Axios reported that CNN media correspondent and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter has begun a book about "Fox News in the age of President Trump, and Trump in the age of Fox." The publisher is One Signal, an imprint of Simon and Schuster. The publisher says the book will come out in 2020 and look "behind the scenes of a TV network and a White House merging in unprecedented fashion."

Stelter decries a conservative "hate movement" against CNN and other liberal media outlets,...
