NPR Is Big Mad Over Fox News Reporting on Brian Stelter's Ratings Failure. Yes, THAT Brian Stelter
In recent years, news outlets have started hiring "media correspondents." These are people whose job it is to criticize how other news outlets report the news. It's stupid, but so is much of the media. Brian Stelter, who wrote a book about Fox News, is CNN's media correspondent. Fox News reported that Stelter's ratings are in the toilet. Apparently, people are not interested in seeing a genderless potato head complain about his prettier and more popular competitors.
David Folkenfilk is NPR's media correspondent. He wrote a book about Rupert Murdoch, who founded Fox News. Folkenfilk is big mad Fox News would tweet out a news article about TV ratings.
This is sent out by Fox News's primary Twitter account - 20MM+ followers - simply to disparage a rival media host who is frequently critical of the rhetoric on Fox.
Zero separation of news/PR here. https://t.co/u8YVEBrLCj

Three things come to mind. Outside of NPR's media critic getting upset that a news outlet would report on ratings news.
One, the Fox News article states that Stelter's Reliable Sources only averages 738,000 viewers. Monday's episode of Louder with Crowder, where we reported on CNN's Chris Cuomo being accused of sexual harassment, drew 744,000 viewers.
Two is this inconvenient tweet. Brian Stelter sharing a CNN link about Fox News's rating downturn.

Third, and probably most importantly, IT'S BRIAN F'N STELTER. He doesn't exist without Fox News.
- THIS IS CNN: Brian Stelter Is Super Angry at Tucker Carlson for Not Tweeting Vaccine Selfies
- Brian Stelter Writes Book About Fox News, Goes on MSNBC, Claims Fox News Is Obsessed with HIM
- Brian Stelter Thought This Book Excerpt Would Own Hannity, but He Owned Himself Instead
- WATCH: Tucker Carlson TORCHES Media Matters, CNN's Brian Stelter
- Tucker Carlson Accuses CNN of 'Misinformation,' Immediately Gets Proved Right by CNN
Really, all media correspondents should just make out with each other and get it over with. That way I can turn on Tucker Carlson and watch him make fun of them for it.
