CNN host Brian Stelter struggled against a guess this week who called him and CNN out on lying to the public.
Stelter, who believe it or not is CNN’s chief media correspondent challenged Bari Weiss on an allegation that she made against the left.
Weiss is the former opinion editor for the New York Times and she said that the left has been shutting down and preventing debate on important issues that we should be dialoguing about.
Stelter, mind you, lied to Americans about the Russian collusion hoax the whole time, just like every other Democrat did as well.
So when Stelter challenged Weiss on why she claims that the world has gone mad, she didn’t hold back and let him have it.
“When you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for the New York Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad,” she said. “When you’re not able to say out loud and in public that there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad. When we’re not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting, and it is bad, and that silence is not violence but violence is violence, the world has gone mad. When we’re not able to say that Hunter Biden’s laptop is a story worth pursuing, the world has gone mad. When, in the name of progress, young school children, as young as kindergarten, are being separated in public schools because of their race, and that is called “progress” rather than “segregation,” the world has gone mad.”
After that, Stelter being the provocateur that he is, asked, “who’s the people stopping the conversation? Who are they?”
“People that work at networks like, frankly, like the one I’m speaking on right now, who try and claim that it was racist to investigate the lab-leak theory.”
“You and I both know — and it would be delusional to claim otherwise — that touching your finger to an increasing number of subjects that have been deemed third rail by the mainstream institutions and increasingly by some of the tech companies will lead to reputational damage, perhaps you losing your job, your children sometimes being demonized as well, and so what happens is a kind of an internal self censorship,” Weiss told the bobble headed Stelter. “This is something that I saw over and over again when I was at the New York Times.”
