Brian Stelter and Guest Bemoan America’s Bad News ‘Brain Fog’ Under Biden

On Sunday’s Dependable Sources, CNN host Brian Stelter discovered an unimaginable quantity of destructive information: “Each time you activate the information today, you’re swamped by a tsunami of destructive information. The one issues not taking place are tsunamis.”

Inflation, inventory market losses, warfare in Ukraine, child components shortages – and apparently none of them are President Biden’s fault.

The title on display was “The information cycle is filled with doom and gloom.” As if CNN wasn’t a Doom And Gloom Community underneath Trump?

Stelter stated neglect about who in charge, this gloom is only a unhealthy factor! 


BILL CARTER: I do not bear in mind a huge pile up as unhealthy as this, nor actually a harmful interval — extra harmful interval. I believe it is actually harmful for the nation.

BRIAN STELTER: And political talkers, at all times attempting to deal with what does it imply for the Democrats and Biden within the midterms? Neglect about that for a minute. What does it imply for our psychology for our well being as a nation in a world? Once you’re simply inundated by seemingly destructive headlines on a regular basis?

CARTER: It looks like, lengthy COVID. We’re in the midst of —

STELTER: It looks like —

CARTER: We got here out of lengthy COVID. It is like the whole lot is unhealthy and we won’t get wholesome once more. And actually, it is a large problem, I believe, significantly for the media as a result of what tales do you deal with?

Stelter got here again round to the “lengthy COVID” metaphor, that we’re all just a bit sick. Carter stated “It is psychologically an extended COVID. And folks say, when you could have it, you could have mind fog. Nicely, that is what we type of have now. The place we’re like — we won’t even suppose clearer. What are we supposed to actually do? How can we assault this?” Stelter pulled this “mind fog” out and highlighted it in his Sunday night time e-newsletter. 

When Stelter requested what was “underappreciated” in all this unhealthy information, Carter gave Stelter precisely the narrative he wished, in that the Massive Story was America is being ruined by the Republican Celebration. “Nicely, I do suppose the overarching concept that now we have a celebration that basically needs to go autocratic can be a menace. It is actually harmful. However the warfare in Ukraine, that’s huge as a result of that has geopolitical implications that we won’t foresee. It could possibly be actually long-term.”

Then Carter lamented there’s “race-based incidents” and “it is spilling over into homophobia” with some “factor on-line with this man saying he is going after LGBT individuals.” 

Stelter tried to discover a silver lining: “However to make the counterargument, is it attainable that as a result of we see all this unhealthy information in our social feeds, in addition to on tv, it makes the world out to be even uglier than it truly is?” In different phrases, ought to we watch much less cable information? That is at all times humorous when it comes from cable information.
