Brian Stelter: Hoax

September 24, 2020

In This Episode:

Clay is joined by CNN’s Brian Stelter to discuss the state of journalism in 2020 and whether there’s still hope for objectivity.  Is there anything to stop the networks from abandoning facts for clicks?  Or are we doomed to follow the algorithms into conflict and chaos?


Moderator Clay Aiken has sold 6 million albums, authored a New York Times bestseller, and ran for Congress in North Carolina in 2014.


Brian Stelter is the chief media correspondent for CNN Worldwide and anchor of Reliable Sources, which examines the world’s top media stories every Sunday. Prior to joining CNN in 2013, Stelter was a media reporter at The New York Times. His first book, the New York Times bestseller Top of the Morning, inspired the Apple TV+ drama The Morning Show, where Stelter is a consulting producer on the series. He is also the executive producer of the HBO documentary After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News. His newest book out now from One Signal/Atria Books, is entitled Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth.
