First off, our thoughts are with Brian Stelter, whose “Reliable Sources” show went daily with the launch of CNN+, but as you know, the owners are shutting down CNN+ at the end of April — just before Stelter was going to break through as the massive success story that saved CNN+.

If you want a clue as to why they’re pulling the plug on CNN+, these clips from Newsbusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro give a good idea. Stelter picked up on the Libs of Tik Tok story with a segment titled, “Real-World Impact of New Anti-LBGT Anger.” Stelter accuses Libs of Tik Tok of cherry-picking videos from random teachers. He also allows his guest to claim that “kids are dying” because of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law without any follow-up or pushback.

There would be no videos to “cherry-pick” if these teachers would stop posting them to TikTok.

Stelter never pushes back because he never has to — he only has guests who are ideologically aligned with him and CNN. And tell us more about the “real-world” impact of new anti-LGBT anger — like the death threats not only to Libs of Tik Tok but to a woman who shares the same name. The LGBT crowd certainly is full of anger.

Of course he did.

Yep … CNN+ just allowed you to pay to see even more of the exact same stuff that has CNN in the basement of cable news ratings.
