Harvard University confirmed this week the hiring of failed CNN anchor Brian Stelter to lecture America’s youth about the “dangers to Democracy” posed by some politicians and the 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.

“Brian Stelter is a nationally recognized media reporter and expert on the state of journalism and its wide-reaching implications for society and governance. Until August 2022 he was the anchor of ‘Reliable Sources,’ which examined the week’s top media stories every Sunday on CNN, and the chief media correspondent for CNN Worldwide,” adds the University.


“Personal news: I’m joining the @ShorensteinCtr at Harvard Kennedy School. 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!” confirmed Stelter on Twitter.
