Stelter ‘schooled’ by disinformation student proves many journalists are activists: Concha

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The ‘schooling’ of CNN left-leaning media analyst Brian Stelter by a freshman during a question-and-answer session continues to prove that many journalists are indeed activists, the Fox News contributor Joe Concha.

On “Hannity,” host Sean Hannity asked Concha and British author Douglas Murray to respond to the Stelter incident, along with “Atlantic” writer Anne Applebaum, calling the infamous laptop of Hunter Biden of “totally irrelevant”.

Concha said Stelter was “schooled” by 18-year-old Christopher Phillips, who asked about CNN’s own report, to which Stelter first nervously joked that it was time for a lunch break.

“[I]ironically [it was] at an event to discuss the dangers of misinformation — something Mr. Stelter is obviously an expert on for all the wrong reasons,” he said.

Stelter noted how Phillips pointed to CNN and mainstream coverage of ‘Mighty Ducks’ and ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett, as well as the Trump-Russia allegations and the Nicholas Sandmann incident at the ‘March for Life’. “.

He noted that CNN, among others, has since paid a legal settlement to Sandmann, then a Catholic school student in Kentucky, pictured smiling at a Native American activist while wearing a hat supporting Donald Trump.

“[Stelter] continues not to respond to any of the points raised by Phillips,” he said. “And we wonder why more and more Americans now see journalists as activists, and once that trust is broken, it’s very difficult to put Humpty-Dumpty back together.

Murray later commented on Applebaum, saying she was once a “distinguished historian of Russia” and later “went completely mad about a set of election results she just couldn’t accept” involving the Polish political party of her husband, MEP Radoslaw Sikorski. .

“So she decided Polish democracy wasn’t really democracy, the Brexit vote happened, she didn’t like it, so she decided it wasn’t really done fairly, and so on through Donald Trump,” Murray said.

“And now we have her saying on this panel about misinformation. I mean, you just can’t make it up – that she wouldn’t have covered the laptop story of Hunter Biden because it’s “just not that interesting to me. “”

Murray wondered how Hunter Biden would have made thousands of dollars a month “in a discipline he…knows nothing about” wouldn’t be at least somewhat curious.
