As CNN slips further and further into disgrace, Brian Stelter steps firmly into it.
Between CNN President Jeff Zucker’s resignation, triggered from a further investigation into the Cuomos’ sex scandals, and Hunter Biden’s Laptop, CNN can’t catch a break–and that’s just fantastic. But not if you’re a compulsive liar Brian Stelter.
“Hey, just curious, when did I claim ‘Hunter Biden’s laptop emails were likely Russian propaganda? Can you send me the quote?” he sent in a direct message on Twitter to this reporter, a reference to a Thursday Breitbart News article in which he was listed along with 14 others in establishment media for falsely suggesting the laptop was Russian propaganda and disinformation.
Yep, when called on his lies, Scumbag Stelter is now claiming that he never called Biden’s emails Russian disinformation, which, we can clearly see here that he did:

The full clip from Stelter’s show, published on CNN’s website on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020, right before the election, shows Stelter going through a rant for three full minutes on live television about this matter. In it, after making the case that the whole storyline was “created” in order to help then-President Donald Trump engage in what he called “whataboutism” with the media and left and Democrats, Stelter then cites his own outlet to say, “U.S. authorities are seeing if those emails we just talked about are connected to an ongoing Russian disinformation effort.”
Throughout his initial tirade back before the stolen election, Stelter repeatedly claims that the entire laptop is “disinformation” and “a classic example of the right-wing media machine,” without a single trace of irony. Now, he asks Breitbart to show him the “quote” where he makes such claims.
Damning screenshots from a conversation between Stelter and a writer for Breitbart reveal how the thin-skinned CNN host reacts when he appears to have his back against the wall. The fake news CNN host appears to leave the conversation offering no response to the question about his involvement in a possible coverup, given his close relationship to the disgraced former CNN President Jeff Zucker.
All of this comes not only from the laptop scandal but also from Stelter’s reported closeness to former CNN president Zucker, who is under investigation. Additionally, Stelter refuses to answer questions about other accused CNN creeps and scumbags such as Don Lemon, nor will he answer questions about the investigation more broadly.
