(DCWatchdog.com) – HAPPENING NOW: To the satisfaction of many on the right side of the political aisle, Brian Stelter has been terminated at CNN as the network continues a significant shakeup of its programming and show hosts.
As National Review reports in “CNN Cancels Brian Stelter’s Reliable Sources, Longtime Anchor to Depart Network“:
“Brian Stelter, chief media correspondent for CNN and the host of Reliable Sources, is leaving the network, Stelter told NPR.
“The show has been canceled after a 30-year run on the network, the last nine of which have been anchored by Stelter. The longtime host, who was informed of the decision on Wednesday, told NPR that ‘it was a privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential.'” [emphasis added]
There is little doubt that Stelter was seen as biased against conservatives.
“Stelter and his show had been rumored to be on the chopping block ever since Chris Licht, who previously worked with Joe Scarborough and Stephen Colbert, succeeded ex-CNN president Jeff Zucker at the helm of the network.
“Under Zucker’s leadership, Stelter made the “right-wing media” the focus of his work, drawing accusations of bias from conservatives. Stelter has also often been critiqued for his role in defending CNN during various controversies.” [emphasis added]
