CNN’s Brian Stelter recently appeared on C-Span and things did not go well.
Caller after caller to the program, slammed Stelter and CNN for being biased and pushers of misinformation.
To Stelter’s credit, he took the criticism in stride.

CNN’s Brian Stelter roasted by C-SPAN callers: ‘Biggest minister of misinformation I have ever heard’
CNN’s Brian Stelter was mocked by callers who referred the media pundit as a “minister of misinformation” and evoked disgraced former CNN darling Michael Avenatti during an appearance on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” on Thursday.
“Mr. Stelter is the biggest minister of misinformation I have ever heard and I’m a news junkie,” a caller identified as Kevin from Indiana told the liberal CNN host.
“This gentleman told the American people, and his news organization…for four years that there was Russia collusion and actually, after all the $35-$40 million dollars and government investigation, we come to find out there was zero. Zero collusion from the Trump administration and Russia,” the caller continued. “His stories absolutely evolve.”
Stelter, who is regularly lampooned and often referred to as the media’s “hall monitor,” was polite when faced with direct criticism.
“Thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it,” Stelter said.
A separate caller identified as Gordon in Kansas asked Stelter to “admit he and his network are a bunch of liars about Donald Trump.”

Stelter is in a ratings free-fall as well. With Trump gone, lots of CNN hosts are having this problem.
