  • 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 chief media correspondent Brian Stelter has demonstrated yet again why he is perhaps the most indispensable name in cable news. The host of Reliable Sources recently went above and beyond the call of duty in his quest to speak truth to power by performing a thorough spellcheck of President Donald Trump's tweets. "Everybody makes spelling mistakes," Stelter said in opening the five-minute segment devoted entirely to Trump's typos. "I do, everybody does. But on Twitter, Donald Trump makes a lot more of them than most people." Stelter explained that the president's spelling mistakes were especially relevant because "he's been...

    As soon as Shep Smith signed off Fox News on Friday, he rode down a freight elevator to the underground garage where a car and driver were waiting. His departure was emotional enough as is -- he didn't want a tearful goodbye in his studio or the newsroom. He knew his colleagues would have questions and concerns. The big question: What will Fox's news operation look like without him? Among rank and file staffers and even some of the network's anchors, there is deep concern that the news side of Fox will be further squeezed by the opinion shows that...

    Wednesday on CNN’s “Tonight,” community host Brian Stelter stated Individuals may see President Donald Trump’s “mental instability” although his tweets and statements. Stelter stated “When you have the president saying fake news all the time talking about real reporting when you have a president who can’t even stand seeing a Democrat on Fox News, it does bring up his mental instability in a way that is uncomfortable but really important to talk about. It’s something that everyone sees happening —” Lemon requested, “Mental instability? What do you mean by that?” Stelter stated, “Mental instability. We all see it. We all...

    Media Equalizer ^ | 7/2/2019 | Martin Walsh
    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...

    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. I lost my job at the evening news because I wouldn’t stop complaining to management about the hostile work environment.” Pelley — who served as anchor of the CBS...

    CNN ^ | Sat May 4, 2019 | CNN’s Brian Stelter, propagandist
    New York (CNN)Facebook barred seven users from its services earlier this week, citing its policies against "dangerous individuals and organizations." Now President Donald Trump is siding with the people who were banned and railing against social media "censorship" -- all while using one of his favorite social sites. The president shared more than a dozen tweets about the subject on Friday night and Saturday morning. And he conveniently avoided the fact that some of the banned users are extremists who make a living by deceiving their fans. His posts were a rallying cry, full of resentment toward Big Tech. He...

    Stelter wrote in his newsletter “Reliable Sources” Wednesday night that viewers aren’t tuning in to CNN and MSNBC because “there hasn’t been much news” since special counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report on Russian collusion to Attorney General Bill Barr. Fox News has not been affected by the alleged slow news week, Stelter reasoned, because Barr’s letter on the Mueller findings is “being celebrated like a sequel to election night.”

    American Greatness ^ | 3/25/2019 | Karl Notturno
    Probably not. But how can we really know for sure? After two years of hype by a captivated and deranged media, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged campaign “collusion” with the Russians was completed and the Justice Department’s initial summary of the report was released over the weekend. And surprise! It was a complete dud. And now we will have to listen to the corporate leftist media explain why they weren’t really wrong about anything and how they actually did good journalistic work. CNN’s Stelter noted that while political commentators did repeatedly allege Russian collusion on the “rolling talk...

    CNN seems to have forgotten the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." After filing suit over the revocation of Jim Acosta's hard pass to the White House and winning, that network's media beat reporter is upset. Speaking on CNN's Newsroom, Brian Stelter seems certain that danger lurks in the new open and transparent rules provided by the White House in response to the judge's demand for due process on decisions over revocation of access to press conferences or the White House. Joe DePaolo of Mediaite writes: Brian Stelter stated his belief that nothing has been resolved, and the...

    The first thing you see at a Trump campaign rally is the line. There was a long line in the pouring rain ahead of the October 26 rally in Charlotte, North Carolina. Some devotees had started lining up the night before. Others came straight from work on Friday afternoon and waited to be screened by the Secret Service. It had the look and feel of a political concert — a celebration — but with an angry edge. Friday was my first time attending a Trump rally. I was two years too late. I should have gone to a rally in...

    t’s well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question’s the President’s mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday’s Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a “credibility crisis.” And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their “no good, very bad week.” After highlighting what would be discussed...
  • CNN Tries, Fails to Get Donald Trump Kicked off Twitter

    01/05/2018 8:55:38 AM PST · by MNDude · 28 replies
    CNN’s Brian Stelter asked Twitter on Tuesday whether President Donald Trump’s tweet threatening North Korea with his “much bigger & more powerful” nuclear button violated the social media network’s terms of service. Calling Trump’s tweet evidence of “madness,” the host of Reliable Sources clearly hoped not only to obtain an answer to a question, but to see Trump suspended or removed from Twitter. Stelter and other Trump-haters cited Twitter’s rule against violent threats: “You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people.” They were...
  • CNN’s Brian Stelter: Sean Hannity’s Show Should Be Renamed ‘The Clinton Scandal Hour’

    Before speaking to Media Matters president Angelo Carusone about Sean Hannity, CNN’s Brian Stelter proposed a name change for the Fox News host’s primetime show. “I think it’s time for a renaming,” Stelter said, “It really is the Hillary Clinton horror show. Let’s call it the Clinton scandal hour.” Hannity has, of course, devoted a lot of coverage to Clinton scandals, possibly reaching his peak last week with a massive six-part Clinton conspiracy chart. Stelter said Hannity clearly “delights” in Clinton coverage, partly to avoid controversies surrounding President Trump. Stelter’s previously suggested Fox & Friends could be easily changed to...

    breitbart ^ | PAM KEY Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” during a back-and-forth, host Brian Stelter asked White House counselor Kellyanne Conway why attacking CNN made “America great again?” Conway said CNN is “an outlet that has been incredibly unfair against this president.” Stelter asked, “So, in your first answer, you made several points about the administration’s accomplishments. But you started by attacking CNN. Why does attacking CNN make America great again?” Conway shot back, “I’m sure you want that to go viral. I’m not attacking CNN.” It continued for over 20 minutes with Stelter referencing “scandals” causing Conway to ask, “What are the...

    Every elected official in this country was vetted by those in their jurisdictions, the people voted for them, and they know who's representing them. Who asked the public if they regarded Brian Stelter enough of a "reliable source" to be on CNN reviewing anything? Were any of us consulted when a pouty, irritatingly nasal-voiced Brooke Baldwin was going to be an afternoon option? Anyone get a heads up we were going to have to endure a Chris Cuomo or Anderson Cooper and were we ever offered a choice between them and someone who just may have actually been qualified for...
