CNN's Brian Stelter complained about conservatives not posting vaccine selfies while hosting the network's ‘Reliable Sources’ on Sunday, April 11. The journalist, 35, insisted that conservative outlet Fox News should be boosting the ongoing coronavirus vaccine efforts as he said, “It’s really important to see all these TV anchors, personalities, showing themselves getting the shot. We’ve seen a lot of vaccine selfies from lots of folks at lots of different networks. It’s been really inspiring to see.”

Stelter then went on to say the name of a number of media personalities who publicly received their Covid-19 vaccinations. He continued, “The Today Show’ even brought the co-hosts outside for a live group vaccination this week. And Rachel Maddow on Friday on MSNBC talked about how she was really fearful of the needle, really worried about it, and yet it was important to get the shot and she did, and there she is talking about it on air.”

Later, Stelter questioned high-profile figures at Fox News since they have not shared any selfies of themselves while getting the shot. He added, “So, I say all of that to make the following point: Where are Tucker [Carlson] and Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham? Where is Ainsley Earhardt and Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade? Where are the biggest stars on Fox getting vaccinated?”

“I get that it’s a personal choice. I get that’s between, you know, the hosts and their health care provider, but everybody else is doing it, right Matt?” Stelter commented, addressing Matt Gertz of Media Matters for America. He added, “I mean, all across television, all these anchors are rolling up their sleeves. Why do you think we haven’t seen the biggest stars on Fox News get vaccinated or show us their vaccine selfies?” Gertz also did not stop himself from criticizing Fox News as he accused the network of “raising questions about its effectiveness, raising questions about whether it is dangerous.”

Several people took to Twitter to troll Stelter about his comments. One user posted, “Serious question: Do you think these clowns are serious or is this Howard-Stern-like schtick?” Another one wrote, “Can you believe the nerve? Their lack of virtue signaling is actually out-virtuing our virtue signaling!” A person stated, “These are the same people who said they wouldn't get vaccinated when Trump led the effort. Said they didn't trust it. Why are they so invested in forcing people to get vaccinated anyway? Don't masks work?”

A user said, “Brian Stelter never has and never will care about journalistic ethics. He and CNN are like Eric from Billy Madison when Billy picks 'business ethics' as the final trivia category. It's completely foreign to them. If they did, they'd be all over the Cuomo family, including Fredo.” The second person noted, “Brian Stelter’s obsession with FOX News is legitimately terrifying. I think there was a movie made about this level of obsession…” A third user, added “Stelter's obsessive attacks on Tucker are beyond parody. This hack and his network haven't mentioned Cuomo pulling state covid resources for VIPs including their primetime anchor a single time.”
