It goes on to say, “As a Walter Shorenstein Fellow, Stelter will convene a series of discussions on threats to democracy and the range of possible news media responses.”

A spokesman for the network said Fox News Digital in August “CNN will end its ‘Reliable Sources’ program on Sunday, August 21.”
“As a result, Brian Stelter will leave the company. We value his contributions to the network and wish him well in his new endeavors,” they added.
He tweeted at the time: “I loved anchoring [Reliable Sources]. It has been a rare privilege to headline a weekly show that focuses on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential.”

During his closing monologue on Reliable Sources, Stelter said, “This show is being canceled. But there will be so many more. We need space for media criticism, debate and discussion – and we will.”
“So much of the media ecosystem in 2022 is garbage, but so much of it is spectacular. The hard part is separating the treasure from the trash,” he continued.
Finally, he said, “CNN has to stay strong … I’m going to stand up for it. I want CNN to be strong. I believe America needs CNN to be strong. I believe the free world needs CNN to be strong.”
