  • Our Unpatriotic Press Coddles Dictators

    01/08/2020 3:28:44 AM PST · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | January 8, 2020 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
    On Jan. 5, after American drones took out Iranian terrorist mastermind Gen. Qassem Soleimani, CNN's Brian Stelter launched into one of his Sunday-morning sermons, insisting that patriotism flows like a river in America's newsrooms. His definition might vary from yours, however. Patriotism equals tough questioning, the "Reliable Sources" anchor stated in a tweet: "It is patriotic to ask for evidence. To question official accounts. ... It is patriotic to hold our leaders accountable." There's nothing wrong with skeptical questions of our government. But why is it impossible to celebrate blowing up the man responsible for the deaths of untold thousands,...

    CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter remained mum on Sunday after a guest slammed his network for keeping commentators supportive of President Trump on its payroll. The Atlantic columnist David Frum appeared on Stelter's weekend program "Reliable Sources" and was asked about his previous claim that Trump got "favorable, flattering news coverage" from the media despite his performance, and his assertion that the media "should be more critical." Frum doubled down -- and even dragged Stelter's own network, suggest that CNN was running into problems because it was trying to be "fair."
  • CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’ with Brian Stelter hits rock bottom in key demo

    12/30/2019 9:31:39 PM PST · by Conserv · 45 replies
    CNN’s beleaguered media show “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter hit an embarrassing new low on Dec. 22, when it averaged only 85,000 viewers among a key age group. Stelter regularly touts the significance of the news demographic of adults age 25-54 but the dismal performance marked his lowest viewership of 2019 in the category. The dismal performance from Stelter came as Fox News’ “Media Buzz,” a direct timeslot competitor, thumped CNN’s “Reliable Sources” across the board in 2019. Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” averaged only 748,000 total viewers for the year prior to its 2019 finale on Dec. 29, while “Media Buzz”...

    CNN contributor April Ryan and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter attacked black Republican Kimberly Klacik on Saturday, implying she drove Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) to his death last month after her video exposé on rat and trash infested Baltimore neighborhoods in his Congressional District provoked a national firestorm from President Trump. Klacik, 37, was attacked by Ryan and Stelter over her announcement of her candidacy for Cummings’ vacant seat. **** Ryan wrote on Twitter, “This is the woman who created all the controversy that made @realDonaldTrump go after @RepCummings and Baltimore. Cummings never got over the attack on him and...

    CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on "Legendary Journalist" Sam Donaldson to unload the usual liberal mantras on Sunday. That's how CNN tagged Sam -- "Legendary Journalist" -- not only on screen, but even in the CNN transcript. Donaldson raised eyebrows much smaller than his by claiming that Trump fans are "fixated" on narrowing the country: "They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again. They don't want the diversity." DONALDSON: I'm telling you something, if public opinion is strongly for the impeachment and the conviction of President Trump, he...

    A former Trump Organization executive says she thinks President Donald Trump may resign rather than face possible removal from office by impeachment. "He does a lot of things to save face," Barbara Res, a former Trump Organization vice president, told CNN's Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources Sunday. "It would be very, very, very bad for him to be impeached," Res said. "I don't know that he'll be found guilty but I don't know that he wants to be impeached. I think that's what this panic is about. And my gut [instinct] is that he'll leave office, he'll resign. Or make...

    Actor Robert De Niro was interviewed by CNN’s Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources Sunday. During the interview, he dropped a couple of F-bombs against the people at Fox News. The host acted more amused than anything else at the actor’s D-List performance.De Niro caused an audible “Woah” from someone off-screen when he said “F**k ’em. F**k ’em” in response to Stelter’s question about critics at Fox News. He used the same language during the Tony Awards in June 2018. So, Stelter asked why he uses that language. “We are in a terrible situation.” “Sorry. Sorry,” the actor said.“This is...

    CNN’s Brian Stelter used his latest Reliable Sources monologue to bash Donald Trump’s media defenders for their dismissive reactions to the president and his allies pressuring Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden. Stelter began by remarking on how Trump is “leading a disinformation campaign” with his attacks on Democrats and the media, all while the firestorm continues to swirl around the whistleblower report about his conversations with foreign leaders. This led to Stelter taking note of how Trump’s media and political allies are railing against the whistleblower instead off addressing the disturbing promises Trump supposedly made to foreign leaders. “That’s the...

    No sweat! Or so CNN's Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter must have thought when he victoriously tweeted about how President Donald Trump was supposedly completely wrong about weather conditions. Stelter seemed to forget that something other than rain can get people wet in the humid South, namely Fayetteville, North Carolina where Trump held a rally on Monday. First let us see Stelter's "gotcha" moment in which he thinks he caught the President in a lie only to be brutally shot down in a most mocking manner by those on Twitter who reminded him about what else could cause people waiting...

    In 1969, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross wrote that there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Fifty years later, anti-Trump journalists have been experiencing the first four simultaneously since Wednesday, when former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before two House committees. The Trump-hating media can’t come to terms with the final stage – acceptance of their grief. And that will elude them even if President Trump is reelected and stays in the White House until 2025. Journalists wrote and broadcast countless stories saying Hillary Clinton would defeat Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Many have never been...

    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. While CNN’s Saturday lineup featured a handful of news briefs about Epstein’s return to prison, by Sunday the serial child trafficker and...

    Investigative journalist Carl Bernstein is calling on the media to do a better job covering special counsel Robert Mueller's report. Speaking on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter on Sunday, Bernstein said the media is focused on the fighting over the report instead of its actual contents. “I think we’ve made a big mistake in the press about how we’ve covered the Mueller report,” Bernstein said. “We’ve gotten totally wrapped up in the warfare in the Congress between Republicans and Democrats and is there obstruction of justice or is there not obstruction of justice.” Bernstein, best known for his reporting...

    Why does CNN continue to defend Antifa? CNN’s “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter downplayed Antifa after several alleged members of the group brutally assaulted conservative journalist Andy Ngo over the weekend. And, it also appears that he aired an edited clip on his show, one in which omitted the Antifa thugs actually assaulting Ngo. Ngo, a reporter and editor for Quillette, has been reporting from the ground in Portland, Oregon, on Antifa rallies and how violent the far-left group is towards anyone who does not cower to their demands. While covering a protest over the weekend in Portland, Ngo was...

    CNN's Brian Stelter, the host of "Reliable Sources," asked his panel one simple question: has the media pushed the idea of impeaching President Donald Trump? The responses to the question are seriously nothing shy of amazing... or rather delusional. "I have a kind of provocative question here: Is the press rooting for impeachment? Do journalists want to see the president impeached?" Stetler asked. " there something to the idea, Sam, that newsrooms, journalists, want to see impeachment hearings?" According to Samantha Vinograd, President Obama's former Senior National Security Advisor, there's a difference between journalists and analysts. Journalists report straight news...

    60 Minutes corespondent Scott Pelley says he was let go as host of the CBS Evening News because he spoke up to his bosses about the “hostile” workplace within the network’s news division. In an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Pelley explains, “We’ve been through a dark period of the last several years of incompetent management and sort of a hostile work environment within the news division.

    CNN is planning to cut up to 300 jobs, "many being older employees with years at the network," according to a report on Monday. According to FTVLive, a website that monitors the television industry, "Word is that just under 200 people will be pink slipped and just over 100 will be offered a buyout." Staffers are reportedly calling the cuts a "massive brain drain" because so many veteran employees are being given pink slips. The website obtained an email that Tony Maddox, the executive vice president and managing director of CNN International, shared with staff announcing his departure. "After 21...
