The Babylon Bee offered CNN’s Brian Stelter a job Thursday afternoon after the network announced that it was cutting Stelter’s show “Reliable Sources” after this weekend’s upcoming broadcast.
New CNN chief Chris Licht reportedly informed Stelter of the decision to cancel his show, “Reliable Sources,” yesterday. Licht started to evaluate the hyper-partisan so-called “talent” at the network shortly after he joined CNN as he aimed to dial down the extreme partisanship that has plagued the network in recent years.
“CNN will end its Reliable Sources program on Sunday, August 21st,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement. “As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors.”
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon quickly extended an offer to Stelter on social media, tweeting at Stelter: “Hey @brianstelter, would you be interested in working for the Bee?”
“We’re looking for talent with experience putting out funny fake news,” Dillon continued. “You come highly recommended. Shoot me a DM if you’re interested!”
Dillon was not the only one to offer Stelter a job following his ouster from the network.
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld tweeted at Stelter: “Yo @brianstelter – my show is hiring.”
Stelter said in a statement that it was a “rare privilege” to lead a show that examined what he claimed was the “truth.”
