Left-wing anti-establishment reporter Glenn Greenwald shredded CNN’s Brian Stelter over his recent fawning interview with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
Greenwald compared the interview to something one would see on the state-owned television stations of a totalitarian nation.
As Fox News reports:

“I’m not using hyperbole when I say the ‘interview’ that @brianstelter did with Jen Psaki yesterday should be studied in journalism school.
