CNN’s Brian Stelter celebrated the 30th anniversary of his “Reliable Sources” show by avoiding the latest cover of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Stelter marked the 30th anniversary of CNN’s longest running program this month. While “Inside Politics” premiered earlier, Stelter noted that “Reliable Sources” was the only long-running show to experience zero interruptions.

Although the last segment focused on the first show in 1992, Stelter spent the majority of his show discussing the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine as well as the threat of “Russian disinformation”.

“A big issue has been misinformation and police misinformation. It’s really something that’s incredibly beneficial in a circumstance like this, but it can also be incredibly dangerous. That’s why it’s important to have communication channels that allow people to get accurate and verified information,” commented Mara Schiavocampo, former ABC and NBC correspondent.

However, Stelter avoided discussing the recent revelation regarding President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his infamous laptop. The New York Times confirmed on Thursday that the laptop found in a Delaware repair shop in 2019 had been “authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.” It came after an intense media suppression effort that either shunned the story when it surfaced in October 2020 or called the news “Russian disinformation”.

CNN and Brian Stelter were among many outlets that avoided discussing Hunter Biden’s story, although Stelter later referenced him on Meghan Markle’s podcast.

CNN executives were later filmed on a conference call admitting to spicing up the story on the day the story was first published by the New York Post.

“Obviously, we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden,” said CNN political director David Chalian.

Stelter was later set on fire by chief correspondent for the Washington Examiners Congress, Susan Ferrechio, on BBC Radio 4’s “The Media Show” for choosing to ignore the story in an apparent example of media bias.

“At the end of the day, it deserves careful scrutiny by all media outlets and if they pick and decide it’s not worth their time, I think it shows real bias,” Ferrechio said. “I think everybody deserved to watch the Mueller stuff and everybody should watch this and give Biden the scrutiny that, you know, he’s not running for president of Glee Club, he’s running for the presidency of the United States and this is serious.”

She also accused CNN of being unethical, which led to an explosive confrontation with Stelter.

“How dare you not dare!” Stelter yelled at him. “Don’t you dare act like newsrooms have no ethics in 2017 and 2018.”

The spike in the Hunter Biden story, particularly in the run-up to the 2020 election, has been criticized as a clear example of liberal bias, but many outlets have continued to avoid referencing the original story. White House press secretary Jen Psaki also repeatedly dodged any questions about the accuracy of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
