DUMPTY IN DENIAL: Stelter Says 'Too Early to Know' if CNN+ a Failure

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.22.22

CNN’s Brian Stelter isn’t great with facts. For example, it’s a fact that CNN+ is a total failure that flushed $300 million dollars down the toilet —but Humpty Dumpty isn’t ready to admit that. He says “it’s too early to know” if CNN+ is a failure or not. Spoiler: it is.

“Have you seen anything like this happen before, in the media business?” Stelter asked Puck News author Matthew Belloni on CNN+’s “Reliable Sources Daily.”

“No, and first of all, I think I’m making history now, I’ve never been on a program talking about the demise of that program,” Belloni says.

“Well, we probably have more viewers now than ever before because there’s so much curiosity. Let me try out a theory on you now, which is: it’s too early to know if this product, if this service was a success or a failure,” Stelter said. “You’ve got all the haters today saying this thing was a failure. I don’t know if we can even ever assess that, because it just simply didn’t have enough time because of the management’s change in direction,” he continued. “And at the end of the day if you buy something, if you buy a giant media company, you get to do whatever you want with it.”
