Ex-CNN Host Brian Stelter Joins Harvard to Discuss ‘Threats to Democracy’

Ex-CNN Host Brian Stelter Joins Harvard to Discuss ‘Threats to Democracy’

Response on Twitter: “This is like OJ teaching a class on respecting women.”

The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School announced it is bringing on fired CNN host Brian Stelter as the Fall 2022 Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellow.

The fellowship, established in 2013, “brings high-profile figures at the forefront of media, politics, and public policy to Harvard’s Kennedy School to work with students, faculty, scholars and the public on important issues of the moment.”

The “important issues of the moment” seem to be “threats to democracy and the range of potential responses from the news media.”

Well, thank goodness we don’t live in a democracy! Thank goodness America is a republic!

Stelter appears to be the best person for this since he was among the first new CNN CEO Chris Licht fired in an attempt to make the network non-partisan. Licht also canceled Stelter’s show Reliable Sources.

The show was anything but reliable because it spent every Sunday attacking the right and then-President Donald Trump.

Who could forget Stelter fawning over Michael Avenatti?

Dead: “And looking ahead to 2020, one reason I’m taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news.”

Then Stelter didn’t challenge a guest who claimed former President Donald Trump “may be responsible for many more million deaths” than Mao, Hitler, and Stalin.

Trump critic Michael Wolff chastised Stelter during an appearance:

“I don’t want you to think that what I said at that point was in any way inauthentic,” he continued. “I think the media has done a terrible job on this. I think you yourself — you’re a nice guy, you know, you’re full of sanctimony. You become one of the parts of the problem of the media.”

“You come on here and you have a monopoly on truth, you know exactly how things are supposed to be done. You are why — one of the reasons — people can’t stand the media,” he added.

The reactions are priceless.

HE would be a threat to democracy.

Its clear that peddling “democracy” is a mainline leftist strategy for the midterms.

“My people perish for a lack of knowledge”

    It may all about preventing MAGA Republicans from becoming electors in the states. They want to label all Trump ‘supporters as insurrectionists. The 14th amendment bans anyone who has participated in insurrection or rebellion from becoming a state member of the electoral college. Democrats favor a national popular vote ‘democracy’ over the electoral college.

The democratic/dictatorial duality. Thank God, Nature, and our nation’s founders, that we live in a republic with a constitution that respects individual rights and mitigates authoritarian progress through consensus and mandate.

    So…just woke up from the 1950’s? I agree that what you said was once the working model for the country but at 31 trillion in debt and fellow citizens languishing in DC dungeons… not so much. Forget MAGA… just “Make America Again”.

More evidence of why progressives become stupid, being educated by the likes of Stelter.

This is a session on threats to the deep state BY democracy, with the labels turned around.

The Fake New Potato™ fails upward yet again.

CNN to Harvard. A lateral move.

Their ” Democracy’ means their fake %51 to run all over the rest of the country with a iron fist

I am now getting “Live Updates” about a dead Queen. Film at 11, I guess.

I am so happy I can rely on these people.

He just makes me want to ralf. Haaavaard can haave him.

Harvard is already becoming a joke and self-made caricature of a university.

I suggest Harvard create an entire department for fired CNN ‘journalists’.

Hopefully they can soon add Lemon, Acosta, Trapper, and a couple dozen others.

    “They say percentage-wise it’s more difficult getting into Clown College than Harvard Law School,” says Philip Karp-Briggs, a 1988 graduate.”

    Hahvahd shot themselves in the foot by practicing anti Asian racist admission policies, but this is basically “taking two in the hat” as far as their reputation goes.

He’ll be teaching at a place he couldn’t imagine of being a student at.

Harvard continues to beclown itself.

    Oh, I think they beshat themselves with this one…

    At least Dukakis did something (although not very well).

Another reason (number 685?), of why I would never hire anyone who graduated from Harvard.

It is long past time to end the tax-exempt status of this university, and all of them.
