Hackery is pretty much par for the course when it comes to CNN’s Brian Stelter. And yet, sometimes, he still manages to impress us with just how hack-y he’s willing to get.
NBC NEWS is wrong again! They cite “sources” which are constantly wrong. Problem is, like so many others, the sources probably don’t exist, they are fabricated, fiction! NBC, my former home with the Apprentice, is now as bad as Fake News CNN. Sad!

After NBC/MSNBC’s epic — and we do mean EPIC — bungling of the Michael Cohen “wiretap” story, Stelter defended them … and managed to turn it back to Trump:
It was a bad mistake. But NBC fessed up and corrected the error… A clear contrast with Trump's approach https://t.co/pomuBrNQNN

You can't excuse NBC like that.

Can’t he? He just did.

It never fails.
And that's the story you're going with?

The media tells us how bad Trump is every single day. You really think running with the "Well, we're not as bad as Trump" standard is a good plan? pic.twitter.com/5fTrkKrJGx

How long would it have taken to verify the story before setting the world ablaze? Ten minutes? Too good to check is the problem and THAT is very revealing about all of you, not just NBC.

I don’t know if it’s admirable or pathetic that you don’t even try and hide your bias. It’s like a badge of honor for you, for some reason.

Nor should you. If the jig wasn’t up before, it sure as hell is now.
Journalism. Try it.
