Erik Wemple calls out firefighting 'stickler for public transparency' Brian Stelter for refusing to comment on CNN's Steele dossier disaster

The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple recently looked critically at the DOJ’s targeting of James O’Keefe and Project Veritas.

But first and foremost, Wemple is a media critic. And he has a few bones to pick with CNN, and particularly with self-righteous firefighter Brian Stelter:

Wemple writes:

Yet “Reliable Sources,” Brian Stelter’s Sunday media program on CNN, hasn’t found air time for the Steele dossier. There have been no mentions of the document over the past three editions of the program, though there has been chatter about how Fox mogul Rupert Murdoch may approach the 2024 election and Stephen K. Bannon’s podcast.

We asked Stelter to explain the dossier’s omission. “No on the record comment,” replied the stickler for public transparency via DM.

There’ll be no speculation here on why Stelter glossed over this story, though we should note: It would have made for some interesting television, given CNN’s own role in hyping the alleged “corroboration” of a document that has fallen apart bit by bit ever since its January 2017 publication by BuzzFeed News.

This isn’t the first time that Wemple has smacked Stelter and CNN for journalistic malpractice:

And it’s a safe bet that this won’t be the last time, either. Lord knows CNN and Stelter provide plenty of ammo on a regular basis.

Because Reliable Sources.

Now that is Real News, Mr. President.
