CNN Host Brian Stelter stepped out of his liberal bubble at CNN.
It didn’t end well for him.
While promoting his new book on C-SPAN CNN Host Brian Stelter was roasted by C-SPAN callers.

“I’d like to ask Brian to—on national television—admit he and his network are a bunch of liars about Donald Trump,” the first caller asked.
Kevin from Indiana called in to say “Mr. Stelter is the biggest minister of misinformation I have ever heard and I’m a news junkie. He made the statement just a few minutes ago that the stories are ‘always evolving.’ Yeah, his stories absolutely ‘evolve.'” “Thank you for the feedback,” Stelter said politely, “I appreciate it.”
“I was just wondering if you still feel like Michael Avenatti is the greatest thing in the world and should run for president of the United States,” another called remarked. “My suggestion is, whatever CNN says, do the opposite and you’ll do fine.”
“CNN is just something—it’s a joke,” a caller said. “It’s a joke. This guy tells more lies, and Fox gives more news than CNN does in a few years.”
It isn’t only these callers that are turned off by Stelter either.
Stelter’s ratings have collapsed in the Post-Trump era.
CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter has failed to attract one million viewers for 11-straight weeks and averaged only 752,000 on Sunday for its smallest audience of 2021.
Stelter, who claims to cover the media industry but often ignores stories that would tarnish the reputation of a fellow liberal, lost five percent of his viewers compared to the previous week. The struggling show has now finished with less than 800,000 viewers on three different occasions in 2021.
Fox News’ “MediaBuzz,” which is Stelter’s direct timeslot competition, averaged 1.1 million viewers to beat the struggling CNN show by a whopping 41 percent. Fox News aired 12 different programs on Sunday alone that attracted a larger audience than “Reliable Sources.”
