CNN complains that Tucker Carlson's wonderful gesture of sending Brian "Butterball Powerbottom" Stelter a dozen jelly donuts is "fat shaming."

Wait -- fat shaming? I don't understand. In all the pictures from seven this journalist uses to represent himself, he's only mildly overweight, not obese.

So how could this be fat shaming?

CNN's Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter recently received a scrumptious box of jelly donuts from Dunkin' Donuts from Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson. Still no thank you. But "sources in the CNN camp" told the New York Post‘s Page Six that they believed Carlson’s gift was an act of "fat-shaming."


...

"Such bitches," remarked a Mirror spy observing the situation. "He gets a dozen free donuts and somehow he's the victim?"

Stelter, who has ballooned a little in recent years (but certainly not back to his post-200 pound weight), blew off The Mirror's request for comment Friday....

"Nobody plays the victim card better," noted a longtime media industry insider. "He can, without evidence, repeatedly question Trump's mental health but can’t handle receiving a box of donuts."

Yeah, and on that point: Brian "Fat Joker" Stelter is now chiding the media about indulging in too much speculation.

Which media could he mean? People other than himself?

Check out the Mark Dice parody of Brian "Tater" Stelter. Dice is subbing the voice but these are Little Brian Bigbottom's real words.

He repeatedly speculates -- nay, accuses -- the president of being mentally unfit, of having an "illness," of being an agent of Russia.

Which media, exactly, does he think he's in a position to criticize for their indulgence of speculation, conspiracy theories, fact-free allegations, and blurring the already very blurred (largely by people like Tater) line between reporting and opinion early-days-of-blogging-straight-up-ranting?

I'd like him to name names as to who he thinks is a less responsible "journalist" on cable news -- or at CNN in particular. I don't know who's more irresponsible and conspiracy-peddling between him and Don Lemon.


Thanks to Tami.
