Things on Twitter got heated Tuesday when CNN media correspondent and host of the network's show Reliable Sources Brian Stelter attempted to call out Fox News for failing to cover an important story on Roger Stone.
“Fox and MSNBC leading the 1pm hour with NH primary hype,” Stelter’s tweet read. “CNN leading with breaking news: “DOJ STUNS WITH EXTRAORDINARY REVERSAL ON STONE SENTENCING."
The story that Stelter was attempting to accuse Fox of ignoring was that of the DOJ’s surprising reversal regarding the sentence of convicted Trump ally Roger Stone. The DOJ went against its own prosecutors in seeking a lower punishment for Stone.
Unfortunately, as many Twitter users promptly informed Stelter, Fox News had, in fact, broken the story earlier in the day.
“Fox broke the story. Nice try, Scoops.” Wrote Twitter user Annie La B.
“Fox broke the friggin story,” said The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross.
