No one does more to normalize white supremacists than outlets like CNN. And the reasons for it are transparently partisan.
Although it draws attention for being an anti-Trump news outlet, the network is working to deflect attention away from its severe audience flight.
In a recent interview, Stelter reveals that for someone who is steeped in cable news culture, he is quite ignorant about its place and relevance in the media landscape.
For the past two years, the media engaged in a mass act of self-deception and partisan groupthink. Nothing like it has ever happened in American history.
Conveniently, criticism of the liberals’ leading funder is beyond the pale, but featuring an intellectual who pals around with a guy who calls Jews termites is okay.
Brian Stelter was outraged to learn in 2016 that a woman he dated who worked at Fox News was actually an informant for the network.
Despite political behavior that would offend the professionalism of any self-respecting journalist, Brian Stelter treats Justin Simmons as a righteously neutral whistleblower about Sinclair.
Everyone has a bias. There’s nothing wrong with pointing it out. Sinclair’s real sin, though, is that it was a bit ham-fisted about the wrong kind.
In the wake of a deadly mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, CNN claimed Sen. Ted Cruz was too afraid to come on the air.
Our day-to-day drama is often brought on by Trump’s words. But much of it is exacerbated by his adversaries, who are ridiculous in their own special ways.
‘Fire And Fury’ has given the media a convenient excuse to repeat unverified stories about the Trump administration. It sets a bad precedent.
If there’s a major news story that journalists have botched more over the past 70 years than the Russia ‘collusion’ story, I’d love to hear about it.
CNN contributor David Frum said Sunday that factual errors in reporting stories are precisely why people should trust the news media.
Ted Cruz said CNN may have broken the law after they threatened to publicly expose the person who created a GIF of Donald Trump beating up CNN.
Taking responsibility for just one of the many flawed stories CNN has been pushing is nowhere near sufficient a response to the institutional problems plaguing the media outlet.
Brian Stelter didn’t intend to suggest video games caused the shooting, but that’s how it came across to some gamers, who have seen their pastime linked time and again to violent behavior.
By giving Donald Trump’s taunts so much coverage, the media have given other politicians shut out of valuable air time little reason to avoid insults.
