    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 ó a celebration ó 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...

  • Stelter Declares Day 470 of White House ĎCredibility Crisisí, Dismisses Mediaís

    t‚Äôs well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question‚Äôs the President‚Äôs mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday‚Äôs Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a ‚Äúcredibility crisis.‚ÄĚ And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their ‚Äúno good, very bad week.‚ÄĚ After highlighting what would be discussed...
  • CNN Tries, Fails to Get Donald Trump Kicked off Twitter

    CNNís Brian Stelter asked Twitter on Tuesday whether President Donald Trumpís tweet threatening North Korea with his ďmuch bigger & more powerfulĒ nuclear button violated the social media networkís terms of service. Calling Trumpís tweet evidence of ďmadness,Ē 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 Twitterís rule against violent threats: ďYou may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people.Ē They were...
  • CNNís Brian Stelter: Sean Hannityís Show Should Be Renamed ĎThe Clinton Scandal Hourí

    Before speaking to Media Matters president Angelo Carusone about Sean Hannity, CNNís Brian Stelter proposed a name change for the Fox News hostís primetime show. ďI think itís time for a renaming,Ē Stelter said, ďIt really is the Hillary Clinton horror show. Letís call it the Clinton scandal hour.Ē 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 ďdelightsĒ in Clinton coverage, partly to avoid controversies surrounding President Trump. Stelterís previously suggested Fox & Friends could be easily changed to...

    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...

    In one of the last segments on Sundayís Reliable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter spent nearly four and half minutes whining about the public, specifically Trump supporters, who donít believe the news media. ďIf you don't believe the Ďmedia,í then you probably don't believe that the Trump administration has had a dysfunctional few months,Ē he chided at the start of the segment. ďIf you don't believe the Ďmedia,í you might not believe Russia's meddling in last year's election is a very big deal.Ē Stelter admitted that the distrust in media started long before President Trump, but he rested its current...

    CNN‚Äôs resident anti-Donald Trump alarmist Brian Stelter took to his show, ‚ÄúReliable Sources,‚ÄĚ Sunday and issued his arguably most dire/bonkers warning about the president yet. ‚ÄúDo citizens in dictatorships recognize what's happening right here right now,‚ÄĚ he sneered, ‚ÄúAre they looking at the first two days of the Trump administration and saying, ‚ÄėOh, that's what my leader does?‚Äô‚ÄĚ Stelter‚Äôs cries of despot were triggered by Trump doing what all politicians do, exaggerate their own performance. Stelter showed nothing but contempt for the president as he ridiculously asked, ‚ÄúWill President Trump deny reality on a daily basis? Will he make up...

    On Sunday's Reliable Sources on CNN, during a discussion of the possibility that the Russian government actively tried to thwart Hillary Clinton from getting elected, host Brian Stelter at one point wondered if Russia's ability to exploit Trump not winning the popular vote means there's a "national emergency" in Donald Trump's election that the media are afraid to give light to out of fear of being called "partisan." After former Russia Today anchor Liz Wahl worried that Russia was trying to "undermine democracy" in the U.S. with "propaganda," Stelter followed up: "Let's go there. Let's go there directly. I mean,...

    New York Times ^ | January 21, 2011 | BRIAN STELTER
    On his daily radio and television shows, Glenn Beck has elevated once-obscure conservative thinkers onto best-seller lists. Recently, he has elevated a 78-year-old liberal academic to celebrity of a different sort, in a way that some say is endangering her life. Frances Fox Piven, a City University of New York professor, has been a primary character in Mr. Beckís warnings about a progressive take-down of America. Ms. Piven, Mr. Beck says, is responsible for a plan to ďintentionally collapse our economic system.Ē Her name has become a kind of shorthand for ďenemyĒ on Mr. Beckís Fox News Channel program, which...

    Foxís Volley With Obama Intensifying By BRIAN STELTER October 11, 2009 Attacking the news media is a time-honored White House tactic but to an unusual degree, the Obama administration has narrowed its sights to one specific organization, the Fox News Channel, calling it, in essence, part of the political opposition. ďWeíre going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent,Ē said Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, in a telephone interview on Sunday. ďAs they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we donít need to pretend that this is the way that...
