Did CNN Host Brian Stelter Make Delta Incident Go Viral?

You would think that Brian Stelter, the host of “Reliable Sources”, would look into the incident before blindly re-tweeting the video…

 

 

Fox News Insider:

A YouTube celebrity made headlines and sparked outrage after he accused Delta Airlines of kicking him off a flight because he was speaking Arabic.

Many in the media immediately jumped to Adam Saleh’s defense, despite the fact that he’s a popular YouTube prankster known for these types of stunts.

Tonight, Tucker Carlson wondered if CNN host Brian Stelter helped make Saleh’s unsubstantiated video go viral by retweeting it.

Joe Concha, media reporter and columnist for The Hill, joined Carlson to discuss, pointing out that Stelter, ironically, is the host of a program called “Reliable Sources.”

“When somebody like Brian Stelter sends out that sort of video, shares it without context as to who this person is, it gives the story legs, it gives it legitimacy, it helps it go viral more, and most importantly, it basically is hurting American businesses,” Concha said.

Concha explained that #BoycottDelta was actually trending on Twitter shortly after Saleh’s video went viral.

“That’s why ‘fake news,’ in this context, is dangerous. It hurts American business.”
