Donald Trump Jr Compares CNN’s Brian Stelter to Potato Head – But He Isn’t Fazed: ‘Just More BS Fuel’
CNN's Brian Stelter is unwilling to be provoked by a childish comparison with Mr. Potato Head to a verbal spit with Donald Trump Jr., who threw away the insult during his speech at CPAC on Saturday.
In Sunday's Reliable Sources, Stelter said that such distractions and dribbles that later spread and grow on social and far-right media do what is intended: to divert people's attention from news that actually matters.
In particular, he pointed out how right-wing media have brought trivial stories like the renaming of Mr. Potato Head gender neutral or Disney + into the spotlight by disclaiming some old episodes of "The Muppets" where the program "includes negatives Representations and / or abuse of people or cultures.

"Something is wrong when the so-called 'cancellation culture' gets more attention than the problems millions of Americans face and the importance of a COVID relief bill," Stelter said. And then there was the insult to Trump Jr. that made Stelter slip off his back.
“I thought of some really cutting answers, some really clever ways to respond, some really clever ways to go viral. But then I stopped. I haven't posted anything, "said Stelter.
“It was just another distraction. He wanted me to answer. This was just BS fuel for the Culture War, and it doesn't matter. The best we can do for each other in this world of tweetstorms is not to let the sound confuse us. There is too much real news. "
