What’s worse than being a hack? Being a hack who refuses to acknowledge that he’s a hack. Which brings us to Brian Stelter:

No, he really said that:
“What I would say directly about the last two years and whether the press is living up to the challenges in the moment, I look at polling that suggests the public wants and needs what we do right now.”
But he acknowledged that even though it demands the work of the press, “the public has to hold newsrooms accountable,” as well; for instance, when viewers believe a female politician is receiving less fair coverage than a male rival, they should write to the journalists covering the campaign.
“I read every email from a viewer,” Stelter said. “I read every … The email’s the primary way that I hear from the audience, although Twitter and Facebook and those tools are also useful. I don’t wanna speak for every anchor and every journalist, but I think a lot of folks read those emails and take those emails to heart.”
He really takes the public’s feedback to heart, you guys. In his own special way.
I couldn’t help but belly laugh, as well.

Hard to hold Brian accountable when he won’t even hold himself accountable.
