(TWITCHY) – At a National Press Club event, Ted Koppel and Brian Stelter were among the panelists, and Koppel, the journalist and 25-year anchor of ABC News' "Nightline" program, offered up a reality check for the CNN host about Donald Trump.
Video: To consternation of @BrianStelter, Ted Koppel contended during 10/1 Kalb Report @PressClubDC: "You would be lost without @realDonaldTrump. CNN's ratings would be in the toilet without Trump." Stelter: "Ted, you know that's not true. You're playing for laughs." #NPCLive pic.twitter.com/XGZl9yNzqh – Brent Baker (@BrentHBaker) October 3, 2018
Stelter didn't appear to agree with his media colleague.
