Many times the liberal media gets conservative media wrong but then you have special individuals who purposely try to make a name for themselves. These individuals say the most idiotic things to draw ratings and attention to themselves. This is the case for CNN anchor Brian Stelter.
Stelter mentioned conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity in the same breath of conservative commentators who may want Hillary Clinton “dead,” yes he said dead.
How can you develop your mouth to be that stupid to say such a thing? I know we say journalistic integrity is dead but Stelter’s comments take the freaking cake! I have never heard Limbaugh or Hannity even touch on that point during their radio shows. Stelter is way off the map on this one and there needs to be more than an apology that follows.

From The Hill:
Shelter told PBS’s “Charlie Rose” on Wednesday night that some conservative media figures covering Clinton’s recent health bout of pneumonia are in a “truly deplorable basket. Sean Hannity fits into it, so does Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones and others. These are people who bring up rumors and innuendo about Clinton’s health, and have been doing it for years.”
Limbaugh slammed Stelter’s comments on his radio show Thursday.
“You’re specifically alleging, Brian, we want her to be sick. … You really need to research the transcripts of this program,” Limbaugh said.
“If you do, you will find that I am the one person who started expressing concern for Mrs. Clinton in a number of areas. The most recent time when she had that four-minute coughing spasm, it was I who asked, ‘How could her staff do that to her and not send somebody out to rescue her?’ ‘Who left her out to dry in that episode?’ ”
The 65-year-old radio host then went on to defend Hannity, a Fox News fixture.
“I know Sean Hannity, he doesn’t want anyone to die. What is this? This is — it’s bottom of the barrel stuff,” Limbaugh said.
“Stelter doesn’t really know what to say, he doesn’t really know how to categorize what I think or Hannity. ‘Hillary’s right, they want her to die. They want to see her on her deathbed. They want her to get sick.’ “
Hannity responded Thursday afternoon on his radio program as well.
“How do I get an apology from CNN? he asked. “Should I — I would love to sue them for slander when they say, ‘Oh he wants Hillary on her deathbed and dead,’ when I said just the opposite.
“I know it’s hard to sue when you’re a public figure, pretty much people can call you anything, and I’ve been called pretty much everything,” Hannity said.
“But I’m thinking of suing them. Maybe I’ll get [prominent lawyer] David Boies, my buddy, to do it.”
We need to get the narrative changed away from Hillary’s health which is what the Dems and the media want it to be. The truth is they’ll pump her full of whatever they have to to keep her alive until at least the election. She will have more than enough steroids to keep her standing until the bell tolls.
Therefore, the narrative needs to switch to her trustworthiness or lack thereof. Join me now in changing the narrative. Stelter still needs to be disciplined for being so reckless with his mouth. Do you agree?
