Mollie Hemingway Basically Sets CNN on Fire

A little background: Brian Stelter, who is supposedly CNN's "media critic," does nothing but criticize those who criticize the media, suggesting they're dangerously undermining a key part of democracy.

In the very show these Mollie Hemingway bits are clipped from, he railed against what he terms the "anti-media" -- basically, alternative media, conservative media, any public speaker who says the media has a liberal bias -- for corrupting America by feeding them lies that create an "alternate reality" for Trump voters.

CNN should just officially change his title to Official Establishment Media Defender. I've never seen him say anything about the media except it's awesome and anyone who disagrees is a liar.

But he did have on Mollie Hemingway, who told him, essentially, "I refuse."

And no, you're not hallucinating -- Brian Stelter actually asked on Dan Rather to be a character witness on behalf of the media, to refute the claim of their bias.

So yeah that's Dan Rather there with a bemused look on his face as Hemingway tells him the media might have a problem with out-of-control progressive partisanship.

Inviting Dan Rather on to rebut claims of media bias? Yeah, #ThatsHowYouGotTrump.
