Stelter’s CNN Farewell Bemoans ‘Strange Situation’ That Led to Firing

'The hard part's sorting out the treasure from the trash... '

(Headline USA) Ousted CNN anchor Brian Stelter delivered an on-air farewell during the final episode of his show “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, saying his firing was a part of a “super strange situation” at the network.

Most of the episode focused on how the media has changed over the past several years. At one point, Stelter claimed he cares about the “full spectrum of debate” and asked viewers to hold CNN and other networks accountable for their coverage.

Mostly Stelter and his leftist guests whined about having to tell the truth instead of their version of it, by starting to deliver actual reporting instead of fake news. Never one to shy away from shameless self-promotion, Stelter had high praise for Stelter.

“This small but mighty show punched above its weight for so many years,” Stelter said. “Even a former president commented on the cancellation.”

“This show’s going away, but there’s going to be so many more. We need to have room for media criticism and debate and discussion, and we will,” Stelter said. So much of the media ecosystem in 2022 is garbage, but so much of it is spectacular.

“The hard part’s sorting out the treasure from the trash. It’s on all of us. We are all members of the media, all helping to make it better.”

Trump did, in fact, celebrate Stelter’s ouster from CNN, slamming him as a liar.

“Brian Stelter of Fake News CNN got fired because he lied, and lied, and lied — ABOUT ME,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “May he REST IN PEACE!”

But Trump was far from the only one happy to see Stelter go.

Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon quipped that Stelter could consider working for a satire site now that he doesn’t have to pretend to care about the facts:
