deception on par with this example.
