Brian Stelter: The Worse Things Get for Trump on Russia, The Worse the Fox News ‘Deflections’ Get

CNN’s Brian Stelter went after Fox News again this morning for how some of its hosts have been downplaying the ongoing Russia probe.

“The more Mueller discovers,” he said, “the more Trump’s TV boosters have to deny, deny, deny. The worse things look for Trump’s inner circle, the worse the deflections get.”

He showed a clip of Tucker Carlson saying most Americans just don’t care about the Russia “obsession,” bringing up a poll suggesting otherwise.

Greg Gutfeld recently likened Russia to the liberal version of Benghazi and said this is “paper thin.” Stelter said, “Only if you’re not looking at the paper. The paper is piling up, Greg.”

And finally, Stelter brought up Sean Hannity‘s claim about the scope of the special counsel investigation and said someone should show him the original letter on the appointment of the special counsel.
