Meghan McCain, a conservative columnist that has worked for MSNBC, ABC, and Fox, and daughter to the late Senator John McCain, ripped CNN’s Brian Stelter for saying the “real heroes” on 9/11 were anchormen.

Stelter tweeted an article written by David Bauder about the unity the media outlets created after 9/11, quoting it by saying “the closest thing that America had to national leaders on 9/11. They were the moral authority for the country on that first day,” adding in his own words “especially with political leaders in bunkers or otherwise out of sight…”

McCain responded by saying: “I don’t know what this is even designed to mean other than to be incendiary on a dark anniversary,” adding that “First responders led & ran into danger and died. Mayor Giuliani, Hillary Clinton, George Pataki, President Bush, Chuck Schumer…. there were many real leaders leading us.”
