Michael Wolff To CNN's Brian Stelter: "You Are One Of The Reasons People Can't Stand The Media"


Book salesman Michael Wolff joined CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday to discuss the host's performance over the past five years.

MICHAEL WOLFF: I think the media has done a terrible job on this. I think you yourself, while you're a nice guy, you're full of sanctimony. You've become one of the problems of the media. You come on here and you have a monopoly on truth. You know exactly how things are supposed to be done. You know, you are why -- one of the reasons people can't stand the media. I'm sorry.

BRIAN STELTER: You're cracking me up.

MICHAEL WOLFF: It's your fault.

BRIAN STELTER: So what should I do differently, Michael?

MICHAEL WOLFF: You know, don't talk so much. Listen more. You know, people have genuine problems with the media. The media doesn't get the story right. The media exists in its own bubble.

BRIAN STELTER: That's true, I agree.

MICHAEL WOLFF: You know, you've got to stop -- I mean that last segment that I just had to listen to, of all of the people saying the same old stuff. Also, you're incredibly repetitive. It's week after week. You're the flip side of Donald Trump. You know, "fake news" and you say "virtuous news." You know, there's --

BRIAN STELTER: No, we just figure out what is real. I'm listening.

MICHAEL WOLFF: Well, figuring out -- yeah, figuring out what is real is not so -- is not so easy. And most people don't want to turn to Brian Stelter to tell us what's real. I'm sorry.

BRIAN STELTER: Well, then why did you bother coming on CNN a few times this week?

MICHAEL WOLFF: You know, I'm a book salesman.

BRIAN STELTER: Let's do this again in four years.
