CNN host Brian Stelter is not what you might call a “big fan” of President Donald Trump, often using his air time to slam him and his administration in an attempt to capitalize on the Trump hate that has seemingly swept the country since his inauguration in 2017.
Well, his most recent tirade against the president ended up backfiring in his face in a most epic way, actually proving Trump right instead of taking him down.
Here’s the scoop.
CNN’s Brian Stelter unintentionally legitimized President Donald Trump’s attacks on the media’s credibility when he claimed during a panel discussion that the president was “poisoning the American people” and that the American people have been “infected by the poison.”
Stelter, who made the comments while speaking at the Aspen Ideas Festival last week, said, “President Trump is poisoning the American people, a subset of the American people that have been infected by the poison, it is getting worse every day and we’re going to reckon with the consequences for decades.”
“I don’t mean to be the pessimist,” Stelter said. “I actually some days I am very optimistic. I wake up glass half-full a lot of days. And I think Trump’s pretty weak right now and we’re going to get through this, it’s an aberration.”
Stelter claimed that Trump is trying to destroy America’s news organizations because he calls out the media for lying and for spinning stories.
“[This] has never happened in our nation’s history as far as I’m aware,” Stelter said, ignoring the repeated attacks former President Barack Obama made on Fox News.

It’s pretty much a no-brainer to assume that the vast majority of the poisoning that’s happening to Americans in their political thinking is coming directly from people like Stelter and organizations like CNN.
These folks, who are supposed to be beholden to journalistic ethics, have forsaken their calling to be providers of fact and truth, opting instead to shove an agenda down the throats of the audience who consume their news products.
In other words, their job is to provide the material people need to think through issues, not to tell them what to think.
Perhaps one day the media will return to its roots as an arbiter of truth and hold all elected officials accountable for their actions instead of being the propaganda arm of a particular political party.
