Brian Stelter to depart CNN as it cancels ‘Reliable Sources’ media show

CNN is canceling its Sunday media affairs show Reliable Sources, and host Brian Stelter is departing the network, Stelter tells NPR.

In a statement to NPR, Stelter says he’s grateful for the show and his team’s examination of “the media, truth and the stories that shape our world.”

“It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” Stelter said, promising to say more on Sunday’s show — its final episode.

Stelter got his start blogging about cable news as a student and went on to become a media reporter for The New York Times. Reliable Sources is the longest-running show on CNN; Stelter has hosted it for the past nine years and celebrated its 30th anniversary in March.

CNN chief Chris Licht informed Stelter of the decision yesterday. Licht has been making cuts throughout the network since taking the helm as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s takeover of the old Time Warner company. Stelter, who often touted the show’s ratings on Twitter, was among those CNN hosts targeted for frequent criticism from conservatives for his coverage of the media in the Trump years.

  1. This website is yet another WAY FAR LEFT WING wrong-think schill… no wonder it’s crickets here (you and your booty-buddy Klaus Schlabber can enjoy those crickets for a snack).
    Yeah, no bias in the fact checking, here!!?! Last line of this article says it all, “Stelter, who often touted the show’s ratings on Twitter, was among those CNN hosts targeted for frequent criticism from conservatives for his coverage of the media in the Trump years.” Awww poor Bry-Bry! He was targeted, eh? Or, he was called to the mat bc daily his embellishments and lies are far closer to the reason our county is in this mess.

    You lefties can sling all the mud, but cry foul when you get just a little bit dirty! Apparently, so called “fact-checking” is code for: “my opinion should be law enforcement, and if you don’t agree with me, then you need to go to jail or be shot.”
    Literally, and it’s not hard to find, heard no less than 5 “LEFT” jagg-offs on TV say right minded people should die for thier thoughts. Without free speech, where would a Lefty go? Then, you rather questionable people don’t even understand your rhetoric, your actions of lying about fact-checking IS THE BIGGEST THREAT TO ANY REPUBLIC, or a democracy. You literally advocate against freedom. Just dumb.
