Former CNN host Brian Stelter has been named the Harvard Fall 2022 Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellow.
Stelter will lead discussions on the fate of democracy and the state of the news 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,” Harvard said.
It is reported that about 6% of Harvard students have conservative values, while only about 9% of CNN viewers lean Right.
Harvard also added the former Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio fellowship at the Harvard Institute of Politics (IOP).
Stelter’s commitment to train students to destroy threats against democracy is limited to the fall.

“Fox & Friends” co-host Pete Hegseth graduated from Harvard and mailed his degree back. He spoke to OutKick about the lack of independence that students have at an Ivy League university:
“It’s almost as if every bad idea is laundered in these Ivy League institutions. . You’re not taught to think freely, you’re not tolerated to think freely in these places. You are told there’s one view, follow your orthodoxy, and you will get your degree which will open every door for you for the rest of your life. But you must obey.
“[Trump] talks about the media as the enemy of the people. That’s part of what the president has done so well. He has ripped open the conversation and pulled back the curtain to reveal that we’re being lied to by a lot of these elites that are more than prepared to sell America down the river. He is right. But the Ivy League is the enemy of the people, too.”.
Harvard formulated a plan, with Stelter’s help, to train students to destroy threats against democracy. That’s invaluable information, but may be available temporarily.
Brian Stelter is only committed to the fall as he continues to plot his next media move. And he’s likely to have a list of options, across various mediums.
Thus, students planning to fight right-wing extremists with their Harvard degrees best act swiftly. Democracy is at stake.
