Brian Stelter Is Very Upset Fox & Newsmax Won’t Cover Jan 6 Hearings

On CNN’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter dived head first into hysteria by going into a hysterical rant bemoaning that Fox News, Newsmax and the rest of the “MAGA media” probably won’t be covering the partisan primetime January 6 committee hearings on Thursday evening. 

Stelter came back from a commercial break in a tizzy over the hearings, boasting “this week the January 6 committee moves to prime time. Holding a key hearing on Thursday. With previously unseen material and witness testimony.” 

He claimed “over the past ten months of the committee’s investigation, we have already learned so much thanks to scoop after scoop from CNN and other outlets.” 

As he does every Sunday on his show, he made it about Fox News. “Yet pro-Trump media has denied, deflected, defended or just outright ignored the headlines.The coup plot was rooted in a big lie. Ever since then, new lies have surrounded it…Lies heard on shows like Tucker Carlson’s on Fox and Greg Kelly’s on Newsmax.”

Stelter was deeply disturbed that the January 6 2021 riots at the Capitol were mentioned “fewer than 150 times on Newsmax, and many of those mentions on Newsmax are dismissing the attack” in the year 2022.  

On the verge of tears, Stelter bemoaned the fact that Fox News & Tucker Carlson most likely won’t be airing any of the committee hearings: 

I’m not trying to claim that this doesn’t matter, the hearing doesn’t matter, I’m saying it’s important, and because it is important, it’s being rejected by the MAGA media. I mean will Fox even show the hearing on Thursday?

CNN and particularly Stelter always want to dictate what the rest of the media should or should not be covering. Why would Fox News cover a hearing where Republican congressional leadership’s appointments to the committee were rejected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi? 

Also the committee and their Democrat allies have repeatedly lashed out a Carlson and his network, so why would they give them airtime? Stelter doesn’t get to dictate what Fox News puts on air. 

Stelter lashing out at Fox News and NewsMax for not covering a partisan congressional committee was made possible by Allstate, AT&T, & Walmart. Their information is linked so you can let them know about the biased news they fund.

BRIAN STELTER: This week the January 6 committee moves to prime time. Holding a key hearing on Thursday. With previously unseen material and witness testimony. That’s what’s being promised. It is undoubtedly important, but will it register with a mass audience? Over the past ten months of the committee’s investigation, we have already learned so much thanks to scoop after scoop from CNN and other outlets, yet pro-Trump media has denied, deflected, defended or just outright ignored the headlines. 

I mean think about it. The coup plot was rooted in a big lie. Ever since then, new lies have surrounded it. Lies heard on shows like Tucker Carlson’s on Fox and Greg Kelly’s on Newsmax. It’s so important to understand the divide in the media when it comes to January 6. Two different extremes. I mean, look at MSNBC’s coverage, January 6 mentioned more than 800 times so far on MSNBC this year and fewer than 150 times on Newsmax, and many of those mentions on Newsmax are dismissing the attack. This is critical to understand, that it’s so normal now on the right, to deny, deflect or in the words of Carlson, to say the committee is wholly illegitimate.

STELTER: The Trump base does not want to hear about the coup attempt. The Trump base does not want to hear about the violence and about who inspired it, incited it. They don’t want to hear the revelations of the hearing this week. And I’m not trying to claim that this doesn’t matter, the hearing doesn’t matter, I’m saying it’s important, and because it is important, it’s being rejected by the MAGA media. I mean will Fox even show the hearing on Thursday? I asked a spokesperson for Fox News, I have not heard back. But it’s hard to imagine Tucker Carlson at 8pm eastern, who calls the committee illegitimate, Tucker “patriot purge” Carlson giving up his time slot to hear the truth about January 6? We’ll see what Fox does. We will see what Newsmax does. But as Vanity Fair pointed out, the question for the media this week is whether the hearing will break through.
