True, because it has no credibility

Amid a raft of sexual scandals, resignations, firings and a monumental loss of viewership at the network, CNN head potato Brian Stelter continues to complain that it is false to claim CNN has no journalistic credibility.
Stelter complained that Jeff Zucker’s departure as CNN CEO was “shocking,” adding “CNN was not built by just one man, not by only Ted Turner and it was not led only by Jeff Zucker.”
He continued, “CNN is so much bigger than any single individual. It is about teams and teams of people, thousands of individuals who make up CNN.”
“This place is not perfect. It will never be perfect,” Stelter continued, adding “We will always have flaws, we will always screw up, we will always have to run corrections. We will always have to keep working to make it better and better and better every day. That is the goal.”
Then came the kicker.
“But the people who say we’re lacking journalism, that we’ve become an all-talk channel, that we’ve run off and we’re all opinions all the time, that Jeff Zucker led us astray, those people aren’t watching CNN,” Stelter claimed.
“They’re watching complaints about CNN on other channels that don’t know what they’re talking about,” Stelter clarified.
Stelter is telling the truth, those people are not watching CNN. But neither is anyone. They’ve lost 90 percent of their viewers in the past year.
Which is also very true.
Maybe because Joe Rogan didn’t claim Russia was secretly running America for five years straight.
Maybe because Rogan doesn’t creep around schools, spreading his legs in front of kids and educating them on what ‘misinformation’ is.
Rogan doesn’t have on guests who work for his own network and pretend they are impartial while they wax lyrical about how he has “saved democracy” in America.
Comedian Russell Brand has hit the nail on the head with this viral impression of Stelter:
