WATCH: Tucker Reacts To Brian Stelter Being ‘Roasted’ By Guest On His Own Show
On Monday Tucker Carlson reacted to the ‘roasting’ of CNN’s Brian Stelter, commonly referred to on Tucker Carlson Tonight as “that weird little bald guy on CNN.”
The interview was on Brian Stelter’s “Reliable Sources”, featuring Michael Wolff, author of “Landslide: The Final Days of The Trump Presidency.”
“Here’s author Michael Wolff who was invited on to say one thing and then midway through the segment couldn’t take it anymore and decided to tell the truth,” Tucker said before playing the interview. “Watch.”
“I think the media has done a terrible job on this,” said Michael. “I think you yourself um you know [sic] while you’re a nice guy you know you’re full of sanctimony, um you know you’ve become a part of one of the parts of the problem of the media. “
Wolff then expressed frustrations with actors of the mainstream media often claiming a mantel of truth exclusive to themselves only.
“You know you come on here and you and you have a um you know a monopoly on truth, you know you know exactly how things are supposed to be done um you know [sic] you are why one of the reasons people can’t stand the media.”
Stelter laughed in response. “You’re cracking me up!”
“It’s your fault!” Wolff quickly replied.
Wolff then offered a word of advice to Stelter and the mainstream media as a whole.
“You know don’t talk so much; listen more. You know people have genuine problems with it with the media [sic] doesn’t get the story right the media exists in its own bubble.”
He soon after delivered the final blow.
“Figuring out what is real is not is not so uh is not so easy [sic]… and most people don’t wanna turn to Brian Stelter to tell us what’s real, I’m sorry.”
The clip then cut back to Tucker, who concluded the segment laughing at Stelter and the media’s expense.
“It’s hard to imagine a more succinct summation of modern media than that. Sanctimonious and stupid, exactly! Smart people understand their own flaws. Self-righteousness… is for morons… that’s why you see so much of it on television.”
