Former CNN talking head Brian Stelter already has a new job. He is heading to Harvard.
The puffy media ‘expert’ will be talking to students about threats to democracy, among othr things.
In other words, he is just going to continue doing his left wing show in a classroom instead of on CNN.
FOX News reports:
Former CNN host Brian Stelter gets Harvard fellowship discussing ‘threats to democracy’
Brian Stelter, who was dumped by CNN last month, has found a new gig discussing “threats to democracy” and how the press can respond.
Stelter has been named a Harvard Kennedy School’s Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellowship, and he will work with both students and faculty during the Fall of 2022.
“As the Walter Shorenstein Fellow, Stelter will convene a series of discussions about 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 noted.
Harvard Kennedy School, which is the public policy school within the prestigious university, noted in its announcement that Stelter was the anchor of “Reliable Sources” until August 2022, but didn’t make any note of why he left the network.
Stelter’s show was canceled, and he was shown the door as new CNN CEO Chris Licht has put an emphasis on “news,” as opposed to the liberal opinion programming that the network became known for under Jeff Zucker’s management, particularly during the Trump administration.
Is Harvard trying to destry their brand?
There is absolutely no reason for Harvard to give this guy a fellowship, other than to attempt to use its status to launder his reputation.
Absolutely disgraceful. https://t.co/ktQ0VFDdmB
