CNN's Brian Stelter reacts to Shep Smith resignation: “There isn't room for truth telling on a channel like Fox” Written by Media Matters Staff Published 10/11/19 8:28 PM EDT Video file Citation From the October 11 edition of CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront: BRIAN STELTER: He is one of the only news anchors left on Fox and he left because he couldn't take it anymore. Sources tell me that he was simply appalled by some of the opinion hosts' comments. He felt that he had been marginalized, there wasn't room for him anymore. And this is not just the end of an era for Fox. It's a sign of what's happening to our country, that there isn't room for truth telling on a channel like Fox.
