Brian Stelter lands a new Vanity Fair gig AND signs book deal… to attack Fox News

When a person is on the right side of the Jacobin revolution currently underway in America today — as conservative scholar Victor Davis Hanson asserts — they always seem to land on their feet, especially if they are rabid Trump haters.

Take Brian Stelter, for example. After being booted from CNN of all places for the unwatchable fare he offered up, which often consisted of attacking Fox News, which regularly trounces Stelter’s now former network, Stelter has landed a new gig at Vanity Fair, where he will… attack Fox News.

That’s according to CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy, who reported that Stelter will join Vanity Fair as a special correspondent to “cover the Fox News-Dominion trial.”

Stelter confirmed the reporting in a tweet and noted that he will be writing a weekly column and host a special version of Vanity Fair’s “Inside the Hive” podcast about the case.

“As always, @oliverdarcy is right! I can confirm his news in tonight’s Reliable newsletter: ‘Brian Stelter is joining Vanity Fair as a special correspondent to cover the Fox News trial.’ It’s going to be a busy six-or-so weeks,” he tweeted, adding: “I’ll be writing weekly columns about Dominion v. Fox and hosting a special edition of VF’s ‘Inside the Hive’ podcast, called ‘Fox on Trial,’ with new episodes each Thursday until there’s a verdict. We taped the first episode today with a VIP guest Details soon!”

And if that’s not lucrative enough for the reliable Democratic foot soldier, Stelter just signed a deal with Simon & Schuster to release a follow-up to his 2020 book that targeted former President Donald Trump and Fox News.

The subject of the new book? Attacking Fox News.

“Network of Lies will begin where Hoax ended — on the precipice of the 2020 presidential election,” Stelter told Mediaite. “The recent revelations about Fox News and Donald Trump are nothing short of astonishing, with direct impacts on the next election, the First Amendment and our democratic values. This scandal cries out for a nonfiction examination.”

The irony of this coming from a former CNN employee being off the charts, of course — in a sane world, Joe Biden would have to list CNN coverage of the election as in-kind contributions.

Fox News mocked the former CNN host as “an outright caricature.”

“Brian Stelter’s lack of self-awareness after being fired from CNN for becoming an outright caricature is comical, but this is his least surprising move since telling Michael Avenatti he could be a presidential contender,” Fox News said in a statement.

As for Stelter’s other gig, conservative talk radio host and Fox News host Mark Levin tweeted: “Vanity Fair continues its journalistic decline.”
