Sad! Not good!
CNN President Chris Licht apparently told Brian Stelter that his show "Reliable Sources" was going to be canceled earlier this week.
In a statement to NPR, Amy Entelis, CNN's executive vice president for talent and content development, said Stelter leaves the company "an impeccable broadcaster."
"We are proud of what Brian and his team accomplished over the years, and we're confident their impact and influence will long outlive the show," Entelis said.
Stelter is considered one of the top media reporters and critics in the country, serving as the New York Times's chief media correspondent after getting his start blogging about the television news industry while still a student in college.
He's one of the top reporters, but he's been canceled. I wonder why.
Much of his coverage, and that of CNN's entire media team in recent years, has focused on former President Trump, Fox News and the conservative media ecosystem generally.
I guess that attack angle didn't work! You could say that Stelter's ability to fail is his most reliable trait.
I know, I know, that's mean.
After all, we have to think of who this hurts the most: The crew at The Babylon Bee.
Stelter was the closest thing to a third joke that those guys had, and now he's gone...
Brian, call The Bee. I'm sure they could use a comedic voice like yours!
