CNN Host Gets Verbal BEATDOWN on His Show

I filed this under “You MUST See it to Believe It”, and it involves an interview with a sanctimonious CNN host.

Michael Wolff who wrote the Trump book exposé (that ironically exposed Michael Wolff) actually gave Brian Stelter some amazing advice.

Justin Baragona tweeted part of the interview from “Reliable Sources”, the show hosted by CNN’s Brian Stelter {I know, right!}:

“You become part of, one of the parts of the problem of the media. You know, you come on here, and you have a monopoly on truth – you know, you know exactly how things are supposed to be done. And you know, you are why one of the reasons people can’t stand the media, I’m sorry.” said Wolff.

To which Stelter laughed, saying “You’re cracking me up.”

“It’s your fault,” Wolff shot back, to which Stelter asked what he could do better.

“You know, don’t talk so much, listen more. You know, people have genuine problems with the media, the media doesn’t get the story right. The media exists in its own bubble,” Wolff replied. “Also, you’re incredibly repetitive. It’s week after week,” Wolff continued. “I mean, you’re the flip side of Donald Trump. You know, fake news and you say virtuous news.”

When Stelter then asked him why he’s been on CNN several times this week, Wolff hung his head and replied: “You know, I’m a book salesman.”

Talk about truth in advertising.

That was an unexpected exchange. But Wolff nailed it. Stelter is part of the problem. He’s nothing more than a failing host on a failing network. Week after week, he promotes the same anti-Trump, pro-Biden bologna. It’s just wash, rinse, repeat. And Stelter’s entire network is just more of the same. There’s not a single, independent-minded minion among them.

Judging by the number of settlements CNN pays out, truth is nothing once you play for their team. And people see it, clear as day.

Just take a look at Stelter’s numbers.

Stelter’s low-rated Sunday show “Reliable Sources” averaged only 786,000 viewers in June for its worst turnout during any month of 2021. The program has declined each month since President Biden took office and has now failed to crack the one-million viewer benchmark for three consecutive months.

Stelter’s show finished June down a staggering 56 percent from its January totals when the liberal network saw a brief spike in viewership during the final days of Trump’s presidency.

“Reliable Sources” also struggled in the key news demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging only 137,000 viewers in the category coveted by advertisers. It was the worst month of the year for Stelter’s show in the critical category as “Reliable Sources” shed 65 percent of its January audience.

CNN’s struggling media program wrapped up the second quarter of 2021 down 39 percent among total viewers and down 48 percent in the key demo compared to the first quarter of the year. “Reliable Sources” finished the dismal quarter with an average of 846,000 viewers to snap its five-quarter streak of cracking the one-million plateau.

The list of programs that outdrew “Reliable Sources” during the quarter includes everything from MeTV’s old episodes of “The Andy Griffith Show” to Food Network’s “Girl Meets Farm.”

I’m not gonna lie. I’d much rather watch Mayberry than anything politics has to offer these days. Especially with the “big guy” in the big chair. Of course, if we had it Stelter’s way, Michael Avenatti would be president right now.
