CNN followed through on its threats to dismiss some fervently biased personalities. Brian Stelter’s “brand” was too toxically anti-Trump? We review some scraps between Stelter and NewsBusters and laugh at the lefties who are horrified, that Stelter’s dismissal is “a win for all the wrong people.”
For conservatives, Stelter represented a partisan and liberal viewpoint that journalism must be dedicated to the urgent task of ruining Trump as aggressively as possible, and then suggested that any Trump voters who decried this dramatic tilt in the media were part of a “hate movement” against journalism.
Stelter was naive or shameless enough to claim journalists were “not anti-Trump,” but “pro-truth.” When Kellyanne Conway referred to his side of the aisle, Stelter acted offended: “I don’t have a side of the aisle.” That’s preposterous.
