CNN Parting Ways With Brian Stelter — Twitter Explodes
“Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter’s show is being canceled by CNN and he will no longer be a part of the network.
A CNN spokesperson told Fox News Digital, “CNN will end its ‘Reliable Sources’ program on Sunday, August 21st. As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors.”
Stelter also told NPR, “It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential.”
“Reliable Sources” is the longest-running show on the network, as NPR pointed out.
The news of Stelter leaving CNN sparked reaction on Twitter, including from Fox News’s Greg Gutfeld, who tweeted, “Yo [Brian Stelter] – my show is hiring.”
Yo @brianstelter – my show is hiring.

Today CNN took tremendous strides in management and operational stategy by firing Brian Stelter. This is no small feat. And should be commended. To repair American’s trust in the media they should shut down entirely next.
