CNN’s Brian Stelter is all about using anonymous sources in his “stories.”

But in an ironic twist, the “anonymous sources” technique is coming back to bite him, through his newscaster wife.

Anonymous sources have been speaking to New York Magazine and finking out bullying that is allegedly going on at NY1 where anchor Jamie Stelter works. The piece is “Inside the Petty, Vindictive, Career-Ruining Infighting at NY1”

“A lot of people don’t like working with Jamie,” an anonymous staffer told Moscatello while another claimed Stelter would openly complain about everything from how stylists did her hair to what staffers wore.

“People would avoid her,” a third anonymous source told Moscatello.

Stelter was also accused of making “snide comments” about then–fellow traffic reporter Alyse Zwick and allegedly having “ostracized” a Black female colleague.

Ten of the whistleblowers were particularly unhappy with the way that the three other anchors would disparage black weather anchor Stacy Ann Gooden. Gooden quit when HR didn’t solve the problem, according to the report.

What surprised me about the report was frankly that he had a wife because I didn’t think he had a personality that anyone could tolerate. But then it’s easy to believe that she might be snide and disparaging of colleagues, given how snide and disparaging he is. It’s also
