Stelter Decries 'Right-Wing' Media 'Arsonists' for ‘Creating’ Omar-9/11 Controversy
By Nicholas Fondacaro | April 14, 2019 3:15 PM EDT

By now, you’ve undoubtedly seen the disgusting 9/11 comments made by anti-Semite Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN-D) before the terrorism-supporting Council on American Islamic Relations. Well, during Sunday’s so-called Reliable Sources, CNN host and media dung-sweeper Brian Stelter defended her while denouncing conservative media for cooking up the controversy. He likened it to “an arsonist lighting a match”.

In a segment that sought to explain how controversies were cooked up (seemingly only from the right), Stelter walked his few viewers through how he supposed Omar’s comments were pounced on (click “expand”):

    Omar gave a speech to the Council on American Islamic Relations, last month. Her focus was on the importance of protecting American civil liberties. The speech didn’t really get picked up at the time. But then, last Monday, the conservative website, The Daily Caller – co-founded by Tucker Carlson – picked up on Omar's reference to the 9/11 hijackers. She said, quote, “some people did something” while arguing that all Muslims should not be punished for the action of a crazy few.
