CNN’s “Reliable Sources” is in a ratings free-fall in 2021 without Donald Trump in the White House as new figures show Brian Stelter’s program failed to crack one million viewers for 11-straight weeks.
The show averaged just 752,000 viewers on Sunday for its tiniest audience since the Inauguration of Joe Biden back in January.
“Stelter, who claims to cover the media industry but often ignores stories that would tarnish the reputation of a fellow liberal, lost five percent of his viewers compared to the previous week. The struggling show has now finished with less than 800,000 viewers on three different occasions in 2021,” reports Fox News.
“Reliable Sources’ has now failed to attract even 200,000 viewers among the crucial demographic of adults age 25-54 for 10-straight weeks. Sunday’s episode was seen by only 129,000 viewers among the key demo, which was the show’s third-worst performance of the year in the category most important to advertisers. ‘MediaBuzz’ averaged 185,000 demo viewers to beat ‘Reliable Sources’ by 43 percent,” adds Fox.

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.
