College Freshman Challenges CNN’s Brian Stelter During a ‘Disinformation’ Symposium And It’s Wonderful To Watch [VIDEO]

Brian Stelter serves as a media critic for CNN, the most untrusted source in news. Imagine that. A person in the media is a critic of people in the media. Now imagine a media critic who works for the ratings failure CNN network.

Stelter was confronted by a young college student, a freshman, about the abysmal failures of journalism during a CNN conference on disinformation.

CNN running a conference on disinformation is like the fox running a conference on chicken attacks in a henhouse. The gall of that network stuns!

Stelter has a show called “Reliable Sources” that is the most unreliable source of news in the industry, bar none. He and his panels sit around bitching about Fox News or any other news outlet or person who dares report real news. It’s one of the reasons CNN’s ratings are in the sewer.

Of course, Humpty Dumpty dismissed the question coming from the audience at a “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” symposium as being a “right-wing narrative.” The event was held at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.

Chris Philips, the young college freshman is the one who posed the question, and it was pound for pound one of the best I’ve heard asked of a Fake News member in a very long time.

“My question is for Mr. Stelter. You’ve all spoken extensively about Fox News being a purveyor of disinformation, but CNN is right up there with them,” Phillips alleged.

“They pushed the Russian collusion hoax, they pushed the Jussie Smollett hoax, they smeared Justice Kavanaugh as a rapist, and they also smeared Nick Sandmann as a white supremacist, and yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation. With mainstream corporate journalists becoming little more than apologists and cheerleaders for the regime, is it time to finally declare the canon of journalistic ethics is dead or no longer operative?” he asked.

BRAVO to this young man.

“All the mistakes of mainstream media and CNN in particular seem to magically all go in one direction. Are we expected to believe that this is all sort of random coincidence, or is there something else behind it?” Phillips added.

“It’s too bad, it’s time for lunch!” Stelter joked, and some polite applause was heard, but everyone there was probably wondering how Stelter was going to somehow weasel out of it.

You would think Stelter has gotten used to this kind of inquiry. Many times I’ve seen people from all walks of life talk about his pure bias and his reckless lying on the air.

“I think my honest answer to you, and I’ll come over and talk in more detail after this, is that I think you’re describing a different channel than the one that I watch. But I understand that that is a popular right wing narrative about CNN,” replied Stelter.

But it is the network Stelter watches. CNN did report the Russian collusion hoax daily for over two years. CNN did slander a minor, Nick Sandmann, and they paid a heavy price for doing so in a lawsuit. CNN did cover up the Hunter Biden laptop story by claiming it was Russian disinformation. CNN did report the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax as if it were a real story and the network attacked those who reported the truth. There are many more instances where CNN was on the wrong side of journalism and that is the rule and not the exception for that network.

And I have never once heard an apology from any of the liars on CNN for any of the lies they spread daily.

Nothing the young college freshman said to Stelter was inaccurate.

Stelter used that bit before and it was as much a lie back then as it is now. Back in February, Stelter went on the air to defend his network, saying of the critics, “They’re not watching CNN.”

“This place is not perfect. It will never be perfect. We will always have flaws, we will always screw up, we will always have to run corrections, we will always have to keep working to make it better and better and better every single day. That is the goal. But the people who say we’re lacking journalism, that we’ve become an all-talk channel, that we’ve run off, and we’re all opinions all the time, that Jeff Zucker led us astray, those people aren’t watching CNN. They’re not watching CNN. They’re watching complaints about CNN on other channels that don’t know what they’re talking about. That’s the truth.”

“We talk about shared reality and Democracy all these networks and all these channels have to defend democracy,” he added. “And when they screw up, admit it.” That’s ironic because CNN has never admitted to any screw up attacking Trump, and they became the 24/7 Trump attack machine for four long years.

Stelter continued by pointing out that CNN and other news crews showed how they supported each other when they helped Fox News journalists when they were attacked during the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“We don’t talk about it enough, though. We don’t share that reality about how that happens. And with regards to the regime, I think you mean President Biden, well the last time I spoke with a Biden aide, we yelled with each other,” Stelter continued.

Well, whoopty flipping ding! Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

“So that’s the reality of the news business, the people don’t see, the people don’t hear, they imagine it’s a situation that it simply is not, but I think your question speaks to the failure of journalism to show our work and show the reality of how our profession operates,” he added.

But CNN never does that. That’s the point Philips was making. I don’t think Stelter lives in reality. He still considers himself a journalist.

“We have a lot of work to do, I think,” Stelter concluded.

Stelter doesn’t realize the magnitude of just how bad his network is when considering journalistic ethics. My goodness, the George Costanza of journalism said in late February, on the air, that CNN was a “legal mess.”

And after all the scandals and all the airing of dirty laundry coming out about CNN, Stelter is still trying to provide cover.


John Nicosia of News Cycle Media tweeted out information obtained about Brian Stelter’s potential future at the unemployment office.

“At a recent (informal) Discovery Board meeting (largest shareholder) John Malone referred to CNN’s Brian Stelter as a ‘cancer’ and a “Zucker Henchman” that has “a failing show” – (more to come)”

YIKES! Sounds like the coffee boy’s days are numbered at the failing CNN network.
