CNN’s most despised anchor ​Brian Stelter was caught flat-footed when he was asked a question by a student at a conference hosted by the far-left University of Chicago about bias in the media industry. The conference, which was hosted by the university and The Atlantic and titled “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy,” included several guest panelists who struggle with the definition of “truth,” including CNN’s Brian Stelter, Atlantic staff writer Anne Applebaum, and former Obama advisor David Axelrod.

Stelter got his hat handed to him when a young male student stood up to ask the CNN host a question about why he accused Fox of peddling misinformation and then gave several examples of misinformation pushed by CNN. In the video below, Brian Stelter can be seen hilariously sidestepping the young student’s brilliantly phrased questions as he first attempts to blame ” a popular right-wing narrative” about CNN and bizarrely diverts from the questions about why CNN lied about the phony Trump-Russia hoax, Jussie Smollett, Nick Sandmann, and other smears. Instead of answering him, Stelter told him a story about how when a Fox News journalist was wounded in Ukraine; they tried to help him.
