This week, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter talks about the liberal media cry and urges broadcasters to announce President Trump's "freak outs".
On his Sunday reliable sources show him said: "It is definitely well known that Trump's behavior deteriorates in type and frequency. It looks like he's more likely to act unpredictably. But he complained, "When you watch a nightly news program, how often do you hear how far Trump is from the road? Not often enough Yes, they notice the daily madness, but they rarely connect the dots between the freaks.
He praised CNN and MSNBC for "better emphasizing and putting into focus the ugly reality in banners and stories. "
Stelter led with two psychiatrists into his segment:" We can no longer walk around on tiptoe about it. We have to talk about it. Let's talk about it. Let's do that. Let me bring in two guests, two psychiatrists … "
Some of the screened chyrons CNN displayed as Stelter set out his case:
- " TIPTOEING AROUND TRUMP'S INSTABILITY "
- "TRUMP'S ACTION RAISE AWKWARD QUESTIONS ON FITNESS"
- "IF THE HEALTH OF A PRESIDENT IS THE HIGHEST HISTORY"
He said: "The story that is reflected every day on our television screens and in Twitter Plays. He is getting worse and worse. We can all see it. It happens in public. But it is still a very difficult, very delicate story. Of course, I'm talking about President Trump, about his behavior, about his instability, the contradictions, the lies, the total denial of reality … "
Stelter then recited his evidence and performed, as George Conway said," mentally unstable, "claimed Anthony Scaramucci that Trump had suffered a nervous breakdown, Trump's" racist comments on Baltimore "and" The Squad "as well as the confusion of Dayton with Toledo and the cancellation of his trip to Denmark over the Greenland dispute.
Stelter continued, "Look, all these stories are being told individually by reporters at the moment. News agencies use words like "unpredictable", "fleeting", "unstable", but rarely Trump's words and actions are treated as a whole, rarely taking them to the next level. Okay, what do you see ̵
"I've spent the week talking to major media from broadcasters and newspapers. It is definitely widespread that Trump's behavior is deteriorating in type and frequency. It seems he acts more unpredictable. I mean to call his chair of the US Federal Reserve an enemy and compare him to the Chinese Communist leader to send the markets into a free fall, go ahead?
"Of course, the president will always have a chorus up there to rationalize the irrational, to make excuses, or to say, hey, he was just kidding. His Fox fans claim that Trump's worst episodes have not happened at all, or you know, they blame the media for their poor coverage.
"But let's talk about this coverage, all but Fox. How often do you hear how far Trump is from the road on a nightly news program? Not often enough Yes, they notice the daily madness, but they rarely connect the dots between the freaks.
I think CNN and MSNBC are better at putting the ugly reality into banners and stories, but there is not really a vocabulary for it. There is not really a format to cover it … "
" So, there is something wrong. There are many theories about what it is. There are some doctors who believe that they know it. There are others who say we should not speculate. There are ethical questions about this conversation altogether. But we can not handle it anymore. We have to talk about it. Let's talk about it. Let's do it. Let me bring in two guests, two psychiatrists … "
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our weekly selection:" The only person here under any questions suffers from her mental fitness, is Stelter himself, who does not seem to recognize his own Trump Derangement syndrome, suspected that any strange Trump commentary is a proof of a mental health problem. Network messages are already 90% negative for Trump, but Stelter does not consider their flaws even more derogatory by declaring Trump mentally incompetent.
