BREAKING: Avenatti Sentenced to 30 Months in Prison-CNN’s Stelter’s Crystal Ball Delivers Opposite Predictions Once Again

Brian Stelter is about to get a desperately needed boost in ratings.  And the reason is Brian Stelter can definitely predict the future – just listen to what he says and pick the opposite.  If you watch Brian’s show, you are way ahead when it comes to picking stocks.

Today, Michael Avenatti – the person who Brian Stelter once picked as a serious Presidential contender – was sentenced to 30 months in prison for extorting his clients.

In this video, discussing “the grief he was getting from FOX” (unfounded, obviously) – Brian asked this insightful question about his brilliant prediction:

“Was it stupid on my part?”

The correct answer, of course, is a resounding “Yes.”  But any person who is capable of such blatant honesty (and pithiness) would never be a guest on CNN.  Instead, Stelter’s guest found a way to blame Stelter’s stupidity on… President Trump:

“One of the most weird and distressing things that Trump has done was to ‘Trumpify’ his opposition.”

At one point the guest even suggested that “Avenatti was very similar to Trump.”  The very fact that Michael Avenatti sits in a lonely jail cell today while President Trump is one of the most beloved and popular political figures, and will remain so long after Avenatti’s name is forgotten, says that Brian Stelter managed to find one guest who understands politics even less than himself.

The guest went on to suggest that Brian Stelter and the rest of the media were, in fact, right in “being drawn to Avenatti,” because they thought Avenatti could “beat Trump at his own game.”  So essentially, it’s Trump’s fault that the media got it wrong.

You may think that the media’s job is to ask questions, be skeptical, and report the accurate story. But you would be wrong. At the age of Trump, the media’s job is to “beat” Trump by any means possible. And that means Trump can never, ever be right. Even when he is.

Whether discrediting Hydroxychloroquinebotching the true origins of Covid, or completely missing the con of Avenatti, the media’s four-year game of “opposite day” today is blamed – again – on President Trump. “It’s not our fault that we got it wrong – Trump made us do it!

Or as AOC would put it, in the case of Michael Avenatti, Brian Stelter was factually incorrect but morally right.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.
