As Twitchy told you over the weekend, Mr. Reliable Source himself Brian Stelter teased an upcoming interview with actress Ann Dowd, one of the stars of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Because apparently after having some time to think about it, we’re actually “a few steps from the Handmaid’s Tale” after all.
Well, the interview finally came to pass, and Stelter breathlessly shared it this morning (for those of you unfortunate enough to have missed it):
I asked "Handmaid's" star Ann Dowd how close or how far America is from the reproductive dystopia of Gilead. Her answer: "We're a heck of a lot closer than we were in season one, which is terrible." https://t.co/cm3SiGA29A

The video’s even better:
These sources are reliably … uninformed. So, just the kinds of sources Stelter relies on.

And she’s an expert on the topic because she has a lead role??? Geez

Wow! Hard hitting “expert” analysis!

So glad you consulted the Hollywood actress. She totally has her finger on the pulse

Another great interview with an expert! I mean she does star on a T.V. show and the producer (a man) is there as well…great job CNN…I am more informed.

Well if the actress of a fictional TV show said it… ?
You seriously think this is news, Brian?

Sorry, did you say this woman was an ACTRESS?

We thought that went without saying.
At the end of the day, when you get home, do you honestly think to yourself "I've done an honest day's work"?

Anyway, we’re not sure if Stelter’s got next Sunday’s guests booked yet, but if not, maybe he can reach out to some more reliable sources to get us the news we can really use:
Brian how close are we to the days of Harry Potter? Can you ask Dumbledore for us?
