CNN's go-to media correspondent Brian Stelter faced an avalanche of criticism for dodging questions surrounding the ethical scandals that have plagued his network in recent weeks.
CNN has been rocked with a series of negative headlines, including anchor Jake Tapper getting caught urging a popular Republican not to challenge an incumbent Democrat for a House seat; CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker offering advice to President Trump’s former lawyer prior to the 2016 election; and the ongoing controversy surrounding the network’s coverage of New York Gov.Andrew Cuomo, whose brother Chris Cuomo is a primetime host on the network.
Stelter is regularly accused of overlooking controversies related to his network, but was pressed on recent issues by “The View” co-host Meghan McCain.
CNN’S JAKE TAPPER URGED REPUBLICAN SEAN PARNELL NOT TO RUN AGAINST DEMOCRAT REP. CONOR LAMB
“There are some ethical questions that are being thrown around about CNN lately,” McCain said on Wednesday. “There is 2016 audio of your president Jeff Zucker offering debate advice to President Trump that was released, Jake Tapper was recently caught, allegedly, trying to influence a congressional election and I had serious problems with the way Chris Cuomo has a recurring primetime, sort of comic routine with his brother instead of asking about policies that were literally sending my friend Janice Dean’s relatives to die in nursing homes. So, with the criticism of CNN, do you believe that this is acceptable?”
Stelter responded that McCain should “write a book” because she was able to rattle off so many negative CNN storylines before essentially dismissing the question.

“A lot of them are cherry-picked... but look, I’m not a spokesperson for CNN, it’s not for me to comment on these,” Stelter said.
"Here is what I do think is sad, though. I think it’s sad that private conversations get leaked out, get distorted and then, you know, they become polarized and weaponized,” Stelter continued. “That’s the environment we’re in and that’s sad. You know, if our text messages or if my phone calls with friends were suddenly taken out of context and distorted... let me put it this way, I think the Trump age has ruined a lot of friendships. I think that’s really sad.”
CNN HEAD ZUCKER OFFERED TRUMP DEBATE ADVICE, FLOATED 'WEEKLY SHOW,' LEAKED 2016 COHEN CALL REVEALS
Stelter, who is often referred to as the media's "hall monitor," was torn to pieces on social media for completely dodging McCain's question.
"McCain’s question was right and Brian dodging as the CNN media reporter was truly remarkably lame," former CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien reacted.
"@brianstelter didn’t deny any of it. He’s mad that what they say in private was made public. This is akin to asking the SF hair salon owner for an apology because she didn’t keep Nancy’s secret," former acting DNI Ric Grenell wrote, invoking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's controversial trip to the salon, which she blamed the salon owner for "setting her up."
CNN'S CHRIS CUOMO DOES PROP COMEDY WITH NY GOV. ANDREW CUOMO, FAILS TO ASK ABOUT NURSING-HOME CONTROVERSY
"'‘How dare you 'weaponize' the fact that one of my networks anchors had his governor brother on to gab about their childhood when his administration was sending people to die in nursing homes’ is quite a take, Brian," Washington Examiner deputy editor Grant Addison told the CNN host.
"Brian deflects answering about Jeff Zucker & Trump and instead blames someone for the tapes for leaking out.. You know, like a journalist naturally would," conservative commentator Stephen Miller quipped.
Stelter, who is a staunch defender of the media, had little to say about the controversies that have dogged his colleagues.
"Tucker Carlson Tonight" obtained audio records of conversations former Trump attorney Michael Cohen had with Stelter's boss Jeff Zucker, who offered the then-candidate Trump advice at the forthcoming primary debate CNN was hosting and even floated a "weekly" show for the president to appear on after the election in addition conversations with CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who is heard rehearsing an interview with Cohen for a planned appearance on the network that ultimately never took place.
Cuomo was previously criticized for the softball interviews he held with his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as the top Democrat was facing intense scrutiny over his state's nursing home policy that is linking do thousands of coronavirus-related deaths. The siblings even performed prop comedy together before the governor was even asked about the growing nursing home controversy.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper urged GOP congressional candidate Sean Parnell to run in a "safer R district" instead of running against the incumbent Democrat, Pennsylvania Rep. Conor Lamb. After it was initially reported by Breitbart, Tapper denied such allegations to former acting DNI Grenell. The anchor was further criticized for lying to Grenell after Fox News obtained the direct message he had sent to Parnell back in November 2019.
Stelter did, however, admit that it was "probably a mistake" for his network to air a graphic that read "fiery but mostly peaceful protests" while showing fires raging in Kenosha when he was confronted by a CSPAN caller earlier this month.

How to stream Liga MX
To stream Liga MX, you’ll need a mix of several Spanish-language and English-language channels to get everything. Read on for more on one of the world’s most entertaining soccer leagues.
- Liga MX kicked off its 2020 Apertura season July 24.
- The 2020 Apertura season is officially being called Torneo Guardianes 2020 to honor healthcare workers in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
- The end-of-season Liguilla (playoffs) will feature 12 teams rather than the customary eight.
- Liga MX is covered by a range of networks, including Telemundo, which recently picked up the home broadcast rights for Chivas.
- In 2020, FS1 will carry select matches with English-language broadcasts.

TUDN and Univision
The Liga MX name was created for the 2012-13 season but is merely a rebrand of the top-flight Mexican league that started in 1943. Eighteen teams compete each season in a calendar comparable to European club teams, but split each season into two halves: the Apertura (opening), which goes from mid-July to mid-December, and the Clausura, which goes from January to May. Each half-season lasts 19 weeks (with each team getting one bye week) and is then followed by a liguilla, a playoff involving the top eight teams from each half-season.Tigres Oficial/YouTube Liga MX Standings (following September 21 matches)

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices.

The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
Fubo is a soccer lover’s playland, and you’ll definitely be able to stream Liga MX with it. The Standard tier gets you FS1 and TUDN, plus Telemundo in some local markets, with Fox Deportes available with a sports add-on. ESPN Deportes is now online as part of August’s migration of Disney Media channels to Fubo.

You can stream Liga MX with FS1 and Telemundo on YouTube TV. (If there’s not a Telemundo in your market, YouTube TV will sub in the closest one—for instance, Austin viewers get Houston’s Telemundo stream.)
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages.

Its channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. Vidgo’s Social TV platform also adds to the fun.

FC Juarez, created in 2015, is the latest team to join. It took over the struggling Lobos BUAP franchise to join Liga MX.
But you’re also going to see a new name in Liga MX this year: Mazatlan FC. The Monarcas Morelia franchise moved to the seaside city and got a new badge and color scheme. Morelia got Club Atlético Morelia, a new second-division team, as a consolation prize.
Liga MX has some great rivalries going. El Super Clásico, the biggest ongoing rivalry in Mexican football, involves Mexico City-based Club América—nicknamed the Aguilas (Eagles), and CD Guadalajara, nicknamed Chivas (Goats). The two original members of Mexico’s top league have long histories of success that continue today: America won this season’s Apertura Liguilla and made the Clausura tournament, while Chivas won the 2018 CONCACAF Champions League featuring the top club teams in North America, Central America, and the Caribbean (including MLS teams). The teams also have rivalries closer to home: America shares a stadium (the legendary Azteca) and a keen rivalry with Cruz Azul, while Chivas have a crosstown competition with Atlas called El Clásico Tapatio.
Another prime rivalry involves two Monterrey teams: CF Monterrey and UANL Tigres. Called El Clásico Regio, it’s an intense competition that has produced champions of late; the teams faced off in the 2019 CONCACAF Champions League finals, won by Monterrey.
Other clubs with significant followings include Club Tijuana, a relatively new but successful franchise better known by their Xolos nickname); Pachuca, which launched in 1901 (making it one of the oldest club teams in the hemisphere); and Santos Laguna, a Torreon-based club that won the 2018 Clausura.Liga MX teams:
- Atletico San Luis
- Cruz Azul
- Santos Laguna
- Tigres UANL
- UNAM (Pumas)
Here’s a list of recent Apertura and Clausura champions, showing the competitive nature of the liguillas. While there’s not MLS-level parity in Liga MX, there aren’t a fixed number of teams that have a grip on the title, either.
- Apertura 2012: Tijuana
- Clausura 2013: América
- Apertura 2013: León
- Clausura 2014: León
- Apertura 2014: América
- Clausura 2015: Santos Laguna
- Apertura 2015: UANL Tigres
- Clausura 2016: Pachuca
- Apertura 2016: UANL Tigres
- Clausura 2017: Guadalajara
- Apertura 2017: UANL Tigres
- Clausura 2018: Santos Laguna
- Apertura 2018: América
- Clausura 2019: UANL Tigres
- Apertura 2019: Monterrey
- Clausura 2020: Season canceled (Cruz Azul led league prior to stoppage of play)
