Election 2024: Brian Stelter on the state of American political media

False balance and fake news, threats of violence against journalists, accusations of authoritarianism and dementia, and a public increasingly less trustful of all major institutions, including the news media…

How well are the major American media outlets and social media platforms equipped to handle what is already gearing up to be another contentious presidential campaign? Will the 2024 campaign be a repeat of 2016 and 2020, or has the media learned how to cover a presidential candidate who doesn't care about the truth, and revels in making the press enemy number one?

Brian Stelter is one of the USA's most experienced journalists covering the intersection of media and politics, and in this session he takes us deep into the U.S. political media landscape.

In an ever-evolving media landscape - who are the key players this time around? And what are the biggest journalistic challenges as the country gears up for another Trump-Biden campaign?

Brian Stelter is a special correspondent for Vanity Fair, where he hosts the weekly podcast «Inside the Hive» on media and politics. Stelter was previously the anchor for CNN’s «Reliable Sources». He recently published the critically acclaimed book, «Network of Lies», which examined Dominion's blockbuster defamation case against Fox News.
