Beginning my book tour for "Network of Lies"
The criminal trials of Donald Trump are also a trial for the nation he once led. We are undergoing a stress test of American democracy, the rule of law, and the very notion of a shared political reality. Can we achieve accountability for assaults on democracy? What forms can accountability take?
That's what my new book "Network of Lies" is about. (I promise not to spam you about it every day!) But I want to share a few newsy parts before the weekend begins.
>> MSNBC's Alex Wagner kick-started the book tour on Thursday and asked me about Donald Trump, Sean Hannity, Dominion, and Smartmatic. Here's the segment.
>> MSNBC viewers preordered the book in such huge numbers that it's now in the top 20 on Amazon's new releases chart — and in the top 100 of all books globally. Thank you!
>> Tonight I'll be back on CNN, visiting "The Source with Kaitlan Collins," to discuss the book and whatever else she wants 😊
>> The book hits stores on Tuesday. If you haven't reserved a copy yet, please do. For a signed or personalized copy, order through WORDS Bookstore in Maplewood, NJ. I was there signing dozens of preordered books earlier this week, and I'll be back again soon.
>> On this week's episode of "Inside the Hive," I caught up with two of Dominion's lawyers, both of whom were key on-the-record sources for the book. "Dominion's Fox News case was just the beginning..."
>> In CNN's Reliable Sources newsletter (my favorite!), Oliver Darcy highlighted some of the book's scoops about Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch.
>> Rolling Stone published an excerpt about Fox's prime time stars and what they were secretly telling each other during the 2020 election.
In other news... "The Morning Show" season three finale is now streaming on Apple TV+, and showrunner Charlotte Stoudt was very kind to mention my role in her interviews. We're working on season four now.
