'There was no remorse whatsoever':


A University of Chicago student who called out CNN analyst Brian Stelter on disinformation in viral back-and-forth during a forum is speaking out about the now-viral back-and-forth.

Christopher Phillips told Fox News' Tucker Carlson about how he had asked the left-wing pundit about his ongoing criticisms of Fox News.

The freshman added that he called out CNN for spreading disinformation about the Trump-Russia probe, Nicholas Sandmann, and 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett

At one point, Stelter brushed off the college student's question while referencing a 'right-wing narrative.' 

'The way I've always been is to search for truth and ask questions to sift through the lies and find out what's really going on,' said Phillips, a writer for one of the school's student publications. 

Phillip's noted how he had encountered several 'legacy media employees' at the disinformation-themed forum, who had said they spent their careers accusing other news outlets and politicians of spreading the same disinformation they too are often guilty of.  

'Brian Stelter talks for 30 minutes about how Fox News is this huge purveyor of disinformation. They're the enemy of the people,' Phillip's told Tucker Carlson.
