Hosted by senior media correspondent and former New York Times writer Brian Stelter, Reliable Sources airs weekly on CNN at 11:00 AM Eastern on Sundays.
While the program was originally designed to hold the media more accountable, Stelter uses this platform to urge his colleagues to engage in hostile, opinionated coverage of the Trump White House. He reserves any media criticism for conservatives and conservative-leaning outlets -- all the while suggesting that it’s “offensive” to label him a liberal.
He has decried the Trump election as a “national emergency,” and lobbied journalists to start using the word “authoritarian” to describe Trump. As for Trump supporters, Stelter demeaned them as part of a “hate movement” as if they were followers of Hitler and Stalin.
