CNN’s Brian Stelter: ‘This Week Sean Hannity Won and the Rest of America Lost’

“Let’s be honest. This week Sean Hannity won and the rest of America lost.”

That was one of Brian Stelter‘s big takeaways on Reliable Sources this morning from the hype over the Nunes memo.

He said that people like Hannity were successful in distracting everyone and crowing about a deep state conspiracy “night after night after night… like a countdown clock.”

The memo, Stelter said, “gives the Hannitys of the world an alternative reality to live in” and it allows the President’s allies to employ the “I’m rubber, you’re glue” strategy on questions of collusion and obstruction.

He concluded that all this may be good for Hannity and his ratings and for President Trump, but it’s not good for the country.
