We know it’s Brian Stelter’s job to watch Fox News 12 hours a day and tweet about what he sees, but has he ever watched his own CNN show, “Reliable Sources”? The reason we ask is that Stelter finds it “surreal” to find three whole tweets included in a Philadelphia Inquirer op-ed arguing that there was nothing wrong with Justice Neil Gorsuch appearing on Fox News for an interview.
Stelter even said the writer used one of his tweets! We’ll bet it was this one about his tantrum over the Gorsuch appearance:
Justice Neil Gorsuch is on "Fox & Friends" right now. The Q: How is it appropriate for a Supreme Court justice to try to goose sales of his three-month-old book by chatting on one of the most partisan shows on TV?

In any case, he can’t believe people would use valuable print space on tweets and thinks they should be debated “here on Twitter!” Guess CNN airtime doesn’t count as valuable airtime.
It is surreal to see 3 tweets, including one of mine, used as the basis of a long op-ed in the Philly Inquirer. Humble suggestion: Debate tweets here on Twitter! Use print editorial space for more important, and local, issues. pic.twitter.com/wbGbLgIvHi

AYFKM? Brian you use a national TV show to talk about tweets — but a newspaper isn’t allowed to? You’re beyond parody. https://t.co/Z75kwTBbhN

“What I say isn’t important” is the best self- own by a CNN journalista since Acosta stood next to a border wall and said he didn’t see anyone crossing.

@brianstelter’s real problem is that the piece has a different opinion than his.

You’re just mad she roasted you for your dumb take. If she would’ve given you the glowing feedback you expected, you would’ve praised the use of tweets.

Bingo. Hey, remember the whole segment of his show he devoted to President Trump’s Twitter typos?

"Debate tweets here on Twitter"
*Does a twenty minute segment on Trump's tweets every other week*

your entire tv show is “lets talk about tweets for several hours”

Um, excuse me sir. Tweets are being used in Congressional hearings. Why not a newspaper?

You use your tweet subjects for content on your show ALL THE TIME.

You have an entire show centered around tweets. Humble suggestion: Debate tweets here on Twitter! Use television airtime for more important, and local, issues.

Suggestion: CNN should avoid telling other media how to do journalism.

Brian, you have got to be one of the most insufferable people in media, I cannot figure out how you are paid to do this except for the fact that there must be so much money in Trump hating that they’ll pay anyone to do it.
