CNN’s Brian Stelter, a man whose program often relies on hyperbole, speculation and selective omitting and reporting, was kept honest on Sunday by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl, of all people.
Karl joined Stelter on his weekly show, “Reliable Sources,” as did other left-wing reporters, to speak about Biden’s first formal solo media briefing. Stelter threw what appeared to be empty praise on ABC News White House correspondent Cecilia Vega over her questioning of Biden about the border crisis last week.
But Stelter framed the discussion as being one where Biden was cornered into being asked about his crisis by a reporter who was using conservative talking points.
Prior to Karl joining the show, Stelter, Greg Sargent of The Washington Post and Salon reporter Amanda Marcotte had argued that tough questions directed at Biden were driven by pressure from conservative-leaning news outlets.
