CNN’s Brian Stelter warns RNC likely will be “Stream of Disinformation”

During a CNN segment with the chyron on the bottom of the screen reading “Should TV networks air the RNC in full?” “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter warned the believes the RNC will present a “stream of disinformation.”

Stelter warned “I think we can expect, sadly, misinformation about voting, which is going to put news outlets in tough positions about when to interrupt, when to fact-check and how. here’s probably also going to be headlines about Covid-19 and safety concerns.”

He went on to say “the television networks will have interesting choices to make. Interesting decisions to make about whether to cut away if there’s this stream of disinformation happening live.”

Stelter then accused President Trump and Fox News of spreading misinformation and claimed “what we’re seeing currently in our political system in America is asymmetrical lying, where one side does it a whole lot more than the other. Where one leader and his followers mislead the public a lot more than the other side.”

Stelter concluded “If we don’t tell that story truthfully and honestly, then we’re part of the problem.”


One Twitter user replied “Let me guess. They didn’t have this question for the DNC.”
