Stelter’s smugness and self-importance radiate through his condescending words.
CNN host Brian Stelter lost his damn mind on Sunday’s Reliable Sources because some people in the media had the nerve to report the news not related to the Wuhan coronavirus.
They had the audacity to address the issue that the FBI might have set up former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Stelter considered it an “obsession” because nothing can ever top the pandemic!
Stelter delivered his speech atop his soapbox:
Here’s the transcript:
“It’s like New Orleans floods every day. It’s like the planes go into the towers every day. And to look away or act like it’s now normal or acceptable is a disgrace to the victims. It’s so disappointing to look at what we’re seeing from right-wing media these days, where there’s such an obsession with the deep state and these revelations about the Russia probe and the decision about Michael Flynn. They’re treating the Michael Flynn story like it’s a bigger deal than the deaths of 2,000 Americans a day.
“We were seeing this on Fox and Friends and other shows. When the president called into Fox and Friends the other morning, Friday morning right before the unemployment rate numbers came out, he talked about the Flynn case for 20 minutes before he was asked about the pandemic. In what right mind is any scandal, any political scandal, any Department of Justice story, more important to ask the President about than the pandemic that’s raging?
“Look, ultimately it’s about news judgment, it’s about lack of judgment, but I find it befuddling that some people are acting like this death toll is just normal, and accepted, and common, and just another day now. Imagine if 1,000 to 2,000 Americans were dying a day from terror attacks? Imagine the president’s response?”
This is precious coming from someone who had his own obsession with the probe into possible collusion between then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Weird how people like Stelter dropped the issue once no one could find any collusion and recent reports indicate that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff did not even have a whiff of possible evidence despite him bragging about it.
The Washington Free Beacon released a video of Stelter’s obsession with the Russia probe.

The lack of self-awareness within people like Stelter will always shock me. I just do not get the lack of humility. I do not get the self-importance or the need to feel like they have lecture other people.DONATE
