A book, a podcast and a column
Everyone on this email list knows all about Dominion v. Fox. I won’t waste your time with any throat-clearing. I just want to share where you can find my trial coverage. Plus: A small request for help with a new book project.
I have joined Vanity Fair as a special correspondent for the duration of the trial. The two assignments: Writing a weekly column and hosting a special edition of VF’s “Inside the Hive” podcast. New episodes of “Fox on Trial” will drop on Thursdays, around the same time as the column. Check out the debut pod, with guest Gabriel Sherman, right here.
Dominion v. Fox cries out for a nonfiction examination, so that's what I am writing : A new book. It will be called "Network of Lies" and it will pick up where "Hoax" ended in 2020. I’m grateful to Julia Cheiffetz and her team at One Signal, part of Simon & Schuster, for supporting this project. It’s never too early to pre-order 😉
We’re aiming to publish this book in November, so I could use your input. What aspects of the story about Fox, the Big Lie and the GOP have been underreported or underrated in your view? What should I make sure to include? Who should I talk to? Reply and let me know.
Like many other media reporters, I’m gearing up for trial coverage. I was on the Apple News In Conversation podcast on Friday to preview the high stakes of the case. I’m about to join the CBC’s prime time newscast via Zoom. And I'll be popping up on some U.S. TV programs later in the week.
Fox is far from the only story on the media beat. For Slate, I wrote about a very 2023 sensation: “The more you scroll, the less you know.” For Air Mail, I profiled The Lever founder David Sirota. And I have a newsy cover story for Los Angeles magazine coming out later this month.
Last but not least, if you want to see me getting pelted with dodgeballs by a pack of 3 and 4 year olds at a birthday party, well, that’s what my Instagram page is for. My wife thinks I should rename it my “Fun Dad” page.
Speaking of my kiddos – In Kindergarten, Sunny is learning about the difference between FACTS and OPINIONS. I introduced a third option: LIES. She already has it all down pat. Too bad she’s a tad too young to serve on the jury in Wilmington.
All the best,
