(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) CNN host Brian Stelter whined about the treatment of CNN by other news networks, claiming that the network has reached the pinnacle of journalism, the Post Millennial reported.
Stelter began his tantrum by addressing the recent Jeff Zucker scandal that led to the former president stepping down.
“CNN was not built by just one man, not by only Ted Turner and it was not led only by Jeff Zucker” he said.
According to Stelter, the network has added meaning to his life.
“CNN is so much bigger than any single individual. It is about teams and teams of people, thousands of individuals who make up CNN.”
And though he admitted that the network has faults, he failed to mention any. He also suggested that they constantly improve due to their good will.
“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,” he said.
The host then turned his attention to faults pointed out by competitors, namely that CNN is full of blathering heads who spew their opinions constantly with no concern for journalistic integrity.
“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.”
According to Stelter, anyone who has a wrong opinion about CNN got that opinion from watching other channels.
“They’re watching complaints about CNN on other channels that don’t know what they’re talking about,” Stelter said.
He then boldly defied all doubters, claiming that CNN is the eternal news station and the ultimate source of political opinion for the American people.
“We’re not going anywhere,” he concluded.
