BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – CNN’s go-to media correspondent Brian Stelter faced an avalanche of criticism for dodging questions surrounding the ethical scandals that have plagued his network in recent weeks.
CNN has been rocked with a series of negative headlines, including anchor Jake Tapper getting caught urging a popular Republican not to challenge an incumbent Democrat for a House seat; CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker offering advice to President Trump’s former lawyer prior to the 2016 election; and the ongoing controversy surrounding the network’s coverage of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, whose brother Chris Cuomo is a primetime host on the network.
Stelter is regularly accused of overlooking controversies related to his network, but was pressed on recent issues by “The View” co-host Meghan McCain.
Stelter responded that McCain should “write a book” because she was able to rattle off so many negative CNN storylines before essentially dismissing the question. “Let me tell you something young lady,” Stelter said to her in a stern a condescending tone. “You’re a republican, so you shouldn’t even be a co-host on that show! Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg would never ask me anything like that because we’re on the same team, and you can learn a lot by listening to those two old bats!”
