After being laid off by his network for low ratings, Stelter has now been chosen by the famed Ivy League legacy institution to ‘convene a series of discussions about threats to democracy and the range of potential responses from the news media… ‘

Harvard University hired former CNN hosted Brian Stelter to lecture to students in the John F. Kennedy School of Government about “threats to democracy.”
“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 wrote in a statement, according to New Right Network.
The Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy picked Stelter to become the Fall semester’s esteemed 2022 Walter Shorenstein fellow.
The Shorenstein Center said that Stelter will “convene a series of discussions about threats to democracy and the range of potential responses from the news media.”
Another post said that Stelter will discuss “democracy and the role of the media in preserving it.”
The Shorenstein Center said the fellowship brings “distinguished veterans of public life for a short yet comprehensive stay at the Institute of Politics.” It described Stelter as a “nationally recognized media reporter and expert on the state of journalism.”Most Americans would not recognize Stelter, who regularly attracted only a few hundred thousand viewers each week, and most conservatives would not call him “distinguished” or an “expert.”
In August, CNN president Chris Licht forced Stelter to leave the network, and he cancelled his show, Reliable Sources, which Stelter hosted from 2013 to 2022.
(…) Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose tenure likewise ended in disgrace, taught about public service and leadership at Harvard.
These big names help keep up Harvard’s tuition rates, but Stelter and de Blasio likely cannot add much wisdom to a student’s education.
