CNN’s Brian Stelter: ‘Fox & Friends is now a Trump infomercial’

On the Sunday edition of CNN’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter gave his opinion on the Fox News show Fox & Friends, saying that it provides little when it comes to actual informative news and instead basically functions as a mouthpiece for Donald Trump.

“What would a daily infomercial for the Trump presidency look like? Actually, we don’t have to wonder. We have the answer right in front of us. It’s called Fox & Friends,” Stelter said.

According to Stelter, he and his staffers observed F&F for a week and saw it to be “Trump’s safe space.”

“The show is about showering Trump with positive attention and burying his enemies with negative attention,” he added.

In a series of clips, Stelter demonstrated how the show mimics White House talking points with zero scrutiny.

“The bottom line, you might look at this and see propaganda from Fox. I prefer to think of it as an infomercial,” Stelter concluded. “Fox & Friends is selling a product. In the guise of a news talk show like QVC or HSN. It’s a free country. Viewers should recognize what product Fox is selling.”
