Emotional Brian Stelter Urges Viewers to ‘Hold CNN Accountable’ During Final Broadcast

“Eunuch” Brian Stelter’s final episode aired on CNN, and though choking back tears, Stelter remained true to form until his last breath.

In his final show on the network, broadcast live on Sunday after Stelter learned he and his “Reliable Sources” team were losing their jobs at CNN the previous Thursday, Stelter urged his sparse viewers to “hold CNN accountable” in the network’s new era. He also appeared to choke back tears.

Stelter and his team learned their fate at CNN on Thursday following months of rumors suggesting the new Discovery-led management at CNN would can the hyper-partisan host this year. Seemingly even to the surprise of Stelter, the network allowed him to say goodbye to his viewership during one last broadcast.

“Here’s what I do know: I know it’s not partisan to stand up for decency and democracy and dialogue,” said Stelter, appearing to respond to the rumors that his show was canceled because of its rabidly anti-Trump and anti-Republican positions. “It’s not partisan to stand up to demagogues, it’s required. It’s patriotic.”

Then, Stelter demanded that his audience “hold CNN accountable” amid rumors that the network seeks to distance itself from the hyper-left wing era that saw CNN steadily lose viewers under the guidance of ex-leader Jeff Zucker.

“That’s why CNN needs to be strong,” said Stelter. “You viewers at home, it’s on you. CNN must remain strong.” The now-unemployed TV personality added, “It’s going to be on you to hold CNN accountable.”

Some, including Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, previously framed Stelter as a stooge of former CNN executive Jeff Zucker, who was among the first to leave the network amid the Discovery merger that ultimately led to new management.

Carlson repeatedly described as Zucker’s personal “court eunuch” while denouncing the left wing media show.

“Over on CNN, Jeff Zucker dispatched his eunuch to address the channel’s viewership,” said Carlson in one 2019 episode, before describing Stelter’s voice as a “squeak.”

By May of this year, only months before Stelter would be fired from the network, Carlson had stopped referring to Stelter by his name altogether, instead preferring to simply refer to him as “the eunuch.”

Despite the emasculating rumors that Stelter was a “eunuch” for Zucker, Stelter thanked the deposed executive for signing him to the network almost a decade ago in his final address.

“Thank you to Jeff Zucker for believing in me,” said Stelter. “For having the back of this organization for so many years, for having my back through everything, even through the death threats.”

While the end of Stelter’s final episode of “Reliable Sources” featured goodbyes and thank-yous, Stelter still managed to include fake news in his final broadcast.

He misleadingly claimed that his program was “one of CNN’s highest rated weekend shows” and “a one of a kind and popular” program for the network, while failing to note that his ratings have been in free fall for years.

As the Post Millennial noted, Stelter’s program regularly sees lower ratings than reruns of “The Golden Girls,” “Spongebob,” “Peppa Pig,” and “Paw Patrol.”

Despite firing him, CNN published Stelter’s final remarks on YouTube.

    Mr. Pappert!!… if I owned this site, and I discovered that some “commenter” was taking down another commenter’s free speech, then I’d remove such an individual from my threads and blacklist/ block the IP address of the offending PERPETRATOR! In addition, I would then contact the Cyber Unit of my Local Police Division and inform a Representative therein, that a visitor has been banned from my site… and then convey to the Representative, the IP Address of the PERP who has Jan6ed/ AlexJonesed a stranger’s free speech… and pointing out to the Representative, that inasmuch as free speech is a SUPREME PROVISION within the U.S. Constitution and within the UDHR (and thus, making it much more significant than the U.S. Criminal Code!), it is essential that a repeat offense be treated by police in accordance with it’s̲ severity!

    “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” ― Theodore Roosevelt Jr., Republican, and 26th President of the United States of America.

        And so and thus, to permit Donald Trump to be beyond criticism, to stand by while he attempts to escape long-overdue justice, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.

    Stelter has no worries. He will be perfect for a gig as assistant press secretary at the WH.
