Is Fox News host trying to kill CNN media critic Brian Stelter with sugar?
The New York Post says that Has Carlson started a campaign to sugar shame Brian Stelter?
On Friday, Carlson’s own Daily Caller website reported that the Fox News personality had sent an unsolicited box of doughnuts to CNN media correspondent and “Reliable Sources” host Stelter, a frequent critic of Carlson who recently said, “I just want Fox News to be a healthy part of the media ecosystem.”
Now pals of Carlson tell Page Six that Carlson — who just last week nicknamed Stelter CNN’s “house eunuch . . . announcing proclamations from his tiny king [CNN president] Jeff Zucker” — will dispatch another box of Dunkin’ Donuts’ finest confections to Stelter next week.
It’s not quite clear what has prompted Carlson to mess with Stelter at this particular moment, though sources in the CNN camp think that Carlson’s intention is to “fat shame” Stelter.
Some sources guess that it’s over a story that Stelter wrote all the way back in November that suggested Carlson may have overstated the risk posed to his family by a protest at his home.
Rooting for a winner between Brian Stelter and Tucker Carlson is like rooting for a winner between gonorrhea and syphilis.
