Brian Stelter ratioed for quoting story claiming US leaders were 'in the bunker' on 9/11

 CNN’s Fat, Dumb, and Bald Guy can’t get enough of smelling his own farts, and he was breathing deep today on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

In a tweet linking to an AP article fawning over the bravery of their own profession and the importance of their branch of the Liberal Church, Stelter chose the most hideously cringe quote to include in his tweet as a gross overture to himself and his job.

The whole article is just absurd, but the quote, which is from a book that I can only assume is equally absurd, goes above and beyond. Which is of course exactly why the drama queen loves it so.

Stelter's critics, which included some prominent figures like Meghan McCain, hopped online to remind him of the heroics of first responders, and the decisive leadership of U.S. officials, most notably former President George W. Bush.

"I don't know what this is even designed to mean other than to be incendiary on a dark anniversary," McCain tweeted. "First responders led & ran into danger and died. Mayor Giuliani, Hillary Clinton, George Pataki, President Bush, Chuck Schumer.... there were many real leaders leading us."

Others accused Stelter of making the day of remembrance all about him and his fellow journalists.

Several pointed out that President Bush was out in front making decisions and being transparent with Americans throughout the tragic day.

"What in the world are you on about?" the Washington Examiner's Becket Adams tweeted. "President Bush delivered an address from the Oval Office that very evening."

Stelter responded to that tweet in particular, suggesting he was simply quoting the piece he shared. But several social media users noted he had tacked on his own input to the tweet.

"I remember," Stelter said. "Please send your objections to the author of the story or the person he quoted."

"You added your take outside the quotes!" the Media Research Center's Nicholas Fondacaro responded. "Also, you shared it. So at some level you liked it and agreed with it. You didn’t offer criticism, so what other deduction is there? Stop playing these stupid games Brian. We all know what you’re doing.
