College Freshman Humiliates CNN Host at Media Conference: ‘All of CNN’s Mistakes Magically Go in One Direction’

CNN host Brian Stelter was humiliated by a college freshman during a media conference when the student shredded the network’s track record of leftist propaganda.

Stelter was a guest at the “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference which was put on by the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics and The Atlantic.

Stelter was part of a panel that included the New York Times’s Jim Rutenberg, The Dispatch’s Stephen Hayes, and Lauren Williams of Capital B.

During a Q&A, student Christopher Phillips called out the panel for going after Fox News for “spreading disinformation” when they themselves are guilty.

“You’ve all spoken extensively about Fox News being a purveyor of disinformation,” Phillips said.

“But CNN is right up there with them.

“They pushed the Russian collusion hoax, they pushed the Jussie Smollett hoax, they smeared Justice Kavanaugh as a rapist, and they also smeared Nick Sandmann as a white supremacist, and yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation.

“With mainstream corporate journalists becoming little more than apologists and cheerleaders for the regime, is it time to finally declare that the canon of journalistic ethics is dead or no longer operative.

“Why do all of the mistakes of the mainstream media, and CNN in particular, seem to magically all go in one direction.

“Are we expected to believe that this is all just some sort of random coincidence or is there something else behind it?”

Stelter appeared angered by the comments and tried to dismiss Phillips with a non-answer.

However, the damage was already done because the veil has been lifted.

Stelter first claimed Phillips must have been “describing a different channel than the one that I watch.”

He then tried to suggest he wasn’t biased by saying the last time he talked to a Biden aide they yelled at each other.

Next, instead of answering the question, Brian then lectured the student about how CNN helped an injured Fox News reporter in Ukraine.

He said:

“But, when Benjamin Hall, the Fox News correspondent, was wounded in Ukraine, the news crews at CNN and The New York Times stopped what they were doing and they tried to help.

“They tried to help him get out of the country, they tried to find the dead crew members.

“That’s what news outlets do.

“That’s how they actually do work together – to your question about sharing those kind of connections and trust.”
