‘Reliable Source’ Brian Stelter Let Hogg Lie for the Darndest Reason

1

CNN’s ‘Reliable Source’ Brian Stelter said on Headline News’ S.E. Cupp’s Unfiltered that he knew David Hogg, student faux reporter, lied and he let him.

“There were a few times I wanted to jump in and say, ‘Let’s correct that fact.’ And at one of the times I did and other times I did not. There’s always that balance, how many times you’re going to interrupt,” Stelter said.

He did correct one Hogg lie or misstatement about Dana Loesch and he seemed proud of that.

What a great excuse for letting the leftist kid lie. How polite! What a role model you are Brian.

Stelter’s show — ironically — is called ‘Reliable Sources’. That’s almost too ironic to bear.

The left-wing media has allowed these young people to say almost anything with no pushback and by doing so, they are teaching them it is fine to lie before the world.

Journalism Is Activism

The sorry state of the media is not going to get better any time soon it seems.

One of the Marjory Stoneman students,  Rebecca Schneid, the co-editor of the high school newspaper, learned from all this that “journalism is activism”.

Of course, it isn’t, but it is what she learned. She probably also learned to let liars she agrees with demagogue the issues so as to not be rude by interrupting.

Stelter didn’t correct her either — he obviously agrees.

  1. When CNN began their Reliable Sources they Did make a half-hearted attempt to shine a light on improper journalistic tactics. It wasn’t very long before it turned into “justification” for anything and everything a journalist would do, no matter the consequences.

    How many remember during the Iraq War that CNN was complicit in “murder”. Sadam Hussein wanted the death of an important person, maybe a relative – I don’t recall. But that individual went to Jordan to escape Sadam. Sadam came out and said he would Not have him killed if he would return. He Did return and Was killed. It came out that CNN was fully aware of Sadam’s motives but didn’t want to reveal it because they would lose “access”. I could never understand how it was that CNN was never charged with conspiracy to commit murder since they had “prior knowledge”. Obviously journalists can get by with murder and suffer No consequences because of their “First Amendmnt” “privilege”.
