CNN media critic Brian Stelter pounced on Fox News for supposedly ignoring a big breaking story that was damaging to President Donald Trump — and received brutal blowback on social media over it.
It all started with a tweet from Stelter in which he accuses Fox and MSNBC of essentially ignoring the CNN lead.
Fox and MSNBC leading the 1pm hour with NH primary hype. CNN leading with breaking news: "DOJ STUNS WITH EXTRAORDINARY REVERSAL ON STONE SENTENCING."— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) February 11, 2020
Little did he know, Fox News actually broke the story originally.
Don't forget, Stelter is actually making a documentary about the rise of fake news that will debut in March on HBO. No word on whether he will feature his own antics in the production.
Reaction to his Tweet from social media was immediate, and epic. Here is just a small sample for your enjoyment. Life comes at you fast!
