CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter dished out some advice to Fox News hosts and commentators on Tuesday during the show “New Day.”
He said they should “think about their role” and conduct “soul-searching” because of the role he insisted they played in this past Saturday’s horrific massacre in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“So we can talk about fear-mongering, we can talk about the ridiculousness of this rhetoric, but it is effective among some people,” Stelter (pictured above) said.
“I sure hope some of those Fox hosts, some of those commentators, take a moment, take a minute to think about their role in this environment. Hopefully there is some soul-searching right now in the wake of this massacre,” he added.
