CNN’s “Reliable Sources” to be canceled, Brian Stelter to leave

| August 19, 2022

The last “Reliable Sources” program will air on Sunday, August 21, 2022. Brian Stelter is set to depart CNN. A spokesperson for CNN informed Fox News Digital that CNN appreciated his contributions and that they wished him well for his future endeavors. For his part, Brian Stelter is grateful for the time he spent at CNN.

From Fox News:

Stelter’s exit comes as new CNN CEO Chris Licht has put an emphasis on “news,” as opposed to the liberal opinion programming that the network become known for under Jeff Zucker’s management, particularly during the Trump administration.

Stelter developed a reputation as a left-wing pundit who spent much of his airtime criticizing conservative media. He was recently called out in a report about an attempt to restore the organization’s nonpartisan approach as the “face of the network’s liberal shift” in the eyes of conservatives.

Stelter, one of the mainstream media’s most outspoken critics of former President Trump, will host his final CNN show on Sunday. In what many assumed was an attempt to appease new management, Stelter recently had an apparent epiphany about the severity of the Hunter Biden scandal, which turned out not to be a dismissable “right-wing media story” like the liberal pundit insisted in 2020.

“Reliable Sources” had issues attracting viewers during the Biden administration. In August, the show is down a staggering 41% among the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54 compared to the same month last year. For the year, Stelter’s program shed 26% of its 2021 total audience and 34% among the key demo. 2022 was also the lowest-rated year among the demo for “Reliable Sources” since before Trump took office.

Fox News and the Post-Millennial have additional details.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall…


“The Complicated History Of Mr. Potato Head” (The REAL Mr. Potato Head)…

“Hasbro caused a stir when the toy manufacturer said it would remove the Mister from Mr. Potato Head, leaving us with only Potato Head….The idea behind the gender-free, brand-name change, Hasbro said, was to be more inclusive so that all could feel “welcome to the Potato Head world.”

“Hasbro also said it would sell a playset in the fall without the Mr. and Mrs. designations, allowing kids to create their own type of potato families, with two moms or two dads.”

“The hullabaloo over how a toy potato identifies itself soon passed when Hasbro later announced that Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head would remain.”

The Moral Of The Above Story?

Thank Goodness Hasbro Came To Their Senses And Retained “Mr” Potato Head Versus “Potato Head.”

Thank Goodness CNN Came To Their Senses And Got Rid Of Mr. Potato Head, AKA Ole Brian Boy.



And now we know why Stelter’s nickname is “Tater.”

So, Hasbro went full potato.

Ironic that he only had a job because Donald Trump was President. This is what happens when you vote Democrat. He can always learn coding.




CNN “personality” Gun Bunny. He was an endless source of derision and ridicule, and will be missed.

The same way I miss former DC mayor Marion Barry.


Hopefully, oneday, we can fondly miss Al Sharpton and Maxine Waters…

And of course, Ole Brandon Boy…



OK, that ‘splains it. I haven’t looked at the Communist News Network since about March of 1991. Try to keep them blocked on my news feeds. *grin*


I added the “point-and-laugh” tag for just such an occasion, t.
