One Of CNN’s Top Three Stooges Just Got The Boot

One Of CNN’s Top Three Stooges Just Got The Boot

Well, it finally happened. We’ve been talking about it for a while now, and yesterday, the CNN bosses finally made their move: they canceled Brian Stelter’s fake news show and sent him packing. NPR reported that CNN is canceling its Sunday media affairs show Reliable Sources, and host Brian Stelter is departing the network, Stelter tells NPR. In a statement to NPR, Stelter says he’s grateful for the show and his team’s examination of “the media, truth and the stories that shape our world.”

“It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” Stelter said, promising to say more on Sunday’s show — its final episode.

Stelter got his start blogging about cable news as a student and went on to become a media reporter for The New York Times. Reliable Sources is the longest-running show on CNN; Stelter has hosted it for the past nine years and celebrated its 30th anniversary in March.

CNN chief Chris Licht informed Stelter of the decision yesterday. Licht has been making cuts throughout the network since taking the helm as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s takeover of the old Time Warner company. Stelter, who often touted the show’s ratings on Twitter, was among those CNN hosts targeted for frequent criticism from conservatives for his coverage of the media in the Trump years.

Stelter, along with Don Lemon and Jim Acosta, have been the faces of “Fake News and TDS” at the embattled network. And it hasn’t been good for ratings.

CNN can’t seem to find its spot, even under new ownership, as the ratings continue to plummet. I have said all along, that the only hope CNN has of actually gaining some viewers back, is to get rid of those three stooges.

All of them.
