Stelter: I’m a ‘Content Machine’ for Fox News Because They Need Something to Complain About

‘I think it is important to be critiqued and we all have to learn from criticism’

RUSH EXCERPT:

STELTER: “Sometimes I think I’m just a content machine for Fox News because they need something to complain about. But in all seriousness, I think it is important to be critiqued and we all have to learn from criticism. I was trying to do more of a feature interview because I was not on the mail political program. So I was trying to do more of a feature interview. I thought it went well. I think it’s important we do listen to our good faith critics and we do try to learn from them. That’s the only way that journalism in this country is ever going to get better and we will ever win trust back, is by hearing our critics. I thought one of the most important Biden lines is when he said, we all have a responsibility to defend the truth and defeat the lies. In some ways, that is one of the biggest tests of the Biden era. It’s a challenge for Facebook, as you said.”
