CNN media reporter Brian Stelter was the subject of a hilarious photoshop by Fox News on “The Five.”
To demonstrate Stelter’s silence on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s attacks on the press, Fox News put Stelter’s head onto a cricket.

Stelter wrote more about the photoshop in his “Reliable Sources” email newsletter, saying:
“Bravo, Fox. I laughed out loud when I saw this. Greg Gutfeld dreamed it up, of course… Evidently the idea was that I’ve been silent about Bill de Blasio‘s criticism of Rupert Murdoch… Thus, ‘crickets.’ Some Twitter commenters pointed out that this looks more like a grasshopper, but I digress.
I DID say on Tuesday that politicians make lousy media critics, but Gutfeld’s not interested in that, he’s interested in producing awesome Photoshops. Well done! I’m CHIRPING with delight…”
At least he has a good sense of humor.
