Brian Stelter is out under CNN’s new policy to clean up their act. Don’t worry about Brian, he already has a few job offers. None more hilarious and fitting as a recent offer he received on Twitter from a satirical news site.
New CNN chief Chris Licht reportedly informed Stelter of the decision to cancel his show, “Reliable Sources,” yesterday. Licht started to evaluate the hyper-partisan so-called “talent” at the network shortly after he joined CNN as he aimed to dial down the extreme partisanship that has plagued the network in recent years.“
CNN will end its Reliable Sources program on Sunday, August 21st,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement. “As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors.”
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon quickly extended an offer to Stelter on social media, tweeting at Stelter: “Hey @brianstelter, would you be interested in working for the Bee?”
“We’re looking for talent with experience putting out funny fake news,” Dillon continued. “You come highly recommended. Shoot me a DM if you’re interested!”
‘The Five’ host Greg Gutfeld took shots at Stelter joking, Yo Brian Stelter – my show is hiring’.

In April, Stelter was visibly uncomfortable when confronted by a college freshman about his network being a “purveyor of disinformation” during a panel discussion at the Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy conference in Chicago.
Stelter has become known for turning a blind eye to many headlines that were far from flattering to his liberal allies in the industry.
Stelter built his career sensationalizing and misconstruing the truth as well as defending liberal outlets at all costs— so let’s all take a moment to enjoy some of Stelter’s highlights:
Stelter told NPR he was grateful for the opportunity to cover “the media, truth and the stories that shape our world.”
News of the host’s departure came less than a week after Zoom masturbator Jeffrey Toobin, the network’s chief legal analyst.
Thus far I think it seems like CNN’s new chief might actually be doing some good for the Network.
