New CNN boss fires Brian Stelter

And gets rid of Reliable Sources. I thought Stelter was great in his informed takes on the media and did a fantastic job in taking down repub BS. I'm sure that's why he's gone.


When CNN brought in Licht from the Colbert show I thought he would do a good job, based on his work there. Now it just looks like he is kowtowing the owner's marching orders and trying to be "fair and balanced" - meaning giving more air time to RW sources and viewpoints. After being embarrassed by Briana Keilar the other day they had that idiot Rep. Mike Turner on again with Tapper today. Seems like we're seeing more of asshats dump apologists like Alice Stewart and Scott Jennings too. Not a good sign for the future at CNN.
