We missed the opening of “The Five” Monday, but that’s OK, because CNN’s Brian Stelter never misses a single show on Fox News and was able to tell us what we missed. Apparently, the Fox News panel was talking about a segment on Stelter’s on Sunday show, “Reliable Sources,” on which he and fellow hall monitor Oliver Darcy called out Fox News for it’s fear-ridden chyrons, like one claiming the crime waves in some blue cities have turned them into “apocalyptic hellscapes.” That’s pretty good, actually.

But CNN … yes, CNN … claims that Fox News is using crisis chyrons to keep the nation in a state of fear. CNN, on the other hand, is like Seth Rogen telling you not to get worked up about your car getting broken into because that’s called “living in a big city.”

Somewhere well below “The Five” is putting it mildly.

Even Jen Psaki talked about crime during Monday’s press briefing.

Here’s the segment on “The Five” that had Stelter in a tizzy:
