Well, maybe Brian Stelter, host of CNN Reliable Sources, isn’t a dope, but rather a Fox News basher for suggesting that Geraldo Rivera literally want the leaders of ISIS to be decapitated.

Or, perhaps Stelter is “just urging caution” when covering ISIS. After all, it was just four days ago when Rivera tweeted, “Behead the ISIS butchers.” It might have been easy to overlook the nuance there.

Rivera’s followers weren’t quite sure if he was being literal or not either.
