A CNN conspiracy theorist and alleged “news” anchor touted now-indicted attorney Michael Avenatti as a serious presidential contender for 2020 just months ago.
“I don’t know if it’s a good thing that star power and TV savvy is required for the job [of president], but I think it is,” Brian Stelter said.
Stelter hosts a CNN show unironically named “Reliable Sources,” which was responsible for spreading the RussiaGate conspiracy theory for nearly two years.
“And by the way, I think President Obama also had a lot of TV star power, and that helped him pre-Trump. But Trump is more evidence of this, and looking ahead to 2020, one reason I’m taking you seriously a contender is because of your presence on cable news.”
It’s worth noting that the only reason Avenatti ever had a “presence on cable news” is because he represented a client who was suing Trump, and the Trump-hating cable news invited him on nearly every day for a period of months. That suit eventually failed, as did Avenatti, who decided not to run for president in late 2018 in the midst of allegations of domestic abuse.
Avenatti was charged Monday with wire fraud for allegedly providing false income statements to a Mississippi bank in order to obtain a $4 million loan, and embezzlement of a client’s $1.6 million settlement. Separately he was charged with trying to extort Nike for $20 million.

More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
