CNN’s Brian Stelter triggered by Ben Domenech’s ‘false and sickening’ headline about the news media

We’d heartily recommend (after you’ve read all of Twitchy, of course) clicking on over to The Federalist, where Ben Domenech has published a piece on the American media’s slobbering coverage of North Korea and Kim Yo Jong (North Korea’s Ivanka Trump!) over the weekend.

It’d be nice to say that American media doesn’t hate this country. From @bdomenech.

Here’s a sample:

It’d be nice to say that American media doesn’t hate this country. It’d be nice to claim that the American press, while maintaining objectivity and balancing against bias, is still inherently American – that they are patriots who love this country even as they report on its defects.

But we cannot say these things when the American media, time and again, illustrates its utter hatred for the nation and its people in those newspapers and on television. Having judged the American project kaput after the election of Donald Trump, they are now stooping to the level of defending the North Koreans – perhaps the most brutal and heinous regime in the world today – thanks to some side-eye from its minister of propaganda, the sister of Kim Jong Un.

That headline though — “Dear America: Your News Media Absolutely Hates You” — was more than CNN’s Brian Stelter could abide.

Headline says “Dear America: Your News Media Absolutely Hates You.” False and sickening. @bdomenech, you should put down the broad brush & get to know some more journalists.

Get to know some more journalists, huh?

Maybe you should put down the keyboard and get to know some more Americans

— Fusilli Spock (@awstar11) February 12, 2018

Actually, @bdomenech is 100% correct, especially after this weekend. Get to know more regular people.

— Mary Elizabeth (@mchastain81) February 12, 2018

No, you have that exactly backwards. The media should get to know America. You know us regular people who watched you slobber over the head of Propaganda in NoKo..

Counter challenge: Get to know the Americans you denigrate on a daily basis by accusing them of living in a Fox-fueled “alternative reality”

— Rob Eno (@Robeno) February 12, 2018

We know you hate us though.

Stelter’s beat is pretty much just painting people with a broad brush. His complaint here is fucking laughable.

Brian Stelter is mad that he can’t tell you you’re an idiot and still have your adulation.

— Matt’s Idea Shop (@MattsIdeaShop) February 13, 2018

I have a hard time thinking of ways to defend you Brian but you squandered any trust in you and Reliable Sources long ago.

Did @CNN ever use “false and sickening” to describe the NK regime this weekend or do they only reserve that sort of tough talk for true monsters like @bdomenech

— LocoLobo79 (@LocoLobo79) February 13, 2018

Sickening? C’mon.

Some hyperbole, perhaps, but the column was about disgust over hagiographic coverage of North Korea’s monstrous regime.

When you feel threatened by a @bdomenech article but spent all weekend glorifying a regime that murders and tortures

— Comfortably Smug (@ComfortablySmug) February 13, 2018

You should learn from this, but you won’t. You willingly focus in on the “broad brush” as distraction instead of content of what he saying.

— Kris Kinder (@kris_kinder) February 12, 2018

This sounds familiar: “It’s not what it looks like. You just don’t know him like I do.”

Hi @brianstelter, do you plan to do a segment on your show discussing the media’s — including your network’s — embarrassing and fawning behavior towards North Korea? If not, why not? Thanks.

— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) February 12, 2018

Brian – I look forward to your hard-hitting analysis of how @CNN reported on Kim Jong-Un’s sister (ironically, the director of N. Korea’s propaganda dept.) this past weekend.

It was so bad that even @DPRK_News had to break character and say “C’mon!”


— Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) February 12, 2018

To be honest, we’re kind of astounded that tweet is still up, considering the beating CNN took over it this weekend.

Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics

Maybe if you guys stopped fawning over a communist despot responsible for murdering American citizens, @bdomenech wouldn’t have a point.

— Daniel Vaughan (@dvaughanCI) February 12, 2018

Instead of lashing out at CNN’s critics, how about you look inward and find out why your network supported the propaganda master. You have a very serious problem when you’re sickened by the critics but not your own behavior.

From the people who brought you “Apples & Bananas” comes the hot new sitcom “Curb Your Criticism”
