Brian Stelter's Wife, Lady Tater, Claimed to be a Workplace Bully and to Have "Ostracized" and Disparaged a... Black Colleague

A pathetic, weak man has an overbearing, bullying wife? That's not possible! Life just doesn't work that way!

I refuse to believe that Tater's Pimp Hand is not strong.

I mean, just look at the quiet strength of Tater's voluptuous thighs!

CNN's Brian Stelter has built a career off anonymously sourced reports on behind-the-scenes media drama and his style of palace intrigue reporting is now happening to his own family, as his newscaster wife has been accused of workplace bullying by unnamed colleagues.

Stelter is married to NY1 traffic reporter and anchor Jamie Stelter, and her station has been plagued by a variety of issues, such as a lawsuit filed by five female anchors for age and gender discrimination that was settled last year.

Anonymous colleagues told Caitlin Moscatello of New York Magazine that Stelter is part of the problem in a piece headlined, "Inside the Petty, Vindictive, Career-Ruining Infighting at NY1" that was published on Monday.

"It appears Brian isn't the only bully in the Stelter family,' TV news blogger Scott Jones wrote after reading the piece.

"Colleagues say she and [business anchor Annika] Pergament began to behave like 'high-school bullies,' openly gossiping about co-workers-- sometimes with their mics still on," Moscatello wrote after speaking with 51 former and current NY1 staffers.

According to the article, Jamie Stelter engaged in "ostracism" tinged with racism against a black colleague:

Stelter was also accused of making "snide comments" about then--fellow traffic reporter Alyse Zwick and allegedly having "ostracized" a Black female colleague.

"Particularly disturbing to colleagues was the way Stelter and Pergament treated former weather anchor Stacy Ann Gooden, who was hired in 2017. Ten current and former employees say Gooden was ostracized by the three co-anchors. Insiders say Gooden was often excluded from meetings, and Stelter and Pergament would talk disparagingly about her on set," Moscatello wrote.


Former NY1 producer John Friia, one of the few on-the-record sources in the piece, said Gooden was often left out of on-air discussion and when she was allowed to speak it was typically "very short, abrupt."

"It got to the point where Stacy-Ann couldn't take it anymore because they were just outwardly rude," another anonymous former colleague told the magazine.

Gee I wonder if Tucker Carlson will talk about this.

The full article is here. New York Magazine is itself leftwing so Jamie Stelter's behavior must be really obnoxious for one leftwing media outlet to turn on another leftwing media figure.

Tater's got a Jake Tapper problem, too. By which I mean, his shitty book is tanking.

EXCLUSIVE: Brian Stelter's revised anti-Trump diatribe 'Hoax' tanks with less than 2,000 copies sold in its first week - despite massive book tour and launch party - as ratings for his CNN show drop to its lowest of the year

Earlier this month, CNN's Brian Stelter released an updated version to his 2020 book Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth

According to Bookscan, 'Hoax' sold just 1,738 copies in its first week, which left it off of the Publisher's Weekly bestseller list

The book doesn't even appear on Amazon's bestseller list and is ranked 4,007- behind children's books

The numbers are despite Stelter's aggressive book tour and launch party, which was attended by his CNN colleagues

This comes as Stelter's ratings continue to plummet after his Father's Day episode of 'Reliable Sources' drew only 656,000 viewers

I would say the sudden media interest in taking down Tater and Lady Tater might be caused by seeing blood in the water, but neither of these people have blood. They are Literally Potatoes (TM).
