Now that Jeff Zucker is out as president at CNN, people are starting to ask difficult questions that people at CNN need to answer.
Brian Stelter is their supposed media reporter. If this entire affair was an open secret among people in media, how did Stelter not know about it? He is either terrible at his job or a liar.
Some people believe he should be fired over this.
The New York Post reports:
CNN facing calls to fire Brian Stelter for not exposing Zucker-Gollust affair: report
CNN is facing calls to fire its chief media correspondent, Brian Stelter, for not exposing the ongoing romantic relationship between Jeff Zucker and senior executive Allison Gollust.
Stelter, 36, the network’s top media reporter and host of its “Reliable Sources” Sunday show, either dropped the ball by not exposing Zucker and Gollust or showed a stunning lack of awareness by not being privy to their romance, a CNN insider fumed to the Daily Mail.
“The network needs to step up and fire Brian Stelter,” the unidentified source said. “He is allegedly our top media reporter — yet he failed to report on the scoop that everyone in the office knew. And if he wants to say he didn’t know, he is truly terrible at his job.”
Zucker resigned in disgrace Wednesday after failing to disclose the relationship with Gollust, the network’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. The “consensual relationship” with his closest colleague at CNN came up during a probe into Chris Cuomo.
Brian Stelter has some explaining to do.
Now that is been revealed Zucker & Gollust were coaching Andrew Cuomo's press briefings, perhaps @brianstelter would care to explain the extent of his knowledge as well while making these comments. https://t.co/VhVKHuMKLH

What did Brian know and when did he know it?
