CNN host Brian Stelter is not exactly a big fan of the Fox News Channel, and it’s arguable that the feeling is mutual from the folks over at the FNC.
But the latest from CNN’s senior media reporter and host of the network’s Reliable Sources Sunday morning program has done nothing but further the notion that CNN really stands for Chicken Noodle News.
As reported by the Christian-based Lifezette.com news portal and also by News Busters, Stelter further eroded the already shaky reputation of network when he declared live and on the air that the only reason Fox News was covering the Rockville, Maryland rape case is due to his perceived “political agenda” perpetrated by “those pro-Trump hosts on Fox.”
Interestingly enough, Stelter failed to mention the scandal involving Donna Brazile being fed debate questions by his own network, nor did he bring up how his allies at ABC, CBS and NBC gave prime time coverage to the faked University of Virginia rape scandal committed by Rolling Stone magazine.
Nonetheless, as reported by of Lifezette;
Stelter, who once infamously wondered if President Donald Trump’s victory over former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was “a national emergency,” took issue with Fox News’ reporting on the alleged rape that occurred in Rockville High School on March 17. El Salvadoran Jose O. Montano, 17, and Guatemalan Henry E. Sanchez-Milian, 18, were charged with raping their classmate. Authorities confirmed that Sanchez-Milian was an illegal immigrant who was being considered for deportation prior to the assault.
As seen in the video below, Stelter’s rant included the following examples of personal opinion that was suppose to pass for hard news. Taken from the CNN transcript published by News Busters;
Rapes and assaults and murders are local news stories on a daily basis. But when do they break through to become national news and when do they not? This week health care bill, the talks in the House dominated cable news coverage all over the place, but Fox News also focused heavily on another story and sometimes tying it to the President’s immigration agenda. Watch.
A sickening story from Rockville, Maryland about an alleged rape at a school. Now on Fox all roads lead back to media bias. So Tucker Carlson called out channels like CNN for not covering this story thoroughly, for not covering it extensively. He also pointed out NBC, CBS, ABC’s nightly newscast did not cover this alleged rape.
