Far-left CNN political commentator Brian Stelter grew visibly irate like a giant, angry polar bear (one in flip-flops and shorts, that is) when investigative journalists with Project Veritas recorded themselves confronting him inside the hallway of a New York City high-rise apartment building.
It’s not clear if the building was Stelter’s home. In case it was, it should be noted that his employer, CNN, has shown no qualms about confronting people at their homes.
Uploaded to YouTube and Rumble on Friday, the video footage began with a journalist approaching Stelter and casually asking how he was doing. Stelter responded in kind and seemed cheery and upbeat as usual up until the moment the tough questions began.
Watch Stelter huffing and puffing in anger below:
The questions all pertained to Charlie Chester, the CNN technical director who was recorded by Project Veritas’s journalists revealing how his employer essentially functions as a propaganda network.
Shared earlier in the week, the footage showed him admitting that CNN purposefully props up Democrat President Joe Biden, purposefully sells “fear” through coronavirus fear-mongering and purposefully trash-talks former President Donald Trump.
“[Has] CNN embraced Director’s Chester’s philosophy of the news? Does fear sell? [Is] Charlie Chester will employed at CNN?” the Project Veritas journalist asked Stelter.
The once-friendly polar bear of a man suddenly grew quiet, stared back at the journalist and then said, “I feel really bad for you.”
It was a bizarre remark given that Project Veritas is reportedly on the ascendant, whereas CNN and other mainstream networks are on the decline.
Undeterred by Stelter’s unusual remark, the journalist continued his line of questioning as the CNN commentator — whose official title is “chief media correspondent” (though all he seems to actually do is talk about how Fox News is bad and how the rest of the media are good) — tried walking away.
“Do you report any news that Jeff Zucker doesn’t directly tell you to report?” the journalist asked.
This prompted Stelter to stop in place, turn around and wave his hands around in frustration. As he did so, the logo on his t-shirt could be seen:
It’s not clear what he knows about journalism …
“Do you have any comments? Do you use his words, ‘propaganda?’ Is Charlie Chester still employed at CNN?” the journalist continued.
Stelter than repeated his prior refrain, saying, “I feel really bad for you.”
It was still unclear what he meant. He never acted this way when CNN’s own so-called “journalists” tracked random conservatives and Trump supporters to their homes and threatened to doxx them unless they did the network’s bidding.
“Why do you feel bad for me? We’re journalists,” the Project Veritas journalist replied.
He then asked Stelter whether he, too, is a journalist.
“Are you a journalist? Are you able to report anything that’s not directly handed down from …,” he said before being cut off.
“I report whatever I want!” Stelter roared.
The journalist’s actions were in reference to longstanding accusations that Stelter is nothing but a “stenographer” or “marionette” for CNN’s far-left CEO.
Whether or not that’s true, what’s known is that his “reporting” tends to be extremely biased to the far-left. He regularly and habitually distorts the truth to weave narratives conducive to whatever agenda the Democrat Party is currently pursuing.
But to be fair, so do virtually all of his colleagues:

The clip from Project Veritas ended with the journalist being escorted out of the building by a maintenance worker.
However, Stelter was mistaken if he thought that the reporter’s removal would be the end of it for him.
With the Project Veritas clip having now gone viral, he’s being inundated with thousands of additional questions on social media.

If journalism matters more than ever, why couldn’t you answer the damn question?https://t.co/lLOkqfMxId

@brianstelter “Journalism matters. Now more than ever,” REALLY? If that were the case why do you continuously mislead with twisted truths and lies? There will come a time when people will eventually realize your not telling the truth when it comes to the news, what then?

All this comes during the same week that the entire industrial mainstream media complex was exposed for having shared fake news.
Last year they seized on dubious claims from the intelligence community to attack and smear then-President Donald Trump. It was learned this week that the claims had been fiction. But mistakes happen, right?
The problem, according to liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald, is that the press still hasn’t learned its lesson.
“On Thursday, the U.S. Department of the Treasury … issued a short Press Release about its targeting of Russian-Ukrainian political consultant, Konstantin Kilimnik, with new sanctions. One sentence of this press release asserted a claim that the Mueller investigation, after searching for eighteen months, never found: namely, that ‘Kilimnik provided the Russia intelligence services with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy’ that he received from then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort,” Greenwald explained in a Substack post.
“Is it true that Kilimnik passed this polling data to the Kremlin? Maybe. But there is no way for a rational person — let alone someone calling themselves a ‘journalist’ — to conclude that it is true. Why? Because, like the CIA tale about Russian bounties — a claim they learned yesterday had no evidence — this is nothing more than a U.S. Government assertion that lacks any evidence.”
