Brian Stelter’s book about Fox News, “Network of Lies,” has not sold well, with less than 4,000 copies sold in its first week.
The book delves into Trump’s election fraud claims and Fox News’ role in spreading the allegations.
Despite its poor sales, it has still managed to outsell Michael Wolff’s anti-Fox book. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)
Stelter was fired by CNN in August 2022.

“In Network of Lies, New York Times bestselling author Brian Stelter answers these questions by weaving together private texts, unpublished emails, depositions, and other primary sources to tell the chilling story of Trump’s alleged conspiracy to steal the 2020 election, and the right-wing media’s mission to put him back in office in 2024,” the book’s summary reads.
“Trump couldn’t have convinced millions of Americans of the Big Lie without Fox News,” it continues.
“From the moment Joe Biden became president-elect in 2020, Fox hosts fueled a fire of misinformation and violence by spreading Trump’s tales of election fraud and suppressing the truth. Come January, Sean Hannity insisted Trump needed to stop listening to ‘crazy people’ who swore he could stay in power, but it was too late—thousands of Trump’s deluded followers had stormed the Capitol and Trump operatives had breached Dominion Voting Systems’ voting machines in Georgia.”
