Brian Stelter launches bizarre tweet when CNN drops some very bad news for FORMER host

CNN’s Brian Stelter, a staple of anti-Fox-News fake news, is officially out at CNN, and not surprisingly, he’s decided to go out with one last bit of fake news.

The drama began to unfold at 1:22 pm Thursday, when NPR published a story titled, “Brian Stelter to depart CNN as it cancels ‘Reliable Sources’ media show.”

Exactly four minutes later, Stelter posted a tweet acting as if he’d just learned about the termination.

“I picked a bad day to violate the ABC rule — Always Be Charging. I took the kiddos out sightseeing in midtown Manhattan and my phone’s at 2% 🤦🏼‍♂️,” he wrote.


But there’s a problem.

The fifth paragraph of NPR’s story begins as follows: “CNN chief Chris Licht informed Stelter of the decision yesterday.”

This means Stelter may have already known he’d been fired but pretended otherwise on Twitter. Cold busted!

Of course, in fairness, the longtime CNN host was likely only joshing around in his tweet, and that’s OK.

But as longtime critics of Mr. Stelter, it’s only appropriate that American Wire and BizPac Review take one final shot at him.

That said, the rest of the public’s reaction to his termination hasn’t been quite as congenial. Many conservatives have long resented Stelter’s attacks on Fox News and other non-establishment media sources.

As a member of the ruling class elite, Stelter appears to believe that only established “journalists” with fancy degrees, proper social connections, and respect from the big dogs up top deserve to be taken seriously.

While this attitude served him well in the past, these days it’s become a detriment as the public’s trust in the establishment media has cratered and more and more Americans have turned to non-establishment outlets like American Wire for their news.

This incidentally has coincided with the slow but inexorable decline of CNN, which began with the ouster of chief Jeff Zucker but has since also ensnared former host Chris Cuomo and former contributor Jeffrey Toobin.

That being said, the CNN of yore had its fans, and as the tweets below demonstrate, they’re outraged that the network’s most partisan hosts are being axed one by one:

Note that some of the comments from his supporters are outright delusional. Stelter did not question the establishment media, ergo why many referred to him as the media’s janitor. If anything, he always strived to clean up the media’s messes.

Stelter has also rarely sought to hold those in power accountable, except for when Republicans held the White House. But ever since Democrat President Joe Biden took office in January, he’s been swinging off of the administration’s chandeliers.

If anything, his departure from CNN means one less Democrat Party mouthpiece pretending to perform real journalism on national TV.

Though on the other hand, considering all the connections that Stelter has among the establishment elite, it’s likely he’ll quickly bounce back with a new gig …
