Remember when Brian Stelter was an actual journalist?
Huh, we don’t either.
But it does seem like he’s finally embracing the idea that he’s more of an activist than a journalist. Or at least he’s not trying quite so hard to hide it.
Brave government employees are standing up to Trump's unbelievable claims about Hurricane Dorian. They are insisting on truth.https://t.co/QYzsHcfYab

‘Brave government employees are standing up to Trump.’
Funny, we don’t remember CNN covering brave government employees standing up to Obama.
Mollie Hemingway noticed something else in Brian’s newsletter:
In that newsletter, you falsely claimed NYT "added additional details" to Sciutto's story when they actually debunked all its key claims, or at very least contradicted them. Why would you lie to your readers about such an easily checkable issue?
— Mollie (@MZHemingway) September 10, 2019
Because he knows his sixteen readers (including Mollie) won’t read beyond the headline or care about whether or not what they’re reading is the truth.
Just a guess.
Because he knows that almost no one reads past the headline…even less past the blurb.

Like the Energizer Bunny, #BrianStelter just keeps coming back for more public humiliation.

So very busted.
He's on a mission, can't be distracted by truth.

'Ol Tater acts like he's in the Pulitzer-hunt for his riveting "sharpie-gate" coverage. #TDS

Because he's most comfortable with making up whatever suits him.

Mollie, it’s Brian Stelter.
Or was that rhetorical?

Narrative… regardless of facts.

It’s the media’s way.
