    joining Vanity Fair as a special correspondent to cover Fox News’ trial against Dominion Voting Systems. Stelter will write a weekly column and host a special version of Vanity Fair’s “Inside the Hive” podcast about the case, CNN’s Oliver Darcy reported. Stelter confirmed the news Monday and teased more details about his temporary role.

  • Brian Stelter defends 2020 media coverage of Hunter Biden laptop story: We never labeled it 'disinformation' (crimes still not mentioned)

    Former CNN host Brian Stelter defended the media's coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop story that was suppressed in the final weeks of the 2020 presidential election. **SNIP** Krakauer surmised that the media was largely hesitant to put a spotlight on the laptop because of the "scars" from 2016 when so much coverage was dedicated to Hillary Clinton's email scandal, which played a major role in her ultimate defeat against Donald Trump. "It's one thing to try to tiptoe into the story and it's another to treat it as if it's this toxic material that completely spins the public in...

    "Fired CNN talking head Brian Stelter landed a fellowship at Harvard, the former host of the since-canceled “Reliable Sources” said Monday. Stelter broke the news on social media that he’ll be joining the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School this fall. “Personal news: I’m joining the @ShorensteinCtr at Harvard Kennedy School,” Stelter tweeted. “This fall I’ll be the Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellow, convening discussions, some of which will be live-streamed. Grateful to @nancygibbs and her team for the home!” According to Harvard, Stelter “will convene a series of discussions about threats to...

    It was a challenging task, but an esteemed panel of NewsBusters editors led by MRC President L.Brent Bozell and MRC’s Vice President for Research and Publications Brent Baker, boiled down all the biased outbursts from lefty hack hosts, anchors, reporters and pundits in 2022 and declared a winner. This year the winner is Don Lemon! The CNN host won for his laugh-out-loud response to CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert’s silly inquiry that “you guys aren’t allowed to be liberal anymore” under new CNN CEO Chris Licht’s leadership. To which Lemon absurdly responded: “I don’t think we ever were liberal.”...

Stelter will serve as a Media and Democracy Fellow and convene a series of discussions about what the center described as “threats to democracy and the range of potential responses from the news media.” “These discussions with media leaders, policy makers, politicians, and Kennedy School students, fellows, and faculty will help deepen public and scholarly understanding about the current state of the information ecosystem and its impacts on democratic governance,” the school said in an announcement.

    Outgoing CNN anchor Brian Stelter started the final episode of “Reliable Sources” on Sunday by saying that the show was a small but mighty “one-of-a-kind.” Stelter said, “One of the biggest media stories of the week is right here. It’s the end of this show. CNN has canceled ‘Reliable Sources.’ Yes, the longest-running program on the network. I have a lot of thoughts about it but am going to save those for later this hour. As most of you know, CNN has a new owner. Warner Brothers Discovery is making big changes across the company. And there’s going to be...

    CNN media reporter Brian Stelter said Sunday on his show “Reliable Sources” that his network faces a “legal mess” from executives Jeff Zucker, Allison Gollust, and anchor Chris Cuomo’s exits. Stelter said, “When CNN President Jeff Zucker abruptly resigned this month, people wondered if another shoe was going to drop. Zucker tied his exit to his failure to disclose a romantic relationship with Allison Gollust But was there more to the story? A few days ago, Gollust also resigned, and now there are stories about the reasons why. It seems the second shoe was landed. Well-placed sources have told me...

    CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter said Friday on “Newsroom” that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) begging for forgiveness from Tucker Carlson is evidence the Fox News host is the new Donald Trump. Stelter said, “Cruz folded like a paper airplane. I think what it shows is the Republican messaging about being tough on crime, which is something that’s gone back decades that Cruz was trying to lean into, has come up against this denial of the January 6 crime. So you have Tucker Carlson trying to take a position that what we saw with our own eyes didn’t really happen....

    On Sunday, CNN “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter weighed in on how the media should cover the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus. Stelter lamented that Fox News Channel pundits have been “making jokes” that there would be a new variant every two years ahead of elections to help the Democrats. He described it as “craziness” that will get “worse and worse.”

    The Spectator ^ | 7 June 2021 | Stephen L Miller
    What exactly are the qualifications to host a show on CNN? The most obvious seems to be an astonishing lack of professional shame — and I’m not even talking about the circus act Chris Cuomo’s been doing for the past year. Reliable Sources is the most ironically named show in all of cable news, given that the guest roster regularly includes Dan Rather. On this Sunday’s episode, host Brian Stelter partook in a highly embarrassing act of professional self-debasement, in a segment in which he offered schoolgirl giggles and petty star-gazing over White House press secretary Jen Psaki. Stelter acted...

    NN’s struggling media program "Reliable Sources" with Brian Stelter hit another low on Sunday with its smallest audience of 2021 as the liberal program has now failed to crack the one-million viewer plateau for five consecutive weeks. Stelter’s program averaged only 810,000 total viewers and a dismal 163,000 among the key demographic of adults age 25-54 on May 2, for its worst performance of the year in both categories. To make matters worse for Stelter, his own show performed better last week when replacement host John Avlon filled in. The Avlon-hosted edition of "Reliable Sources" on April 25 averaged 907,000...

He applauded it as “breathtaking” and “extraordinary” in its “honesty” for tackling the scope of the author’s confessed addiction to crack-cocaine and alcohol.

    Brian Stelter on Friday falsely claimed Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop “wasn’t” labeled Russian disinformation by the establishment media after he continually furthered the false narrative as a CNN anchor. Stelter, who was ousted by CNN and hired by Harvard, was among the numerous media personalities that pushed the false narrative for months. At least 15 media personalities claimed Hunter’s laptop was likely Russian propaganda before New York Times admitted it was authentic in 2022, directly contradicting many in the Democrat-allied media. “U.S. authorities are seeing if those emails we just talked about are connected to an ongoing Russian disinformation effort,”...

    On Tuesday, disgraced former CNN anchor Brian Stelter took to the stage at the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting to chair a panel on "disinformation." The panelists claimed that the spread of fake news was among the greatest threats currently facing society, and praised Europe for its strict internet regulations. "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening here today in Davos?" Stelter asked the panel, which included the New York Times' Arthur Gregg Sulzberger, European Commission VP Věra Jourová, Rep. Seth Moulton, and Internews CEO Jeanne Bourgault. "If you look at this question of disinformation," Sulzberger...

    Tom Jones at the Florida-based Poynter Institute -- touted by Johnny Dollar as a "Stelter press agent" -- has penned a deeply disturbed piece headlined "CNN ‘hewing toward the center’ is not necessarily good for our democracy: Pushing for fairness and completeness in journalism is never a bad idea. But presenting 'both sides' sometimes can be." Jones was attempting to shame the Chicago Tribune for an editorial touting this purported CNN move to the center -- which sorely lacks evidence so far, other than dismissing a few flagrantly opinionated staffers like Stelter and John Harwood. Jones sounds like a press...

    Former Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf debates the existence of measurable levels of election fraud with CNN's Jim Acosta. "Any type of election fraud should be addressed," Wolf said. "I don't think we should say there was just a little bit of fraud, so it is OK." "There is fraud in our election system. If people don't acknowledge that, that becomes part of the problem," Wolf said. Acosta replied: "You were the former acting secretary of homeland security and you’re spreading doubt and fear about our election process."

    It didn’t take long for the job offers to start rolling in for Brian Stelter – and those were some of the better attempted conservative Twitter dunks on the “Reliable Sources” host the day his ouster from CNN was announced. Greg Gutfeld, host and ringleader of Fox News’ after-dark scrum “Gutfeld!,” tweeted mere minutes following the news break Thursday, and kept it simple: “Yo @brianstelter – my show is hiring,” said the host of what is now the highest-rated show in late night.
