Jack Dorsey Shreds CNN’s Brian Stelter for Trashing Tucker Carlson: ‘And You All Are Selling Hope?’

Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey humiliated Brian Stelter after the CNN host attempted to smear Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Stelter tried to mock Carlson by commenting on a new piece by the Washington Post by saying: “Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing, @pbump says: ‘He’s selling doubt…’”

The hypocrisy of the comments was apparently lost on the divisive CNN host, however.

Dorsey quickly fired back at Stelter with a firm reminder of his own reputation: “And you all are selling hope?”

Stelter tried to grovel back in Dorsey’s good graces with:

“I’m just one person, but I enjoyed our CNN interview and would love to do it again – this topic deserves long form.”

Dorsey has also been active on Twitter bemoaning his role in creating a system that is ad-driven and centralized so voices can be silenced.

He said recently: “The days of usenet, irc, the web…even email (w PGP)…were amazing. centralizing discovery and identity into corporations really damaged the internet.

“I realize I’m partially to blame, and regret it.”

Affirm CEO and co-founder Max Levchin responded with:

“The internet changed from arthouse to blockbuster because it needed to gain an audience and make money.”

Dorsey said: “Perhaps greater emphasis on protocol first and then interface would have helped.

“I agree there was less technology options around making money tho.

“It led to advertising dominating.”

Dorsey also called out Twitter’s board of directors saying “it’s consistently been the dysfunction of the company.”

Venture capitalist Garry Tan posted on Twitter, “The wrong partner on your board can literally make a billion dollars in value evaporate. It is not the sole reason behind every startup failure, but it is the true story a surprising percentage of the time.”

Another Twitter user agreed and said: “Good boards don’t create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time.” Dorsey said:

Dorsey said: “Big facts.”

A Twitter user added a comment that said:

“If look into the history of the Twitter board, it’s intriguing as I was a witness on its early beginnings, mired in plots and coups, and particularly amongst Twitter’s founding members.”

To which Dorsey replied:

“It’s consistently been the dysfunction of the company.”

“Are you allowed to say this?” another user posted.
