In the above video, "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts sits down with Brian Stelter to discuss her cancer recovery, her relationship and "GMA's" success.
On "GMA" no longer being the underdog now that it's consistently winning in the A.M. ratings race: "'When you strut, you stumble' - we're not going around saying we're number one. We're doing exactly the same thing as we have done all along, from the moment I have gotten here, and that's trying to produce the best show that we possibly can. And it's very gratifying that the public is responding and... making us number one. So by no means are we going around thinking we're top dog."
On the impact of her decision last December to start speaking publicly about her girlfriend Amber: "So many people have come up to me... and said that they can now have a conversation with their parents... I've been so busy fighting for my life that I didn't even think about that aspect of the story, but I'm very grateful that it is creating dialogue for families."
On seeking therapy: "I've been doing a lot more work lately with cancer survivorship and the millions of people who survived cancer after going through a lot of collateral damage with the medication and other things that have saved our lives, and I'm not ashamed to say that I needed help. I need to seek a therapist and do from time to time, just because of the psyche. Because when you not once but twice had been at death's door, you're still standing, you go through this guilt of 'Why am I still here?' ... So it is something that I think is very important. It's still a teachable moment for people."

Above: Brian Stelter on the troubling case of a CNN editor who was fired after evidence of plagiarism was discovered in about 50 of her stories.
Here's what Stelter said:
You would think, in this age of Google, that no reporter would ever dare to steal sentences from other sources!
But I'm sorry to say it recently happened here at CNN. On Friday morning, the editors in charge of CNN's Web site published this very unusual editor's note about a shocking case of plagiarism. They said that one of the news editors they employed in London named Marie-Louise Gumuchian used other writers' words without attribution in 50 stories, and maybe more. The investigation is going.
CNN terminated her when it found out. And now the place where she previously worked, Reuters, says it is also reviewing her stories from back then, looking for more possible instances of plagiarism.
CNN only discovered the plagiarism during routine editing of one of her stories. Then searches turned up more and more examples. Now all the stories have been corrected and some have been deleted altogether.
You know, writers love to tangle with their editors - I do it on a near-daily basis! - but this case, this very rare case, shows how important editors are to the process. What an outrageous story.
