Liberals love authoritarians when they’re Communists…
While the media could not praise brutal authoritarian Fidel Castro enough upon his recent death, CNN’s Brian Stelter has suddenly developed an aversion to despotic governance.
…which is how Stelter sees a Donald Trump presidency.
On Sunday’s edition of “Reliable Sources,” Stelter insisted that the media needs to start referring to President-elect Trump as an authoritarian.
“I talk to international correspondents who say to you, ‘This is exactly what authoritarians do. This is what strong men do. This is what happens in authoritarian regimes,’” he said.
Stelter then issued a decree to his colleagues in the press.
“I think we need to start using those words on TV, at least, to discuss the possibilities before us,” he said, before getting to the crux of the matter — Trump’s defiant relationship with the dishonest media.
“What you do in an authoritarian regime is you delegitimize the press,” Stelter added.
