While it remains a mystery why and how Brian Stelter has any audience on CNN, the latest numbers do show it shrinking.
On Sunday the “Reliable Sources” host suffered its worst viewership of the year, with 923,000 tuning in. In the key 25-54 demographic only 195,000 tuned in. There’s no word on how many of these viewers are attributable to people accidentally leaving their TVs on.
This is a trend at CNN, as “Cuomo Prime Time” also had its lowest week recently, shedding 45% of its audience.
Like many pundits on the left, Stelter loves to play the role of ” media hall monitor,” seemingly spending more time watching Fox News than his own network (can’t blame him for that), and then complaining about it online and his show.
He had his lowest rating episode ever on Sunday, where he bemoaned the lack of COVID-19 vaccine selfies being posted by Fox News staff. “It’s really important to see all these TV anchors, personalities, showing themselves getting the shot. We’ve seen a lot of vaccine selfies from lots of folks at lots of different networks, it’s been really inspiring to see,” Stelter said. “So, I say all of that to make the following point,” Stelter said. “Where are the biggest stars on Fox getting vaccinated?”
CNN complains that Fox News hosts aren’t posting vaccine selfies

At one point (not shown in the video above), Stelter’s chyron read “FOX’S BIGGEST STARS HAVE NOT SHARED VACCINE SELFIES.”
While Fox’s hosts haven’t posted photos of themselves of getting vaccinated to social media (likely due to a lack of narcissism) Fox has indeed televised people getting vaccinated on multiple occasions. Stelter has separately complained on twitter that Fox hadn’t aired any live on-air vaccinations, which is incorrect:
A video released yesterday by Project Veritas from their “Expose CNN” series purports to show the network’s technical director Charlie Chester openly admitting that they’re a propaganda network. One such example he gave was in exaggerating baseless claims about Trump’s health. “[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to all tell a story that was all speculation – that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to – you know – whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. I think that’s propaganda,” he said.
Chester also said that he believes the network is “100%” responsible for getting Trump out of office – but obviously nowhere near enough people watch their network for that to be true.
