CNN’s Brian Stelter Gets Shut Down with One Word from Nicolas Sandmann
CNN used to tout that they were the most trusted name in news. I guess they still do today, but I don’t watch that garbage, so I don’t even know if they still say that.
There is nothing about CNN that is trustworthy by any stretch of the imagination.
Time and time and time again, we’ve seen CNN get caught in lies and fabricating news stories. To CNN’s credit, it’s not just this one network that does this, but they are by far the biggest offender.
Then just this week, Brian Stelter felt brave this week and decided to call out Ron DeSantis for saying that the media lies and that we should just assume that they’re lying. Stelter tweeted,
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a regular on “corporate media” shows like Maria Bartiromo’s, says “we all know corporate media lies, OK? They do not tell the truth. Assume what they tell you is false and then figure out why they’re telling you a false narrative.”
Then he said,
GOP’s anti-media streak summarized: Governor of one of the biggest states in the USA says citizens should “assume” news outlets are lying to them
Hmm, where could he have gotten that idea about the media? Let me think…

What is beautiful about all of this was a one-word response from none other than Nicolas Sandmann…”Howdy”.
Howdy 🤠 https://t.co/J6949IkMSS

Sandmann recalls how things changed for him after the attacks on him and his character because of CNN:
“My life changed forever in that one moment. The full war machine of the mainstream media revved up into attack mode. They did so without ever researching the full video of the incident; without ever investigating Mr. Philips’ motives; or without ever asking me for my side of the story. And do you know why? Because the truth wasn’t important. Advancing their anti-Christian, anti-Conservative, anti-Donald Trump narrative was all that mattered. And if advancing their narrative ruined the reputation and future of a teenager from Covington, Kentucky…so be it. That will teach him not to wear a MAGA hat!
I learned that what was happening to me had a name. It was called being cancelled. As in annulled. As in revoked. As in made void. Cancelled is what’s happening to people around this country who refuse to be silenced by the far left. Many are being fired, humiliated or even threatened. Often, the media is a willing participant.
But I wouldn’t be cancelled. I fought back hard to expose the media for what they did to me and won a personal victory. While much more must be done, I look forward to the day that the media returns to providing balanced, responsible and accountable news coverage.”
