CNN’s resident senior media hall monitor Brian Stelter is simultaneously his network’s most out-front cheerleader and their own worst enemy.

He’s praised CNN’s coverage of the Hunter Biden story yet at the same time has expressed agitation that the story is supposedly getting too much coverage at rival network Fox News.

Stelter also threw his sidekick Oliver Darcy under the bus earlier this month over a dust-up involving Fox News’ Bret Baier after favorably quoting Darcy’s comments on Baier extensively in a newsletter put out that same week.

The self-styled media expert also frequently complains about Fox News not obsessing over COVID case numbers in their programming (as though they don’t care about the pandemic) even though CNN has been known drop their pretense of caring about COVID victims a time or two in their “reporting” via stories that are either good news for Democrats or which somehow portray Joe Biden in the most flattering of lights.

Such was the case earlier today when Stelter tweeted out a screengrab of the electors casting their votes in the presidential election. He was quick to point out what he called “the difference” between his network and others like Fox News and MSNBC. “CNN is going from state capital to capital, showing electors vote, democracy in action — while the others are doing regular programming,” he tweeted, as though CNN was performing a public service by turning into a cable news version of C-SPAN:

The big problem with Stelter’s back-patting is that in both it and the story, gone was CNN’s COVID case and death count tracker, which they’ve left on their screens virtually non-stop over the last several months.

A number of Twitter users called him out for his double standards, including media watchers RoadMN and Newsbusters’ colleagues Tim Graham and Curtis Houck:

Houck then correctly pointed out that the vaccines, which CNN said for months we would not see until middle of next year, were a big story and worthy of a significant amount of coverage and that it was, ya know, possible to cover both stories at the same time and still be a good news network:

Predictably, Stelter didn’t like having his words thrown back at him:

Graham pushed back with the perfect translation for Stelter’s tweet. Houck swooped in later for the alley oop:

Bingo. That is classic Stelter right down to the core.
