CNN’s Stelter Goes Off on ‘Friends of Trump’ at Fox News: ‘Talking Like Propagandists’

CNN’s Brian Stelter opened this morning talking about Fox News’ coverage of the Robert Mueller probe in the last week and how the anti-FBI rhetoric has been seriously ratcheted up.

With the anti-Trump texts sent by FBI agents sent becoming a serious news item, reactions on Fox News have ranged from likening the FBI to the KGB and openly speculating about a “coup.”

Stelter said there is an “assault” on the Mueller investigation coming from both Fox and the White House, calling it a “feedback loop in action.”

And after showing Fox News framing the news as Mueller’s investigators being “in the hot seat,” he added, “This isn’t just an alternate reality. This is a reversal of reality.”

Stelter singled out Jeanine Pirro‘s commentary calling for to be taken out in cuffs before saying this:

“I don’t say this lightly, but these FOTs––these Friends of Trump––they’re talking like propagandists. This sounds like propaganda and it sounds dangerous.”
