I remember in 2013 when Brian Stelter had taken over CNN’s Reliable Sources, a media affairs program that had been on CNN’s air for two decades. When Howie Kurtz left to go to FNC earlier in 2013; the network had tried different people to fill in, one was a long CNN guy (Frank Sesno IIRC), another dude and Brian Stelter, a man who is only less than two years older than I am. In the early teens to see a Millennial replace a Boomer, was interesting to see in retrospect, but what I fear is that many Millennials have grown up in toxic times, but sadly these people did not consume the media in the same way your’s truly did.

With Stelter taking over the reigns of Reliable, it became over time trashing Fox News Channel on a weekly basis, often the lead, sometimes it was legit, sometimes it was childish. Not to mention CNN’s internal drama was never covered, but at the same time media criticism took a back road, and while Media Buzz was the better program, the ghost of Fox News Channel’s past would haunt, and the wild fox would disease not only Media Buzz, but Kurtz became a rabid attack dog on the competition and promises to critique FNC was just a false promise.
