Stand by for some book news...
Just announced: "Former VP Mike Pence will publish his autobiography with Simon & Schuster." It's part of a two-book deal. "The first book is tentatively scheduled for publication in 2023," the publisher says.
A peek behind the curtain: We'd been working on a story about this book deal for the past day, and were waiting for Simon & Schuster to respond to requests for comment when PR pulled the trigger on the press release. Exclusive details coming shortly...
Exclusive: The former VP's book deal is worth seven figures, somewhere in the range of $3 million to $4 million, sources told me and @jamiegangel…

Lachlan is just being honest here. Time for a thread about Fox and Dems 👇🏼
Fox led the opposition to Obama 12 years ago, but network execs fought that portrayal. Resisted it. In January 2009 Bill Shine told me they would "cover the news in a fair and balanced way and put on a very good product."
When I wrote about Fox as the "voice of the opposition" for NYT, Fox execs denied it:

Living through history, day by day, "it feels like you're in the middle of the ocean with with waves pouring over you constantly," @RonBrownstein says. But "history will have no trouble" identifying the "big structural factor driving the politics of our era" (1/4)
The big-picture theme, he says, is demographic eclipse – the eclipse of White Christian America, the rise of a majority-minority society, and the vicious response to this change. That's what we dug into on this week's RS podcast (2/4)…
"The fundamental dividing line in American politics," @RonBrownstein says, "is between those who welcome and those who fear the way America is changing." What some perceive as progress, others perceive as loss. (3/4)

NBC's @oneunderscore__ said "Please realize that in six months, there will be a part of pro-Trump media that becomes full 1/6 Truthers." I decided to turn on One America News, and I saw that it's already happening. On one of the president's favorite channels.
I watched ten random minutes of @OANN in the 10am hour and heard the pro-Trump riot sanitized as "the Capitol Hill incident;" heard it was a "very small crowd" of "troublemakers;" heard the scene was "nothing like" a war zone; and heard "there were clearly agitators in there."
"Antifa did it" lie is big on OAN. TWICE today, anchors said these exact words: "A self-described member of Antifa from New York is facing charges for allegedly stabbing 2 people during the protest at the Capitol." That happened in ALBANY, NEW YORK. But they made it sound like DC

BIG announcements at CNN today – so many that it's going to take a Twitter thread –

Here's the press release about new DC-based anchor roles:…

And here's the press release about new WH and congressional correspondent assignments:…
First: @JakeTapper becomes the network's "lead anchor for all major Washington events." Translating newsroom lingo: When it's time to project the winner of the 2024 presidential election, Tapper will break the news.
>> @JakeTapper's @TheLeadCNN expands to TWO hours, 4 to 6pm ET, beginning in April. Tapper will continue on Sundays, now as the CO-anchor of @CNNSOTU, with @DanaBashCNN anchoring every other week.
