Stelter calls Mediaite post on SOTU ratings “hit job leaked by a rival network”

Jake Tapper’s debut on State of the Union put him in fourth place in the demo at 9am (second in total viewers), but it also put him first in the demo at noon (second in total viewers then, too).

Mediaite was first to report on the ratings of Tapper’s debut.

CNN’s media correspondent, Brian Stelter, wasn’t happy with Mediaite’s assessment of the show’s debut ratings, calling it a “hit job leaked by a rival network” – meaning a rival was attempting to lessen Tapper’s debut. 9am wasn’t a bright spot, but the noon repeat definitely was a win for SOTU.

Tapper acknowledged his show’s noon success in a tweet:

    Stelter seems much more suited for print media than cable news media. He simply lacks any form of on-camera charisma. I want to like him but also find myself turning the channel as soon as he opens his mouth. He has way too serious a facade. Whenever he talks about anything the set seems to become as fun and lively as an IRS audit committee.
