Seems to be that there is some in-house-fighting going on in CNN between hosts Jake Tapper and “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter about Michael Wolff’s controversial book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” as reports say.
Stelter claims that Wolff makes “sloppy” mistakes in his book, like misquoting Stelter, but, it turns out to be an accurate quote. Still, he supports the book, but with skepticism.
Tapper, who is far from being pro-Trump, has taken a jab at Stelter for actively trying to push a book that is rife with factual errors.
Tapper’s critique of Stelter’s journalistic principles came the same day that he defended President Trump and his family from accusations made in the book.
Farhi and Tapper have taken into Twitter to discuss the validity of claims in Wolff’s book. Farhi has revealed that he was also very skeptical of the information found in the book, before asking Tapper if he believes that Wolff may have interviewed members of Trump’s family.
Thanks to the fact-less book, it has been used by many left-leaning reporters, such as Stelter, as proof that President Trump is “an unstable president and a danger to our country.”
Stelter has made the claim many times on his show that President Trump’s mental stability is now a global story, due to certain stories and information in the book, most notably from Trump’s former aide Steve Bannon.
Bannon has since stated that he regrets comments he made to Wolff and has added that his support for the Trump administration and its agenda is steady and unwavering.
