Brian Stelter was peeled by people who called into C-SPAN’s Washington Journal segment Stelter hosted Thursday.
Callers insulted Stelter and CNN on live television while he was trying to promote the latest edition of his book, “Hoax,” according to The Post Millenial.

“I’d like to ask Brian to — on national television — admit he and his network are a bunch of liars about Donald Trump,” a caller asked Stelter.
“Mr. Stelter is the biggest minister of misinformation I have ever heard and I’m a news junkie,” another caller said, according to The Post Millenial. “He made the statement just a few minutes ago that the stories are ‘always evolving.’ Yeah, his stories absolutely ‘evolve.'” (RELATED: Brian Stelter’s Show, Which Opened By Taking Aim At Tucker, Sees Lowest Rating Of 2021)
“Thank you for the feedback,” Stelter said on air. “I appreciate it.”
“CNN is just something — it’s a joke,” another caller chimed in. “It’s a joke. This guy tells more lies, and Fox gives more news than CNN does in a few years.”
Glenn Greenwald took to Twitter June 7 to call out Stelter for his interview with Jen Psaki. “The only ones with a smaller audience than CNN is the Intercept,” Greenwald tweeted.
