Former CNN host Brian Stelter’s latest book, “Network of Lies,” sold only 3,807 copies in its first week, despite promotion from the author and Simon & Schuster.
The book has received mixed reviews, with some conservative outlets calling it a “tremendous failure.”
Stelter’s declining book sales reflect a diminishing market for establishment media, as alternative media platforms like Elon Musk’s X become more popular. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO)
Leftist news site, Mediaite chose to highlight a “seamless return to the CNN airwaves and how well-received he was, not just at his former employer, but also on MSNBC, where he has frequently appeared as a guest.”
The Gateway Pundit reportedly labeled Stelter’s book both a “tremendous failure” and a “BIG FAT FLOP.”
This shift is evident in the recent Republican presidential debate, where there was a call for alternative media figures to moderate in place of establishment shills.
