Michael Wolff of the Hollywood Reporter gave a lesson to CNN’s Brian Stelter this weekend about how CNN and other liberal media outlets just keep making themselves look stupid.
He was pretty frank in his criticism.
The Hill reported:
Columnist to CNN’s Stelter: You’re becoming ‘quite a ridiculous figure’
USA Today and Hollywood Reporter columnist Michael Wolff slammed CNN’s Brian Stelter on his media affairs program Sunday, telling the host he was becoming “quite a ridiculous figure.”
The critique came as the conversation turned to a recent Newsweek column in which Wolff accused Stelter of delivering “a pious sermon about [Donald] Trump’s perfidiousness and nursing personal grudges.”
The 31-year-old “Reliable Sources” host asked Wolff if his style or substance was wrong in attempting to “fact-check the president.”
“I think it is, and I mean this with truly no disrespect, but I think you can border on being sort of quite a ridiculous figure. It is not a good look, to repeatedly and self-righteously defend your own self-interest. The media should not be the story every week.”
“Every week in this religious sense, you make it the story,” Wolff added. “We are not the story.”
Watch the video, this is great:
Wolff is dead on accurate here.
CNN thinks its job is to “take down Trump” rather than report the news.
