CNN likes to pretend it is still a news organization.
That charade is harder and harder to maintain.
And now one CNN host got embarrassed on live TV with this massive blunder.
CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter embodies everything the public hates about the corporate-controlled media.
Stelter claims he is a media reporter, yet all he seems to do is watch Fox News and demand more censorship of conservative views online and in cable news.
On the most recent episode of Reliable Sources, Stelter interviewed Yale Assistant Professor Joshua Kalla as part of his anti-Fox crusade.
Kalla just published a study about how media organizations filter the news to fit their partisan agendas.
Stelter seized on findings showing how Fox News did not cover negative stories about Republicans as much as CNN and other left-wing corporate-controlled media outlets did.
“Basically, you’re proving what we’ve sensed for a while,” Stelter began. “Which is, Fox viewers are in the dark about bad news for the GOP.”
Kalla explained that the study found that Fox and CNN covered different issues.
“That’s right,” Kalla began. “Fox and CNN cover different issues, and Fox News predominantly covers issues that make the GOP look good, and make Democrats look bad.”
But then Kalla called out CNN for its own political bias right to Stelter’s face.
“On the flip side, CNN engages in this partisan coverage filtering as well,” Kalla added.
Kalla cited the example of CNN burying the story of the Abrams Accords – which was a significant Middle East peace deal that Donald Trump brokered between Israel and Arab nations.
“Fox News covered this really major accomplishment about 15 times more than CNN did,” Kalla added. “We saw how much both networks are encouraging in this partisan coverage filtering. It’s not about one side, it’s about the media writ large.”
A flustered Stelter tried to wave off the criticism of CNN with the Left’s favorite trope of whining about “both sides.”
“I think you’re engaging in some both sides-ism there, Josh,” Stelter responded.
But Kalla stuck to his guns, saying CNN was just as guilty of partisan filtering of the news as any other media outlet.
“Not trying to lay out a moral equivalency,” Kalla concluded. “It’s not about what an objective standard is. It’s really about how all networks engage in this. And in order for viewers to get a realistic picture of the world, we need viewers to see all types of information. And unfortunately what we find in the study is that the viewers don’t want to engage in watching all sides.”
