Someone should probably tell Brian Stelter that popping a chubby because a bunch of people watched the horrors of war on CNN is not a great look for any so-called journalist or pundit. We get it, Brian feels like they’re losing relevance (he blames YouTube and TikTok and not their crap reporting, which is adorbs) but claiming ’emergencies’ help their ratings … yeah, that sucks, even for him.
The past 24 hours are a reminder that consumers in an era of YouTube and TikTok still gravitate to trusted, established news outlets during emergencies. They "know where to go," so to speak. And television coverage is essential. https://t.co/qRDt82p4S0

This is pretty damn ghoulish, Tater.
Oh, and he either knew it was eff’d up or figured it out when people started dragging TF out of him, because he blocked/disabled replies from anyone he does not follow.
War is good for circulation

Yea, ratings are the important thing right now. https://t.co/U4XZ0fcvFL

SEE GUYS?! WE’RE STILL IMPORTANT!
So the only things that get your ratings out of the toilet are war and Trump. That explains a lot of your “reporting” https://t.co/M55k2zkWI0

What an odd admission that COVID isn't an emergency https://t.co/xhXQePBdTX

Whoa … good catch.
Blocked the mentions and still got ratio’d. https://t.co/epQR14OUSZ

It’s funny because honestly, disabling responses is almost worse. People will just ‘quote-tweet’ you which means more people see the response and then show up on your timeline to mock you for being a coward PLUS the crappy tweet.
Better to either not disable the responses or even tweet it all.
Brian Stelter, according to him the face of trusted news, has turned off replies because he’s tired of people calling him a liar. https://t.co/YBLbbi6SVN
