CNN host Brian Stelter admitted Monday that he purposely did not correct David Hogg’s fake statements about guns during a February 25th interview with the gun-control activist.
“There were a few times I wanted to jump in and say, ‘Let’s correct that fact.’ And at one of the times I did and other times I did not. There’s always that balance, how many times you’re going to interrupt,” Stelter said.
Stelter explained that he only corrected Hogg when the student claimed that Dana Loesch is the CEO of the National Rifle Association. Stelter did not mention which falsehoods he let slide.
The CNN host, however, was quick to emphasize his empathy with the student-led movement.
