Untold story of Tucker Carlson's ouster
Previewing "Network of Lies"
This week Vanity Fair published the first sneak peek at my book “Network of Lies,” chock full of scoops about Tucker Carlson and his shock firing by Fox News. Carlson (who I have known for two decades) must not have liked it, because he told Insider that I'm a "sad little moron" who "knows nothing." Well, I know that he will want to read the rest of the book.
“Network of Lies” comes out in two weeks, and it’s about so much more than a single cable host. It’s about the Trump indictments; the Big Lie; the January 6 attack; the Dominion case; the radicalization of the GOP; and Fox's role in all of it.
Would you do me a favor and preorder a copy now if you haven't already? Preorders are invaluable to authors and publishers. Check it out on Amazon, B&N, or Bookshop; or order a signed/personalized copy through WORDS in Maplewood, NJ. Thank you!

I would have written this email yesterday, but Halloween was an all-day extravaganza for the Stelters, between class parties and parades for Sunny and Story; several hours of trick or treating; and Jamie's Halloween parade broadcast on NY1. Sunny was Skater Barbie and Story was Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle:
Now I’m going to go hide their remaining Halloween candy.
