Geraldo: CNN’s Brian Stelter a ‘Pacifist’ Who Is ‘Obsessed’ with Brian Williams

On Monday morning, Fox’s Geraldo Rivera tweeted this doozy of a shot at a host from rival network CNN:

So let’s try to unpack this a bit:

1) Jamie Stelter is the wife of CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter. She is NY1’s morning traffic reporter. She apparently has Geraldo’s seal of approval. Congrats.

2) Brian Stelter is a “pacifist,” for some reason. We’d like to think this means Geraldo knows about some well-hidden Stelter anti-war philosophizing, but in reality, this seems to just be a Fox host essentially calling Stelter a pussy because…

3) Stelter has never embedded with the military abroad, hence the taunt “Did little Brian ever put self at risk?” Geraldo has reported overseas, and so has Brian Williams. So that makes “little” Stelter a “pacifist,” because journalists are apparently now members of the military or something.

4) Geraldo is defending Brian Williams’ honor, as a fellow ex-embed reporter. The Fox personality believes Stelter is “obsessing” over the BriWi scandal, but has no right to do so seeing as he’s never put himself at risk by drawing lines in sand abroad.

Gee, we wonder why CNN media reporter Brian Stelter would ever cover a media scandal. We’ll update if and when we figure it out.
