CNN's Stelter Calls The Kettle Black In Anti Fox News Book
The MSM is all about spinning the news. They go out of their way to manipulate stories so that they can condemn the president. CNN and MSNBC are unwatchable with their over the top liberal bias. But according to CNN's Brian Stelter, it's not the MSM that is in the wrong, it's Fox News.
During a Book Review podcast, Stelter discussed his new book, "Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth. " A book he likely was encouraged to write as it attacks CNN's biggest competitor. Stelter dives into his book and attacks Brett Baier and Chris Wallace claiming they are propaganda peddlers...
"But I’ll say this, Pamela, I feel like five years ago versus today, there’s a lot, a lot more criticism of people like Chris Wallace and Bret Baier within the journalism community, within the television news world. This tight-knit, sometimes incestuous world where people hug each other in the front and stab each other in the back, right?
There’s a lot more resentment and even disgust with the fact there are these news anchors at Fox who, in the eyes of their friends, are complicit. I know that’s a tough word but it’s true. There’s a sense of complicity, that if you’re working in the same channel as these propagandists then you are a part of the problem. And like I said, if anybody is able to be the exception to that rule it is Chris Wallace. But it is still very much a topic of conversation in the Trump years."
He would attack anchors that are far more unbiased than himself.
Stelter later went after the head of Fox News claiming the content promotes violence and conspiracy theories.
"But Lachlan is now running Fox Corporation and he does have more of a conservative bent, he’s friendly with Tucker Carlson, for example. And he seems quite content with what’s airing on Fox News, even when the content is trying to justify violence or promote conspiracy theories or alleged crazy voter fraud. He’s OK with that."
This book seems pointless. You can get that same stale opinion from CNN any night of the week from almost any host. I bet he also bashes Trump in his book too... Even the title is misleading, it would be far more truthful if he just called it what it is, Stale Liberal Propaganda.
