  • Confessions of a ‘Shocked and Angry’ ‘Advocate for Factual Journalism’ REVIEW: 'Hoax' By Brian Stelter, Sometimes Referred to as 'Humpty Dumpty'

    In his recently published book, Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth, cable news personality Brian Stelter only tells the tabloid version. As noted in the New York Times, Hoax relies on "gratuitous gossip" and "name calling" to deliver an "easy-to-digest but unnuanced conclusion that would play well on cable news." Stelter invites his target readers—college-educated white liberals who probably would've been more excited about a Warren-Buttigieg ticket but can't wait to vote for Biden because the future of our country is at stake—to gorge themselves on righteous anger, the most profitable emotion.

    A sizable portion of the “misinformation” released by the Trump White House originates from stories that first appear on Fox News, CNN media critic Brian Stelter told Yahoo News. “The Fox-Trump feedback loop is unlike anything we’ve seen in media before,” Stelter said. “There’s never been anything like this. ... He gets swamped by misinformation.” While critics have decried Fox News as taking orders from the White House, it’s actually the network that tells Trump what to say, according to Stelter. “A lot of what [Trump] is saying is coming straight from ‘Fox & Friends’ and is coming straight from...
  • QAnon is conspiratorial, dangerous, and growing. And we're talking about it all wrong.

    QAnon is a virtual cult that celebrates President Trump and casts Democratic politicians and other elites as evil child abusers. Aspects of the cult are downright delusional. Last year an FBI office warned that Q adherents are a domestic terrorism threat. Despite all of that, or maybe because of all that, this dangerous nonsense seems to be spreading. It is cropping up in congressional races and national news coverage. In recent weeks many observers of the online information ecosystem have written, with growing concern, about the mainstreaming of QAnon. Reporters like Kevin Roose of The New York Times and Ben...

    CNN’s Brian Stelter quoted an actor from the “Breaking Bad” television show as he tried to support his belief that President Donald Trump is mentally unstable. Stelter’s Monday newsletter included a portion expanding on a comment he made during his Sunday “Reliable Sources” CNN show. “When a grandparent is not well, the entire family feels it,” Stelter wrote, quoting himself from Sunday. “The entire family shares the pain. Thousands of families are going through that right now – and the American family is experiencing it too. When a leader is not well, everyone feels it.” The CNN host then noted...

    Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” anchor Brian Stelter said it is “offensive and otherworldly” for “right-wing” talk radio hosts to question the state of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden’s mental and physical health. Stelter said, “Let’s go on a trip together to a totally alternative universe. You never hear what’s happening there unless you tune in to right-wing talk radio, but you need to know what they are saying because the most popular, most powerful talkers in the country have trained their sights on Joe Biden. What you are about to hear them say is mind-boggling....

    CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter on Monday blamed right-wing media outlets for putting forward the suggestion that Joe Biden shouldn’t debate President Trump. What Stelter said: Stelter was responding to a tweet from’s political editor Guy Benson, who said the push for Biden to skip debates with the president is a “media tempest.” Stelter wrote: “it is mostly a right-wing media tempest, fueled by hour after hour of Fox commentary (not reporting), far removed from campaign reality…”

    CNN's chief media correspondent Brian Stelter may have landed himself in hot water, according to the attorney of Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann. Last week, Sandmann announced that The Washington Post settled the $250 million defamation lawsuit he filed over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder who had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor. This followed the multimillion dollar settlement agreement CNN reached with the teenager back in January. However, Sandmann's attorney, Lin Wood, spotted a retweet from Stelter of a tweet written by attorney Mark Zaid, who speculated about how...

    CNN ^ | Updated 1:05 PM ET, Fri July 3, 2020 | Jim Acosta and Brian Stelter
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, arguably the most trusted man in America, is practically invisible right now. Fauci is not appearing on any of the major US television networks at a brutal stage of the coronavirus pandemic. Appearances by other members of the coronavirus task force are also few and far between. Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Robert Redfield are rarely granting interviews to national news outlets, according to a CNN analysis of the past two workweeks. The officials have busy jobs, to be sure,but communicating with the public is of utmost importance, especially when Covid-19 cases are rising and Americans are...

    In Tuesday night’s “Reliable Sources” newsletter, CNN’s Brian Stelter debunked the “riot” lie about New York City, of course using Fox News’ reporting as the basis for his disgust; you see, Fox News was using days-old footage in its reporting about the riots. Look, I live in Manhattan and I hated what happened in this city on May 31 and June 1. The looting and mayhem was appalling. But it was more than a week ago. The graffiti has been scrubbed off the bodega on my block. The broken windows have been cleaned up. And today I noticed the city’s...

    You’d think at this point, someone close to Brian Stelter would pat him on his little bald head and tell him he keeps stepping on his own … feet. Did he really think it was a good idea to share a CNN poll that says CNN is better than Trump and Fox News? Part of us wonders if he’s just bored and trolling but then we look at the rest of his feed and it seems legit.

    ... "At this point, it's hard to pretend like Stelter is a journalist. The same guy who put Michael Avenatti on air... who treated every allegation against Justice Kavanaugh as the gospel truth and who is happy to peddle tinfoil-hat conspiracy theories about President Trump, can't find his way to even mention serious and contemporaneously corroborated claims of sexual assault against the presumptive Democratic nominee for president," conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News. Avenatti, an attorney, represented adult-film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuits against Trump; he later was convicted in a separate case linked to extortion attempts.

    Instead of respecting and worshiping fragility, anxiety, and vulnerability, it is time to reconsider stoicism and fortitude. In the last week, a 99-year-old World War II veteran from Yorkshire, England, raised more than 31 million British pounds for the National Health Service by walking around his yard in a challenge that then went viral. He is a member of a certain generation regularly taught that when the bugle calls, one should rally around the tattered banner regardless of who is leading the nation to battle.This sentiment was once ingrained in the bloodstream of every civic-minded individual all over the world:...

  • 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...

    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...

    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...
