Holy crap on a cracker. We’ve always known Brian Stelter was a hack, but this level of shameless sycophancy is appalling, even for him.

As Twitchy told you, during his self-aggrandizing midterm campaigning speech today, Barack Obama actually said this:

Pretty ballsy statement coming from the president who used his DOJ to spy on journalists.

But CNN’s Brian Stelter is evidently not only content to ignore that fact; he’s openly praising Obama as some kind of truth warrior:

Shorter Stelter: Thank you, sir! May I have another?

Remember when Brian Stelter kinda cared about that stuff?

If there’s a bigger hack in media right now than Brian Stelter, you’d be hard-pressed to find one.
