During his weekend media program “Reliable Sources,” CNN’s Brian Stelter apparently chose to ignore the biggest media scandal and story of the week: the revelation that CNN aired what amounted to an eight-hour public relations video for Democrat Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel.
“Reliable Sources” might have been recorded prior to the “Chicago Tribune’s” blockbuster Friday story that detailed a slew of emails revealing a shocking amount of coordination between Emanuel’s staff and “Chicagoland” producers to make the mayor look good. That means there is always next week for Stelter to explain, defend, or condemn his network for airing an eight-hour campaign ad for an embattled Democrat with national ambitions.
Over the weekend, Howard Kurtz of Fox News and his panelists spent more than five minutes criticizing Fox News.
Will Stelter and CNN show their viewers the same integrity?
