CNN+: Forget Hunter, REAL Media Scandal Is CBS Hiring a Trump Official
The biggest media story to break all week was a series of Wednesday reports from the Washington Post that confirmed both Hunter Biden’s laptop and his shady deals with Chinese business interests, which upending previous media assertions it was all “Russian disinformation.” But that was of ZERO importance to CNN+ Reliable Sources Daily host Brian Stelter and his lackey Oliver Darcy on Thursday.
According to their twistedness, the real media controversy was a different Post story about CBS News hiring former Trump chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and pushback from some at the company.
“CBS executives are on the defensive for hiring former Trump White House official Mick Mulvaney and for not identifying him that way on the air in his first appearance. There's been some internal pushback including from top on-air talent,” Stelter announced at the top of the segment.
