Susan Ferrechio, from the Washington Examiner, bitch-slapped Brian Stelter and CNN for ignoring the Hunter Biden bombshell story that includes his father, the former vice president and Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday and for having a double standard when it comes to reporting about Donald Trump, and she pointed out they have a lack of journalistic ethics.
“The bottom line is this deserves scrutiny by all media outlets, and if they pick and choose this and decide it’s not worth their time, I think that’s showing real bias,” Ferrechio said of the Biden email story we reported on that the New York Post broke last week and was censored by Facebook and Twitter. The fourth largest newspaper in the country, 219 years old, and they were censored for “misleading” information.
Stelter and Ferrechio were on a panel that was being hosted by Amol Rajan on the BBC. They were there to talk about the implications and censorship of the exploding story about Hunter Biden using the influence of his father’s office as vice president to get foreign business deals. In other words, China, Ukraine, Iraq and others would allegedly get favorable treatment from the Obama administration if they gave Hunter a lucrative deal that he would use to fun the Biden crime family.
Whereas Stelter claimed Ferrechio’s concerns about media bias by not covering the story were simply “grievance politics that comes from the right,” Ferrechio quickly fired back.
“This is not last year’s news,” she said. “It’s whether or not his son was coordinating to get him to talk to these Ukrainian oligarchs, and he was benefiting from it. This is really dirty.”
Stelter got slapped down again when he claimed that “newsrooms in America are very careful about this stuff” and that they were all still evaluating the story’s claims through “slow, cautious vetting.” Yeah, and I’m Mary, Queen of Scots. #EyeRoll
This clown doesn’t even know when he sets himself up.about:blankTwitter URLPaste a link to the content you want to display on your site.EmbedLearn more about embeds(opens in a new tab)Sorry, this content could not be embedded.Try again Convert to link
“I think the bottom line is we don’t know what is real and what is fake in these emails if there is anything real in them,” Stelter said, which was a dumb thing to say, because neither Stelter nor his network, CNN, have a good reputation in that area.
“Yeah, but that didn’t stop anyone from reporting the Mueller and the dossier,” Ferrechio shot back at Stelter.
As Stelter got very demeaning to her by saying, “I understand that you have a lot of resentment about that” and “I agree with you should not be ignored,” Ferrechio was quick to call him out on his hypocrisy.
“Now we have ethics,” she replied sarcastically.
“Don’t you dare,” Stelter replied, getting all heated up, putting himself on defense. “Don’t you dare act like newsrooms didn’t have ethics in 2017 and 2018.”
“You can ‘don’t dare’ me all you want, Brian,” Ferrechio said. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years, so say whatever you want. It’s my view, and I have a right to say it.”
Ferrechio also said that she didn’t ignore the Russian hoax stories when they came up either.
“I didn’t discard the Mueller stuff. I was much more skeptical because I knew the sourcing, and I knew where it came from on Capitol Hill, where I have stood in the building for the past few decades,” she said. “I had a real reason to doubt that stuff, and I constantly did, and it turned out a lot of it was a bunch of bunk.”
Ferrechio rightfully said that the same principle the media applied to Mueller should apply to the Biden family story.
“I think everybody deserves to look at the Mueller stuff, and everyone should look at this and give Biden the scrutiny,” she said, adding, “He’s not running for president of the Glee Club; he’s running for president of the United States, and this is serious.”
Stelter and his network, CNN, lied to their audiences every day for over two years about Russian collusion. They put on guests who knew nothing and spoke with pure speculation, and Stelter and others there acted like it was gospel truth. Brian Stelter is not a journalist, he is a left-wing activist who calls himself a journalist. Neither Stelter nor CNN has ever apologized for the lies they pushed against Trump, and every time they had to do a retraction it was 100% over a negative story about Trump. They never had to retract anything good they said about the president, pretty much because they have never said anything good about him.
Stelter last month refused to
In late September, Stelter refused to admit that there wasn’t any evidence of collusion found between Russia and President Trump in the Mueller investigation and completely ignored the fact that the Steele dossier was a fraud. All the evidence, all the books written about it, including Mueller’s report that there was no evidence of collusion, and Humpty Dumpty still believes it happened.
By now you’ve no doubt seen references to a Trump-bashing article by @JeffreyGoldberg in The Atlantic. He claims that well-placed “sources” of his inside the government confirm that President Trump said that “Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers'”. Goldberg wrote nearly 1700 words of something I think is indicative of how desperate the Left is. It seems that they’re determined to distract us from the continuous faux pas of various members from Biden to Pelosi on down.
In on particularly inflammatory paragraph, Goldberg wrote [editor’s note-strong language…] :
When McCain died, in August 2018, Trump told his senior staff, according to three sources with direct knowledge of this event, “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral,” and he became furious, according to witnesses, when he saw flags lowered to half-staff. “What the f**k are we doing that for? Guy was a f**king loser,” the president told aides.
The ‘”sources” claimed that Trump was angry and frustrated at having to accommodate and honor the late John McCain (R-AZ) following his death from brain cancer two years ago.
The president strongly denied the report, but expressed his feelings in a Twitter thread:
Interestingly, McCain’s son-in-law, Ben Domenech, called for Goldberg to reveal the sources and stood up for the president. On Twitter, he wrote, “I’m confident I have better sources within this White House than @JeffreyGoldberg, and I expect that upon investigation his anonymously sourced story will live up to the quality we can expect from The Atlantic under his leadership.”
After returning from a campaign stop in Latrobe, Pennsylvania Trump addressed the controversy surrounding the article at Joint Base Andrews. Noting that the alleged sources “made it up,” he went on to say that “probably it’s a couple of people that have been failures in my administration that I got rid of and I couldn’t get rid of them fast enough.”
The president also affirmed his position that even though he disagreed with McCain, he still respected him:
CNN WANTS TO HEAR IT FROM THE SOURCES TOO?
Oddly enough, in a roundabout way, the president also got an “assist” from a frequent critic, CNN’s ‘media’ analyst, Brian Stelter.
In a segment with fellow network host Don Lemon following the publication of the story, Stelter called on the sources to publicly identify themselves. After all, election day is closing on us quickly, and we should hear it from the horse’s mouth, don’t you agree? Both men falsely claim that Trump regularly denies true stories, so why not?
“That’s the thing about this — normally the denials from the president and his aides would carry some weight, but for three and a half years the White House has squandered its credibility to the point where its words are essentially worthless, and the denials mean very little. But it is also incumbent on the sources, on the people that are talking to Goldberg, on the people that are talking to other outlets — the president’s denying it explicitly, so it’s put up or shut up time.”
OTHER JOURNALISTS AGREE
Other Washington journalists expressed their sincere doubts about the credibility of Goldberg’s story.
What made my day was listening to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany rake the press corps over the coals:
It was no secret that McCain was an outspoken critic of Trump’s candidacy. He once referred to the future president’s supporters as “crazies.” And let’s not forget that McCain played a role in advancing the legitimacy of the so-called “Steele dossier.” He had it delivered to Obama’s FBI. The dossier — which was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign — was used by the bureau to fraudulently obtain surveillance warrants on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
As far as the allegations about Trump’s supposed dislike for the military, I couldn’t disagree more. I admit I had my reservations about voting for him. However, when it came down to the wire, I knew there was NO WAY I would ever support Crooked Hillary. Now-President Donald Trump has since fully won my support, and after seeing how hard the Left has tried to unseat him, I have no doubt I will cast my ballot for his reelection. He’s the only thing left standing between us and complete domination by a communist One World Order.
We knew it would happen one day and that day has arrived. The Wokeness pathogen has now spread to toys.
Hasbro, the makers of the famous Mr. Potato Head, has gleefully announced that the long-beloved toy has gotten a makeover, and no longer has a fixed gender. I remember playing with Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head as a kid and I do not remember any anatomical parts. “Mommy, what’s this thing?”
Mr. Potato Head, a childhood staple since 1952, has been around for nearly seven decades. I am patiently awaiting the release of Septuagenarian Potato Head.
Full disclosure: I always thought Mr. Potato Head was modeled after CNN‘s Brian Stelter but now I realize he’s not old enough.
On Thursday, a report from the Associated Press said that Hasbro has renamed Mr. Potato Head to honor his gender neutrality and will call him simply “Potato Head,” and will be rolled out to the confused children everywhere starting this year.
Bloomberg reports that the new “Potato Heads,” will be more “sustainably made,” alluding to a company presentation for investors.
According to the report, the outlet also said that starting the fall, Hasbro will begin selling Potato Head family kits.
A spokesperson for the company said that the kits will come with two “non-gendered adult potatoes, one baby potato, and 42 accessories.” I can only imagine what the accessories will look like.
“That will let kids decide the parents’ gender, rather than being told they are ‘Mr.’ and ‘Mrs,'” Bloomberg reported, making a note that the company said that “the traditional Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head dolls will still ‘live on as part of the brand.'” They did not without elaborate and I do not blame them.
This guy has some good questions.
Reactions on social media were mixed, with most people leaning toward faulting the company over the move.
“Imagine thinking in the middle of a global pandemic: ‘What’s really important is dropping the ‘Mr’ from Mr Potato Head & making him gender-neutral in case we upset a few wokies.'”
Congressional candidate Catalina Lauf pointed out the ridiculousness of it all.
“Wow… Hasbro got rid of Mrs. Potato Head just like that?
Between this and destroying women’s sports — the left culture and policy stance has actually created the ultimate war on women”
Twitter user louise leslie, who identifies as a nonbinary, didn’t think much of the company putting a refreshed spin on the toy.
“As a non binary I’m more pissed off with the poor treatment of workers than the pronouns of a toy. Monopolies are attempting to fabricate a culture war to deflect these deep faults in capitalism.”
Nobody said crazy people do not have opinions.
Another user with an Esquire suffix gave an opinion.
“This is marketing stupidity. You want to include a gender neutral version, fine. Combine the Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head gear into one box and call it ‘Potato Head.’ To drop ‘Mr.’ and/or ‘Mrs.’ potato head will only lead to decreased sales.”
jadedgamer responded to what I thought was humorous even if the tweeter did not when he tweeted, “And Mrs. Potato Head? What of her? Did Hasbro just brutally cancel in a most sexist manner this beloved female gendered character?”
“You do understand that by making the potato head gender neutral kids can make the figure make or female if they want right. Like you do understand this since it seems very clear….”
But everyone knows that Mrs. Potato Head was arrested by federal agents for her role in the Capitol insurrection on January 6.
I’m wondering if I’m the only one who realizes that both Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head are the exact same potato head and only the accessories that you plug into them make them different. I mean it’s not like they had any discernible anatomy from the get-go.
A lot of people were actually upset about this, so Hasbro felt the need to put out a tweet to let all the potato heads on Twitter know Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head aren’t going anywhere. You can’t make this stuff up.
“Hold that Tot – your main spud, MR. POTATO HEAD isn’t going anywhere! While it was announced today that the POTATO HEAD brand name & logo are dropping the ‘MR.’ I yam proud to confirm that MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD aren’t going anywhere and will remain MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD”
Politifact editor in chief, Angie Drobnic Holan appeared with Brian Stelter on CNN’s “Unreliable Sources.” During the show, she made the incredible claim that Andrew Cuomo sending Covid-19 patients to nursing homes where the most vulnerable live did not make a difference in the number of deaths and instead claimed that Covid-19 was brought in by employees.
Have you ever heard such a crock of crap?
Politifact makes their living by covering up for Democrats when they are guilty and slandering conservatives when they are innocent knows no shame.
Should we also believe that the bombs the Japanese dropped on Pearl Harbor did not make a significant increase in the number of deaths?
Maybe all the servicemen and women had lighters that all exploded at once, causing ships to sink and for people to die.
“I think the situation in New York is really complicated… We don’t see hard evidence that [his order] made a significant difference in COVID deaths.”
Look at this logically. The Democrat6s wh2o opted to send the sick patients to nursing homes had a high death rate but states that refused to allow Covid positive patients into nursing homes saw much fewer illnesses and death.
Do you really believe that is an insignificant fact or do you see a definite connection between policies and death? If you do I have a bridge I can let you have cheap.
Governor Cuomo is famous for sending thousands of sick COVID patients back to nursing homes where the dangerous diseases spread like wildfire. New York state and New Jersey still have the worst COVID death ratios in the world.
Cuomo is currently under investigation by the DOJ. The FBI and US Attorney were in Brooklyn just last week investigating Cuomo’s handling of the New York nursing home crisis.
NBC political director and MSNBC host Chuck Todd was ripped down by many leftists on social media for asking if then President-elect Joe Biden would be able to keep his promise on the coronavirus pandemic. The answer is of course not.
Recently on “Meet the Press” Todd mentioned polls results that revealed that many Americans believe the country is very divided and will stay that way for many years to come. That’s what happens when the socialists assume power and try to force people to do things that go against human nature.
“Let’s be realistic, Biden’s first and most crucial task is to vaccinate America, to fulfill that promise of 100 million vaccinations in his first 100 days,” Todd said. That’s not going to happen and useful idiots like Chuck Todd will blame the Trump administration for Biden’s failures. The Woke Supremacists are angry because they don’t want it exposed that Joe Biden is going to be an unmitigated disaster of a president.
“The ultimate success or failure of his presidency may hinge simply on that one promise that he made and it might be his only way to begin immediately cauterizing America’s social, economic, and political wounds,” he continued. Joe Biden created many of America’s social, economic, and political wounds. He launched his 2020 campaign on the Charlottesville lie. What makes anyone think he’s going to try to unify the country? For Woke Supremacists, you unify a country by forcing people to agree with you or silence them. They offer no alternative.
“Let’s put it this way if Biden wants to succeed he has to fulfill that first vaccination promise,” he concluded. “If Biden doesn’t get it right, he will have failed on the job he was elected to do.”
The reaction was swift and ugly.
Many leftists spit fire-and-brimstone of fury on social media at Todd for the audacity of saying such a thing, and also at MSNBC for allowing Todd to remain employed by MSNBC, which really stands for More Silly Nonsense By Communists.
“For years I’ve been on this platform telling you about the lack of professionalism and lack of journalistic ethics in @chucktodd’s daily broadcasts. A lot of you saw it today. But it’s been happening for years and it is past time for @MSNBC to do something about it,” said novelist Don Winslow.
Think about that. The Left is complaining about Chuck Todd the leftist cheerleader having a lack of journalistic ethics. The campaign to begin eating their own has begun. It’s still hilarious though that the Left believes Todd has a lack of journalistic ethics for the complete opposite reasons that the benighted Deplorable’s believe that Todd has a lack of journalistic ethics.
I even said so.
“If you agree that Chuck Todd is already a failure before Joe Biden is sworn in, then raise your hand,” Grant Stern, a progressive activist tweeted.
“Chuck todd, before Biden is even sworn in… talking about his push for vaccines: ‘if Biden doesn’t get it right, he will have failed in the job he was elected to do’ i repeat: Biden is not even sworn in yet,” said liberal activist Oliver Willis.
“I’ve been trying to hold my tongue. But I’m done. F@chucktodd. That’s what I said. F. #ChuckTodd. Once more for the kids in the back: #F***CHUCKTODD!!!!” ranted leftist actor Matt Walton.
Liberals are so nuts about conformity to the Woke Supremacy that they actually went off on Todd back in August for having a Republican on the “Meet the Press” panel with a bunch of leftist journalists.
Chuck Todd is always in the running for Dumbest Anchor on Cable News, battling it out each month with Brian Stelter from CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” Stelter usually holds the title month after month but sometimes Chuck Todd eats his Wheaties and comes out punching for the title.
NBC host Chuck Todd, who is always in the running to overtake CNN’s Brian Stelter as the dumbest newsman in the news media, had it out with Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) over a number of Republican members of Congress who are planning to dispute the certification of Joe Biden winning the 2020 election due to questions of massive election fraud.
After being accused of trying to thwart the democratic process, Johnson hit back by telling sleepy eyes Todd that they are trying to protect it.
“We are not acting to thwart the democratic process, we are acting to protect it,” Johnson said to Todd.
“The fact of the matter is we have an unsustainable state of affairs in this country where we have tens of millions of people who do not view this election result as legitimate,” Johnson added.
The senator from Wisconsin added, “As long as somebody is going to be objecting to this and we’re going to take a vote, let’s propose a solution in terms of transparency, investigation, with a commission.”
Todd, like all mainstream news media activists, saw his job as trashing Johnson and continuing to spread the lie that there is no evidence of election fraud based on the courts dismissing multiple cases brought on by Republicans. What Todd and every other left-wing activist with a news program forgets to mention is that none of the cases were tossed by judges based on bad evidence. They were never allowed to even present their evidence before the judges threw out the cases. Don’t you think that’s a pretty important fact that Todd should have acknowledged?
“You made an allegation there was widespread fraud, you have failed to offer specific evidence of that widespread fraud, but you’re demanding an investigation on the grounds that there are allegations of widespread fraud. So essentially you’re the arsonist here. President Trump is the arsonist here,” Todd spit out at Johnson.
Here’s the most frustrating thing about all of this. There is massive amounts of evidence showing election fraud, but losers like Chuck Todd refused to air it. There were legislature hearings in all of the key battleground states where whistleblowers and witnesses filed over a thousand affidavits signed upon penalty of perjury who testified to reveal election fraud they witnessed first hand.
The hearings were all aired on YouTube, because cretins like Chuck Todd refused to air them. None of the mainstream news media outlets aired a single hearing, and I believe they stayed away from them so that they could continue to lie to their viewers about there being no evidence.
Here is just one example of an expert witness who testified as to the results of a 2020 voter data analysis he did for the Georgia election, where he discovered there were tens of thousands of fraudulent votes in numerous categories.
“Because you didn’t have the guts to tell the truth that this election was fair!” Todd continued.
Johnson fired back at the lamebrain pointing to him as being the arsonist because media types like Todd “dropped any pretense of being unbiased and actually chose sides during the election.”
Todd and others in the Fake News media are acting like the Republicans contesting the election results is an unprecedented affair.
Let me remind them that the last three times a Republican won a presidential election the Democrats in the House brought objections to the Electoral votes the Republican won.
Lest they forget that the House Democrats contested both elections of former President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004 and President Trump’s win in 2016.
Senator Josh Hawley (R- MO) announced last week that he will object to Electoral College certification, and that brought a large amount of condemnation from Democrats who praised their own party’s objections to GOP victories in 2000, 2004 and 2016. Democrats always accuse Republicans of doing things that they actually did.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the Republican’s objections to the 2020 election “conspiracy and fantasy.” I’d love to know how much Schumer is involved in the attempts to steal the Georgia senate runoff elections being held today.
Schumer said, “The effort by the sitting president of the United States to overturn the results is patently undemocratic. The effort by others to amplify and burnish his ludicrous claims of fraud is equally revolting.”
So, then what would he call when the Democrats did it three times? The clowns literally claimed Donald Trump was a Russian asset after his 2016 victory.
“This is America. We have elections. We have results. We make arguments based on the fact and reason—not conspiracy and fantasy,” he added. He said this even though he know that Democrats have been challenging the electoral vote for every Republican victory for decades.
In 2005, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), along with Representative Stephanie Tubbs (D-OH), objected to Bush’s 2004 electoral votes in Ohio.
Democrats championed Boxer’s actions at the time, including Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). Yet last week, Durbin described Republican objections as “the political equivalent of barking at the moon.” Speaking of barking at the moon, Durbin is a known liar who throws out lies to push conspiracy theories.
The fact of the matter is the Constitution provides lots of remedies for situations we are in right now. Donald Trump won the 2020 election by a landslide, and the Democrats stole it from him. You have to be dumb as a box of hair or a CNN viewer to not understand that after the evidence has been presented from all battleground states. It’s overwhelming, despite the fact that the Democrats and their boot-licking sycophants in the mainstream news media ignore or lie about it. The Republicans have every right to object.
People who lie eventually slip up when things start to go outside their plans.
Marxists who seek to control the medical, educational, and media industries, need the population as a whole to use all of the aforementioned services in their pursuit of creating dependence and loyalty to the state.
So when you look at CNN, a lying Marxist promoting propaganda information outlet, they react to anything which pulls the population away from the approved messaging.
For example, why should CNN care what social media platforms Trump supporters use?
In a segment this week discussing how the political Right is handling the results of the 2020 presidential election, CNN reporter Pamela Brown suggested that it was a “threat to democracy” that people were turning away from dominant social media platforms like Facebook and signing up to be on more pro-free speech platforms and sites.
Crying Brian Stelter who bemoaned smaller conservative news channels garnering more viewership in recent weeks as Trump world has clashed with Fox News over some of the network’s recent coverage weighed in.
“I think, big picture, Pamela, here is the concerning trend line here. People are going more and more into their own echo chambers, more into their own bubbles, especially Trump voters,”
“There’s this new social media app, called Parler, getting a lot of attention. Because conservatives are leaving, saying they’re leaving Twitter and Facebook, going off to Parler because they believe Parler is a safer space for them.”
“What we’re seeing is even more of a bunker mentality in right-wing media,” Stelter continued. “Ultimately, that’s not good for the country.”
“No, it is not good,” Brown responded. “It is a threat to democracy that these people are in echo chambers and they’re getting fed a diet of lies essentially.”
So there you have it folks.
CNN wanted their viewers to believe they are concerned about democracy so much that it is dangerous for anyone to use a different social media platform like Parler, Spreely, or MagaBook.Com, as these users will not be exposed to the truth, like CNN, is broadcasting.
No, they are alarmed that millions of Americans will not longer be exposed to the collective’s messaging making it more difficult to control the masses.
Opinion| Any honest pundit, politician, citizen journalist, or person with a TV or the internet, will tell you that there is something wrong with Joe Biden. We may disagree with what we think it is exactly that is wrong with Joe. However, I think we can all agree he has some serious issues.
Some will say Biden is an ‘old white male’ and part of the ‘white supremacist’ power structure and standing in the way of progress. This set of people may also point to Biden’s infamous ‘Biden Crime Bill’ which some have pointed to as the reason our federal prisons are so full of minorities.
Others will state the obvious, Joe is a compulsive liar. Everything that comes out of his mouth seems to be either untrue, or plagiarized from someone else. This is not a recent phenomenon either, Biden has been called out for this by the MSM … back in the day, where they still had a shred of journalists integrity:
A few moments later … Biden caught in Law School plagiarism cheating scandal, which also exposed the lie that Biden graduated in the top 1/2 of his class:
Others of us point out the more obvious. We do not think that Biden is all there, mentally.
I had a Grandmother who had dementia. I hate to say it, but the behavior that she exhibited was very similar to what I see in Joe Biden. Obviously Joe is not at the end of his cognitive decline, keep in mind I am not a doctor, but based off my experience with my Grandmother, I think Joe has been degrading for a number of years now.
All one has to do it look at that clip above of Biden lying through his teeth, while bragging about things he never accomplished in Law School, and then compare it to him speaking now to realize that he is not functioning at the same level:
Now that we have established a few of the reasons why, if I were on team Biden, the last thing on God’s green earth I would want would be to put Biden on stage with Donald Trump for a 60 or 90 minute debate. It would be like feeding a mouse to a lion.
In fact, some of the people on ‘team Biden,’ you may know them as ‘the media’ have begun to place it in the public consciousness that Biden may not be doing debates this year. Obviously if this does end up being the case, the public can not know this was Biden’s people’s idea, it would show them just how weak Biden’s own team knows him to be.
Enter, Brian Stelter. Since I have nothing nice to say about Brian, I’ll leave it to you to draw you own conclusions about the self appointed hall monitor of the internet and social media.
Brian’s job is to lie. It’s what he does. He creates false narratives. The most recent of which, Fox News explains, is that it is people like us, the ‘right wing media’ who do not want Biden to debate Trump, when this is demonstrably false. If it were up to me, Biden and Trump should be locked in a room together for the next 90 days until the election, with a livestream the entire time available online.
Trump would eat Biden’s DHA and Omega 3s,6s and 9s. Fox News explains:
‘ CNN media pundit Brian Stelter raised eyebrows On Monday night after he said that “mostly right-wing media” is behind the growing push for Joe Biden not to debate President Trump — despite high-profile calls from The New York Times and even CNN personalities for the former vice president to skip the events.
Earlier in the day, the Times sparked mockery across social media for an op-ed arguing that presidential debates should be “scrapped,” with critics suggesting that it’s the latest effort by the media to prevent Biden from debating Trump. Donald Trump Jr. even chimed in, tweeting, “OMG they’re really going for it. There’s absolutely nothing the left will not do to protect Joe Biden and cover-up for all of his obvious flaws,” to accompany a link to the op-ed.
Townhall.com political editor and Fox News contributor Guy Benson quipped about the puzzling media trend, writing, “This ‘Biden shouldn’t debate’ boomlet is just a media tempest, right? Right?”
Stelter, once dubbed the media’s “hall monitor,” appeared to reject the premise of Benson’s comment.
“It is mostly a right-wing media tempest, fueled by hour after hour of Fox commentary (not reporting), far removed from campaign reality …,” the CNN pundit told Benson.’
It is mostly a right-wing media tempest, fueled by hour after hour of Fox commentary (not reporting), far removed from campaign reality… https://t.co/nQd4b312vX
Knowing he was busted, Brian decided to try another angle: “I’m well aware. but it’s a mistake to spend lots of precious time yakking about what leftie columnists are suggesting in this case. obviously biden will debate. why imply otherwise to viewers, hour after hour?”
Benson remained civil, however others on Twitter were not so gentile with Stelter as he rested on the ropes, bleeding and barely conscious”
“This is a brazen lie that’s easily traceable. Brian Stelter’s head doesn’t not exist in reality,” Stephen Miller responded.
“When I think about my most Reliable Sources as a reporter, I definitely think about the sources who are shameless partisans who are utterly unwilling to admit when they’re wrong and are brazen & embarrassing as they double down when proven to be laughably & demonstrably off base,” Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner tweeted.

David Martosko piled on: ‘Featured in The New York Times, Newsweek and… your network, CNN. We can all spot the messaging coordination. There’s nothing unusual about this, but denying it just makes you look complicit.’

I think it is safe to say that Brian got his ass handed to him. Despite the demonstrably misleading, at the very least, claim, CNN’s media ‘newsletter’ ran with Steltzer’s gaslight and blamed those evil right wingers for the idea. Laughable man, HA! to quote ‘The Jesus’ from The Big Lebowski.
In fairness to Stelter and Darcy, unclear if they're intentionally lying here. Could simply be that like everyone else they never tune into CNN. pic.twitter.com/HsqqGIadEg
Fox concluded by quoting Biden’s deputy manager and communications director Kate Bedingfield: ‘“America’s Newsroom” on Monday that her candidate is “very much looking forward to debating Donald Trump.”‘
However, some of us still question whether Biden will be the nominee at all. That’s cray cray you may say, and I know it sounds out there, but I can not get the words of the DNC communication director out of my head:
Shouldn’t the Democrats stand by their Hashtag #believetheowman? Biden should step aside over assault allegations The Democrats presidential nominee is taking heavy fire over these sexual assault allegations. Obama, Bernie, and many high profile Democrats have...
