CNN host Brian Stelter was seemingly left surprised on Sunday after a guest on “Reliable Sources” bucked his narrative on White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s alleged insult of reporter Peter Doocy.

In January, President Joe Biden was caught on a hot mic calling Doocy, a White House correspondent for Fox News, a stupid son of a b****.”

During an interview on the left-wing podcast “Pod Save America” last week, Psaki was asked whether she agrees with Biden’s insult.

“He works for a network that provides people with questions that, nothing personal to any individual including Peter Doocy, but might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a b****,” Psaki responded, adding that she appreciated how Doocy handled Biden’s insult with “grace.”

Whereas Stelter defended Psaki, Lynn Sweet, Washington bureau chief for the Chicago Sun-Times, condemned Psaki for being unprofessional.

“She got lulled into losing her discipline. This podcast is made by her friends. They go back to the Kerry campaign. They worked in the Obama White House,” Sweet said.

“She was forgetting what her real job is, which is to communicate on behalf of the president. OK? She even repeated some of the swear words that the questioner asked in the question, upping the ante,” she added

After commending Psaki for acknowledging Doocy’s “grace,” Sweet said, “One other quick thing: It’s not a negative to consult your colleagues on what question to ask.”

Stelter responded to Sweet’s remarks with a puzzled look, only uttering, “Hmm, right,” before moving on.

“So, they’re defending his honor.” @brianstelter a few days ago was smirking at Fox’s “outrage” and implying Fox’s defense of Doocy was untrue and Psaki’s comment was fine.

However on Sunday @lynnsweet had a “little different view,” saying Psaki “was forgetting what her real job is,” and she appeared to catch @brianstelter off-guard in saying, “it’s not a negative to consult your colleagues on what question to ask.”

Last Friday, Stelter defended Psaki and suggested that Doocy is a puppet for Fox News, the exact point that Sweet chided last.

“I think the point she’s trying to say there is that Fox pushes storylines that are sometimes nonsense. Doocy does that in the briefing room,” Stelter said.

“I think Jen Psaki’s like — remember in senior year, spring of your senior year, you’re about to graduate and you’re just tired of all this? I think we’re seeing that from Jen Psaki,” Stelter went on to say. “She’s about to leave the White house. She’s going to go to a job likely at MSNBC, so she’s kind of relaxing and maybe sharing how she really feels.”

“But, to be fair, she didn’t really criticize [Doocy] directly,” Stelter excused. “She was really criticizing Fox News as an organization.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter interviews 8th-graders who are learning about detecting ‘misinformation’ — and viewer reaction is priceless

CNN’s Brian Stelter recently interviewed 8th-grade students and their teacher at P.S. 207 in Queens, New York, about their class on how to detect “misinformation” online. In a video published Sunday, Stelter — CNN’s chief media correspondent — spoke to teacher Barbara King, who said she began teaching media literacy 10 years ago and that it’s “a skill my students really need; there’s too much misinformation around us in the world.” The clip shows King telling her students about satire, false context, imposter content, manipulated content, and fabricated content.

Stelter also interviewed students outside classroom time about how they’ve been using what they’ve learned. One student said his family believed COVID-19 was a “hoax” when the pandemic was breaking but that he argued back that it was real. With that, Stelter emphasized the tendency of some who want to believe untruths — and then added that instead “you gotta face reality head-on.”

As readers of TheBlaze know, Stelter and CNN repeatedly have been called out for pushing misinformation and bias. The latest example appears to be Stelter running “cover” for NPR’s report — refuted as fake news — claiming Chief Justice John Roberts “in some form” asked justices to wear masks because Justice Sonia Sotomayor has diabetes and that Justice Neil Gorsuch refused, Fox News reported. All that to say, a number of commenters under CNN’s YouTube video of Stelter’s report about the “misinformation” class mocked the notion of him interviewing teenagers about the subject:

  • “The irony of Brian Stelter talking about how to spot fake news is pretty incredible,” one commenter wrote.
  • “Like, ‘Kids, CNN is full of lies, so watch them as an example on how journalism shouldn’t be,'” another commenter quipped.
  • “LMAO! Tell me this is a joke!” another commenter wrote. “If Stelter wants to teach kids how to spot misinformation, he should give them a picture of himself.”
  • “They should just watch CNN,” another commenter said. “They’ll be experts in spotting it within a half hour.”
  • “How to spot misinformation, eh?” another commenter noted. “They should show a CNN article of the Covington kid then their undisclosed amount they had to pay him for defamation.”
  • “Brian Stelter story? On misinformation?!” another commenter remarked. “That’s rich.”

Don’t forget that CNN just last week announced that it’s putting together a news team “dedicated to covering misinformation.” The announcement also was met with derision.

‘You’re Not a Journalist Brian, You’re an Activist!” – WOW! – Trump Senior Legal Advisor Destroys CNN’s Brian Stelter after Nasty Insult (VIDEO)


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published June 14, 2020 at 3:51pm

Brilliant and talented Senior Legal Advisor to the Trump Campaign, Jenna Ellis, joined CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday Morning on Reliable Sources.

Poor Brian was completely outmatched with the brilliant and talented Trump associate.

During their discussion Stelter complained about the term “fake news” and then got personal when he told Ellis that she would regret using “slurs” when her kids and grandkids see this one day.
What a jerk!

That’s when Jenna fired back: “Oh, now you’re going for the personal attacks. That’s when you know you’ve lost the debate… C’mon, that’s really low, Brian. You’re not trying to do your job. You’re not a journalist, Brian, you’re an activist!”

Ouch!
Jenna Ellis was exceptional.

CNN Chyron: Mail Bomb Recipients Are ‘Trump’s Targets’


Reported by Justin Caruso |

A CNN chyron aired Thursday said Democrats who received mail bombs this week are “Trump’s targets” — hours after an anchor insisted “no one’s blaming the president.”

“Manhunt For Serial Bomber Going After Trump’s Targets” read the CNN chyron at about 1:13 PM. This came after another chyron that also referred to those targeted as “Trump Targets.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ended the segment by saying, “The one common thread between all of these bombs–all of those who are being targeted are President Trump’s frequent punching bags.”

This segment came mere hours after CNN’s John King opened up a panel discussion by stating: “No one’s blaming the president. Is anyone blaming the president?”

And just one hour before this segment, the network’s chyron suggested that Trump bears “responsibility” for “inciting” the perpetrator to send these packages — but alleges the president is not owning up to it.

Although CNN personalities have repeatedly said that they are not blaming Trump or his supporters for the mail bombs, they have emphasized several times that those targeted by the bombs were frequently criticized by Trump and by right-wing media.

Brian Stelter said Wednesday that the targets of the bombs “have all been criticized mercilessly by right-wing outlets.”

CNN analyst Josh Campbell also insisted Wednesday that Trump’s rhetoric may still be to blame for the mail bombs, even if the perpetrator is mentally ill.

“If the package bomber turns out to be someone with mental health issues, that doesn’t mean Pres. Trump is off the hook. If it turns out the bomber was motivated to kill perceived enemies based on recent heated political attacks by officials, those spewing hate share the blame,” he said.
