Digimentors productions include #NYTReadalong, a weekly program with host Sree Sreenivasan and expert guests across industries, and Social Media Weekend, a conference that brings together some of the best and brightest to share their advice.

April 16, 2023: Brian Stelter (Author / Journalist)
Our guest this week on Sree's Sunday #NYTReadalong was worth the wait: Brian Stelter. We’ll ask him about his next book, “Network of Lies: The Epic Saga of Fox News, Donald Trump, and the Battle for American Democracy,” the Dominion Voting Systems / Fox News trial starting Monday and his time working at CNN and The New York Times.
Brian is the New York Times bestselling author of three books: Top of the Morning, Hoax, and Network of Lies. “Network of Lies” is billed as a sequel of sorts to Stelter’s 2020 book “Hoax,” which offered a deep look behind the mechanics of how Fox News Channel produces its news coverage and opinion programming. Stelter’s new book proposes to examine how Fox News proceeded after the election of President Joe Biden and how it oriented itself after President Donald Trump left office. The book is scheduled to debut in November of 2023.
Previously, Brian was a media reporter at The New York Times, the chief media correspondent for CNN Worldwide, and the anchor of Reliable Sources. He is currently a special correspondent for Vanity Fair and a Walter Shorenstein Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy.
