CNN Cancels "Reliable Sources;" Announces the End of "The Tater Era"

Mashed tater.

I just took the last post down because, well. Who can talk about anything else except this.

CNN is canceling its Sunday media affairs show Reliable Sources, and host Brian Stelter is departing the network, Stelter tells NPR.

In a statement to NPR, Stelter says he's grateful for the show and his team's examination of "the media, truth and the stories that shape our world."

"It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential," Stelter said, promising to say more on Sunday's show -- its final episode.

...

CNN chief Chris Licht informed Stelter of the decision yesterday.

Thank to Comrade Flounder and others for tipping me.

Didn't I used to have a flaming baked potato?

We're all clowning on Tater, but there's an old Greek saying: "When you go out in search of vengeance against Brian Stelter, first dig two graves. Because he's really, really fat, and he won't fit in just one."

Here's George Orwell's description of Parsons:

He was a fattish but active man of paralysing stupidity, a mass of imbecile enthusiasms -- one of those completely unquestioning, devoted drudges on whom, more even than on the Thought Police, the stability of the Party depended.

TATER = PARSONS!

Corrected. It was Winston's neighbor Parsons being described, not Winston.

No, he didn't work cheaply. He was an early "new media" guy with a blog - and then he got discovered by Zucker. He was Zucker's boy. I don't know what Zucker saw in the tater, but he saw something.

The moment Zucker left the network, Tater was doomed. It was only a matter of time. And it turns out that Discovery works fast.

I agree, its a good approach to take. Break it down to the Headline News level, have a crawl of breaking headlines, and just do short segments on various events. Ditch the talking heads, ditch the overproduction, ditch the stars. If someone starts getting popular, replace them and keep the payroll low.

Not sure they would want to do that because Liz apparently still wants to run for prezzie in 2024 which means she would have to depart a show just finding its audience.

More likely they would hire her as contributor to different shows as the token republican like the view does.

>>What exactly did the little douchebag do before cnn? Should prolly go back to that.

He was a blogger who specialized in media and news jock sniffing, and CNN snapped him up.

This was in the early days of the internet when bloggers were trying to become legit and news organizations were scooping up "talent."

It's similar to the dot-com craze of the late 90s were you had mega-media-corporations buying up tech sites and snapping up tech startups.

It's how Mark Cuban became a billionaire, someone bought his vapor ware that ultimately never went anywhere but he made a cool 4 billion out of the deal.

This right here is the 2nd time I've run into a Labyrinth analogy. The first time it happened was about a decade ago, I had not seen the movie (I am old enough to have seen it when it came out). I was so unprepared and could not participate in the conversation. I said to myself - holy hell, why have you not seen Labyrinth? So unprepared. Just sitting there politely at the table as others pattered on about Labyrinth. I swore to myself I'd see it so I'd never find myself in that kind of vulnerable position again.

Since that time, I have still not seen Labyrinth. Pretty sure this proves I don't have the right priorities in life.

502 Gobbled up so many treats / Ate 'em all, took my chances / Went the distance, now I can't see my feet / Half a man with the hunger of five

So many times, it happens too fast / You crack a toilet for glory / Don't lose your grip on the meals gone past / You must fight just to keep them inside

It's the Eye of the Tater, it's the millionth bite / Bulkin' up to the weight of a freighter / And the fat, sweaty beta snacks again in the night / And he's watchin' us all... with the Eye of the Tater

592 What are Tater's top three redeeming qualities?
Posted by: NLurker at August 18, 2022 02:27 PM (eGTCV)

1. He has been a boon to potato farmers of America

2. Has inspired millions of kids to make sure they eat well, and not become like that fat man on TV.

3. Uhm I don’t think he has ever killed anyone?

621 kindltot,
Your post got me thinking as new streaming AceTV news channel resembling Weird Al's UHF movie.

You would have JJ, AtC, and Joe M doing the Morning Show. TJM and Moviegigue doing their Siskel and Ebert thing, Joe Mannix and RTG doing financial news. You would get the Prepper's corner show and general shows and AOP gets the ripped off Top Gear AceTV show. Beserker as the biker/metal show.

Rhomboid as foreign and political correspondent at large to lend class to it, Weasel as a better gun oriented version of Duck Dynasty, and so on. Ace gets the Max Headroom treatment as an poorly animated furry critter aka Ewok (enough to get by Disney's rights) with his own nighttime culture, news, and cruelty show of today's events. Sort of like Spy magazine was in its heyday.

I'd pay for it.

Wondering if I was too soft on him in his upbringing....

My HS buddy went through that, transferred to AF academy prep then into the AF academy. Retired as an O-6 Pilot. Then went to US Air and retired from there.

I couldn't get into Annapolis, started in a SUNY college. Went into NROTC scholarship program at another university. Commissioned and stayed until O-5.

We both had our ups and downs.

I guess what I'm staying is try to convince him to stay the course. He'll regret quitting. Good Luck.

I was pitching a remote music course to a guy I know who teaches drumming, via Rumble videos and using the payment and commenting channel via Locals. He didn't want the hassle and he had a decent number of students, but it is a good model.
I have pitched it as a remote learning platform too.

Locals has a good subscription model, and you can set it so some videos are available to anyone who registers, and some are private to paying subscription members, and commenting and viewing comments is restricted to paying members.
I believe that Rumble videos can be set private to be seen only through the Locals platform

If you think an online news model is doable, I encourage you to take a shot at it.

Please don't hire Tater to strip during it though.

That makes Jake the Snake more not less dangerous than Tater.

I had extensive DM contact with the slithering one during Benghazi, and laid out in concert with Richard Grenell that Urkle was lying his ass off or delinquent on security.....

Jake took in the info, acknowledged its veracity and never reported any of it.
