CNN’s Stelter Does Not Consider ‘Fox & Friends’ To Be a ‘Reliable News Source’

‘This is what happens when the president gets his morning briefing from conservative entertainment talk show, the show that prizes liberal bashing and pro-Trump messaging’

EXCERPT:

STELTER: "This is what happens when the president gets his morning briefing from a conservative entertainment talk show, the show that prizes liberal bashing and pro-Trump messaging as opposed to a morning briefing from a reliable news source. This is a mistake that Fox at 6:12 A.M. and then half an hour later the President tweeted about it. We haven’t heard from Fox. I’ve been asking Fox if they’re going to correct the error because there was pretty clearly a couple of errors on the air there. At one point the anchor said, 'This new report accuses Comey of putting our national security at risk,' and then of course the report also falsely said there was top secret info. Top secret, as you both know, is an actual defined term in the U.S. Government. No one is saying these memos had top secret information. Anyway, bottom line is that this is what happens when the President selectively, conveniently hears things on Fox that he then shares with his millions of Twitter followers, creates a news cycle, gets his fans angry at Comey and conveniently distracts from what I would argue is the more important story of the day, the story you led the hour with about Donald Trump Jr. and Manafort and Kushner."
