Damn, it feels good to be Brian Stelter!
Seriously, making fat stacks by spending your day watching another network and complaining about it sounds like a pretty sweet gig. Not even Fox News covers Fox News as extensively as Brian Stelter:
Trump is self-isolating on Fox News. https://t.co/81FNw5swP8

If the ratings-conscious president had wanted to reach a bigger audience, he would have called into the “Today” show or “Good Morning America.” If he had wanted to be heard on the global stage, he would have granted an interview to CNN.
His decision to stay on Fox suggest he wants to shore up his base — and avoid difficult questioning.
He has turned down all interview requests from CNN.
Considering CNN’s open hostility to Donald Trump and the network’s reluctance to air the COVID19 press briefings without being filtered through their talking heads, is it really a surprise that Trump keeps giving CNN the cold shoulder?
Except he’s holding daily pressers and your network and many others are censoring him. So, who’s the problem, really? ? pic.twitter.com/ztopED0u4R

But all is not lost, Brian:
At least you can still turn to Sean Penn.
