    “Is the potato baked?” a friend said to me about the Stelter rumors that are swirling.Ten days ago Axios reported that CNN’s new boss, Chris Licht, had zeroed in on Stelter and Jim Acosta as particularly egregious partisans within a network line-up that reliably tilts liberal. Licht wants the new CNN to be less sensationalistic — no more “breaking news” banners unless there really is breaking news, for instance — and less overtly hostile to Republicans. Licht is “determined to tamp down spectacle and has discouraged the presentation of content in an alarmist fashion,” a source told Fox News. He’s...

    We've seen a few recent stories where Normals hit back against The Radical Left and the stuffy Vichy Republicans would be quick to sniff that "It's not who we are!": and condemn the Normals that they claim to represent. To quickly recap some fronts in this battle, the 47 year old Mistress of Doxxing, Taylor Lorenz, has had friends and family harassed, Candace Owens has been knocking on the door of leaders of the BLM (No, not Burn Loot Murder - it's now Build Large Mansions), while a few members of the Conservasphere have turned XiNN's Brian Stelter into a...

    Former Fox News anchor and now former CNN+ anchor Chris Wallace admitted Sunday night his professional future remains unclear. When asked by moderator Jacqueline Adams if he had any personal revelations to share following the shutdown of CNN+ last week, the 74-year-old joked he had no breaking news to share. “Frankly, what I’m mostly concerned about right now, and very, is my team and hundreds of other people … that had jobs at CNN+,” Wallace said. “Some of them had left CNN to go to streaming. Some of them had left other places, moved across the country. And so I...

    CNN host Brian Stelter claimed Sunday on “Reliable Sources” that the failed attempt to make CNN+ a viable streaming service was because of the merger of the new owner’s Warner Bros. Discovery. Stelter said, “What a turbulent week for major media companies with CNN, Netflix, Disney and Twitter all left spinning with no stopping in sight. Here at CNN, new ownership decided to shut down the CNN+ streaming service less than a month after it was launched by the previous management team. The u-turn was front-page news, stunning news and painful news for everyone involved. Years of development possibly down...

    It was a tumultuous news cycle this week, with scores of candidates to choose from for the week’s top knucklehead. Our Commander-in-Chief allowed himself to be manhandled by the Easter Bunny, and his lady in waiting, Vice-President Kamala Harris, waxed poetic about how exciting space is. Yet neither of those options even receive an honorable mention this week. Ultimately, we could not ignore the imbecilic decision of former Fox News host Chris Wallace, whose defection to CNN has been looking worse with every passing day. This week’s announcement that CNN+ is closing its doors less than a month after they...
  • Stelter: 'Too Early to Know' if CNN+ Was 'a Success or a Failure' (right, let's wait and see)

    Unflinching from the disastrous result of the “experiment” that was CNN+, company man and host Brian Stelter was defiant on Friday’s edition of his dying streaming show, Reliable Sources Daily. He proclaimed it to be “a worthy venture” for the third-place cable network and suggested it was “too early to know” if the 1-month-old streaming service “was a success or a failure.” And he even lashed out at his new bosses at Warner Brothers Discovery for bringing “suffering” with them.

    Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Monday evening that he knows that CNN promotes false news reporting because he witnessed the far-left network try to cause conflict during the Ferguson, Missouri riots back in 2014. Dorsey made the revelation in a response to a tweet from Miss Universe Iraq 2017 Sarah Abdali Idan who said, “Even @CNN sometimes sell false news. I know this from covering Iraq events in 2019. People need to understand every media is prone to either mistakes or deliberate corruption. Do your own investigation before believing what they’re selling you.” Dorsey responded, “I know this...

    A mask off Jack Dorsey went after CNN in a series of tweets in which the Twitter founder accused the legacy media network of deliberately creating division in society. The controversy started when CNN’s Brian Stelter tweeted an article accusing Fox News host Tucker Carlson of “always selling the same thing…selling doubt.” “And you all are selling hope?” Dorsey responded. and you all are selling hope? — jack⚡️ (@jack) April 19, 2022 “They’re selling truth, which is hope-agnostic,” Democrat pollster Spiers tweeted. “It’s supposed to inform you, not make you feel some kind of way.” However, Dorsey wasn’t having any...

    The Atlantic last week hosted a conference titled “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” at the University of Chicago, where I’m a student. Barack Obama, Amy Klobuchar, Anne Applebaum, Jeffrey Goldberg, Ben Smith, Brian Stelter, and other boldface names studded the program, alongside many lesser-known members of the prestige press. They would gather, as a news release put it, to explore “the organized spread of disinformation and strategies to respond to it.” The Atlantic gabfest was billed as a space for rigorous dialogue, where the light of truth would scatter the darkness of disinformation. But the dialogue and criticism, it...

    This week, the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics (IOP) and The Atlantic magazine hosted a “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference, and we have to hand it to IOP Director David Axlerod for bringing in true experts on the subject. The conference featured some of America’s greatest purveyors of disinformation, such as Barack Obama, Brian Stelter, Anne Applebaum, and a few token conservatives, including Jonah Goldberg and Adam Kinzinger. The media, government, and academia elites speaking at the conference weren’t expecting to be challenged as they self-righteously spewed more lies—but our team at the Chicago Thinker was prepared...

    A college student has ripped into CNN’s Brian Stelter for being “right up there” on delivering false narratives after members of the liberal media accused Fox News of being a “purveyor of disinformation”. The CNN anchor was a guest at the University of Chicago’s panel discussion on ‘Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy’ when a college student didn’t hold back arguing the network had made several mistakes including failing to report on the Hunter Biden laptop story. “You’ve all spoken extensively about Fox News being a purveyor of disinformation but CNN is right up there with them,” college freshman Christopher...

    About three weeks before the 2020 election, the New York Post published a bombshell, election-changing story about presidential candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter, that, if true, derailed Joe Biden's claim to know nothing about his son's multimillion-dollar influence peddling. The Post claimed: "Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post. "The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that...

    New York (CNN Business)In a forthcoming book, a pair of New York Times reporters and CNN political analysts report that President Joe Biden "assessed" Fox News "as one of the most destructive forces in the United States." The reporters, Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns, say that Biden was even more critical of Fox Corp patriarch Rupert Murdoch. According to the book, Biden told an unnamed associate in mid-2021 that Murdoch was "the most dangerous man in the world."

    CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter could not answer why there is a “rush to dismiss Hunter [Biden’s laptop investigation] as not a relevant story” while quite a bit of coverage has gone to conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and the text messages of his wife, Ginni. While discussing the media’s influence on election narratives, the Reliable Sources panel on Sunday addressed whether Thomas should recuse himself in forthcoming Supreme Court election cases in light of his wife's texts that show she asked former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to help overturn the 2020 elections.

    Incoming CNN boss Chris Licht plans to nix the network's left-leaning commentary when he assumes the role of president this May, insiders say, and has already engaged in talks with rival Fox News about halting its aggressive coverage of them. Former CBS exec Licht, 50, who headed Stephen Colbert's Late Show for six years until it was announced he was replacing ousted boss Jeff Zucker last month, has already begun closed door conversations with key figures close to the conservative news network, two sources close to the matter told The Daily Beast Tuesday. Licht reportedly told certain Fox reporters and...

    CNN’s media correspondent Brian Stelter continued to run cover for NPR on Sunday, devoting only two minutes on his show to the now-infamous mask report that has been refuted by three Supreme Court justices. Last week, the left-wing anchor's newsletter praised NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg as "incredibly well-sourced" after she reported Chief Justice John Roberts "in some form" asked the justices to wear masks because of the omicron surge since Justice Sonia Sotomayor has diabetes, and Justice Neil Gorsuch refused.

    As mentioned earlier, Fox News is recognizing its 25th anniversary today, a success story no matter how you look at it. The network was built from scratch, had all manner of competitive obstacles placed in front, and has been the focus of wrath from many in the media. All they have done is gradually become a market force, an industry leader, and a political influencer. And Brian Stelter cannot take it. While there are many in the press delivering various degrees of veiled praise and outright scorn for the network today, Stelter’s ode to Fox is the most revealing. He...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” CNN Chief Media Correspondent and host Brian Stelter said CNN covered the scandal around New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) “just the same we would any other story.” And “Ultimately, isn’t that what matters?” Stelter acknowledged that CNN telling Chris Cuomo he couldn’t cover his brother once Gov. Cuomo got into trouble after letting Chris Cuomo interview his brother earlier is “an odd conflict. But I don’t think if we open the journalism ethics book, there’s no page for this. … This was definitely awkward for CNN, though.”
