Nothing says you’re a ‘Reliable Source’ like admitting you allowed David Hogg to lie on your show … CNN just keeps steppin’ in it.
Brian Stelter, who hosts CNN’s “Reliable Sources” admitted that he let David Hogg get away with making false claims about firearms on his show last month. https://t.co/T042HZy4Nm

At least Brian finally admitted it.
From The Blaze:
Stelter’s admission came during a “passion versus policy” discussion, where show host S.E. Cupp questioned if TV networks are doing the students a “disservice” by airing their passions knowing policy is what actually moves the needle and accomplishes change.
“There were a few times I wanted to jump in and say, ‘Let’s correct that fact.’ And at one of the times I did and other times I did not. There’s always that balance, how many times you’re going to interrupt,” Stelter said.
In other words, he let David lie because it served his purpose.
Now when will Stelter admit to fraudulently presenting Dan Rather as a reliable source? #BabySteps

It probably hurt him a little.
Doesn't sound very "reliable" to me pic.twitter.com/tRLgsAicuI

Nope, not at all.
well had he done so during the interview it'd probably cost him ratings…. and that's all that's important.

It would have also hurt the narrative he really wants to push, this is the guy after all who bragged about how CNN was part of the March For Our Lives protest last week.
it seemed like the in thing to do

So much for truth in advertising.
