CNN's ironically titled show "Reliable Sources" with Brian Stelter continues its spectacular decline in ratings, dropping 53 percent in viewership since January 2021.

During May, Stelter's show which is often jam-packed with left-wing pundits complaining about Fox News and "disinformation", averaged a paltry 863,000 viewers in May. That's down 9 percent from the previous month of April, according to Fox News.

In February, Stelter yielded 1.3 million viewers, 1.02 million in March, and 917,000 in April.

The purported mandate of Stelter's show is to report on the media landscape in America and bring a sense of fairness and "fact checking" to the discourse.

"Reliable Sources" has been roundly mocked and criticized in the media eco-system for its extreme left-leaning bias and inability to move on from Never-Trump talking points.

Stelter tends to focus on his much more successful counterparts at Fox News like Tucker Carlson. Stelter often complains about Carlson's high ratings and smears him and his viewers as "white supremacists."

Stelter recently made headlines when his replacement host John Avlon beat his ratings on his own show in early May.
