The far left student activist David Hogg has become a regular on CNN. He regularly says outrageous things on the air but almost never gets challenged. S.E. Cupp recently asked CNN’s Brian Stelter about this and he admitted that he has allowed Hogg to tell untruths on the air.
The Blaze reports:
CNN host admits he let David Hogg tell lies during interview. Just wait until you hear his reason.
During an appearance on HLN’s “S.E. Cupp Unfiltered,” Stelter admitted that during a Feb. 25 interview with Hogg, he didn’t challenge Hogg when the student made some false claims.
Stelter’s admission came during a “passion versus policy” discussion, where show host S.E. Cupp questioned if TV networks are doing the students a “disservice” by airing their passions knowing policy is what actually moves the needle and accomplishes change.
“There were a few times I wanted to jump in and say, ‘Let’s correct that fact.’ And at one of the times I did and other times I did not. There’s always that balance, how many times you’re going to interrupt,” Stelter said.
Stelter explained that he only corrected Hogg when the student claimed that Dana Loesch is the CEO of the National Rifle Association. Stelter did not mention which falsehoods he let slide.
