Video cross-posted here at NewsBusters. On Sunday’s Reliable Sources, CNN’s Brian Stelter did his best to play up how after the terrorist attacks in Paris Americans often have a “fearful, sometimes even xenophobic” reaction yet dismisses fears of a future terrorist attack us unwarranted and irrational. The CNN host opened his show by declaring the attack on Paris “struck the heart of Western culture, by hitting Paris, they hit home” before touting the standard liberal line that much of America’s reaction has been “xenophobic” based in “fear which is “poison” and a “crippling poison.”
