From Fox News:
The Father’s Day edition of CNN host Brian Stelter’s struggling program averaged only 656,000 viewers for its smallest audience of the year as “Reliable Sources” continues to suffer in the ratings department during the Biden era.
The dismal turnout marked the first time in 2021 that “Reliable Sources” failed to attract 700,000 viewers and Stelter’s left-wing media program has now fallen short of the one-million viewer benchmark for 12 straight weeks.
Fox News’ “MediaBuzz,” which is Stelter’s direct timeslot competitor, averaged 1.14 million viewers to top “Reliable Sources” by 74 percent.
The 35-year-old Stelter’s program managed to lose 13 percent of viewers from its June 13 episode which had previously been the show’s smallest audience of the year. The CNN host has found it difficult to attract viewers despite a recent book tour that included hobnobbing with Jeffrey Toobin days after CNN welcomed him back from an embarrassing masturbation scandal.
The stunning drop came days after podcast host Joe Rogan blasted Stelter’s program for sounding the alarm that certain YouTube personalities have more viewers than CNN “as if it was some horrible thing.”
“They didn’t even understand the way they were describing it,” Rogan said on Thursday. “They were describing it as if they’re entitled to viewers. They were saying, ‘There are people on YouTube right now that get more views than this show. This is because the market has spoken and your show’s f—ing terrible. Well, Brian Stelter’s show keeps slipping and slipping and slipping in the ratings.”

STELTER SOBS: Brian Whines, Asks Why ‘Tucker and Hannity’ Haven’t Posted ‘Vaccine Selfies’
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter whined over the weekend alongside a senior fellow at Media Matters; asking why “the biggest stars at Fox News” haven’t posted “vaccine selfies” on the internet.
“We’ve seen a lot of vaccine selfies from lots of folks at lots of different networks. It is been really inspiring to see,” Stelter stated.
“So I say all of that to make the following point: Where are Tucker and Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham? Where is Ainsley Earhardt and Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, where are the biggest stars on Fox getting vaccinated?” he asked.

“But everybody else is doing it,” Stelter continued. “All across television, all of those anchors are rolling up their sleeves. Why do you think we haven’t seen the biggest stars on Fox News get vaccinated or show us their vaccine selfies?”
“And so when instead of telling your viewers, look, go get the shot, it is in your interest, it is safe, it is incredibly effective, it will get us back to normal, they are raising questions about its effectiveness, raising questions about whether it is dangerous. That does a lot of damage,” Media Matters senior fellow Matt Gertz said. “Steve Doocy should get vaccinated live on ‘Fox & Friends.’ It would save the lives of his viewers. I don’t understand why they won’t do that.”
STELTER STUNNED: Caller Rips Brian’s Book, CNN’s Coverage of Nick Sandmann, ‘Lies’ About Trump
CNN media host Brian Stelter got an earful from an angry caller while discussing latest book on C-SPAN this week; pointing out his network has been promoting “thousands of lies” about the Trump administration for the last 46 months.
“You guys always talk about how many times Trump has lied, I’ve calculated that there have been 300 different distortions or disinformation that we get out of CNN,” said the caller. “If you add all that up to 46 months it comes out to 300,000 plus distortions of truth.”
“This is how low you’ll go. You go out and lie, defamed a child, then you had to settle out of court to pay this child for distorting information about him. If anything, that’s happening at CNN and anybody that buys your book, it’s really just one of the things dividing our nation.”
“I’m grateful for the call, and I know you’re not the only person that feels this way,” responded Stelter.
