Speaking to Donald Trump Jr. on his radio show Tuesday afternoon Sean Hannity repeated his attacks on CNN’s Brian Stelter.
Stelter has criticized Hannity for being “reckless” in spreading unfounded rumors about Hillary Clinton‘s health, and Hannity has responded with name-calling on various programs, including his own.
Hannity said Tuesday afternoon:
You have this little pipsqueak so-called media critic, and his show is unreliable, liberal Media Matters sources, and it’s sort of like the Media Matters show. And you got Brian ‘the stenographer’ Stelter doing the bidding of [CNN President] Jeff Zucker, and so they literally have the professor from the Kennedy School of Journalism who calls your dad a demagogue and says, well, demagogues if they’re elected, that usually leads to dictatorship. And the guy never questioned him.
The line “unreliable, liberal Media Matters sources” is a dig at Stelter’s show, which is called Reliable Sources.
I literally watched this show on CNN over the weekend, and you got this little pipsqueak named Brian Stelter. And he allowed this arrogant professor from the Kennedy School of Journalism to talk about Trump being a demagogue, and demagogues like Trump become dictators.
