After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News
HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on HBO
As a long presidential campaign looms in the year ahead of us (and behind us), "fake news" will undoubtedly be a major talking point, again, in the months to come. HBO's After Truth delves into this phenomenon, exploring the ways disinformation, conspiracy theories and false news stories have impacted the average U.S. citizen. Featuring interviews with purveyors and victims of fake news (including InfoWars' Alex Jones), and with numerous journalists and other experts, the documentary delves into such cases as the infamous "Pizzagate" incident, the disinformation efforts during the 2016 campaign, and more. It's a chilling portrait of our "post-truth" culture and a potent reminder of the dangers posed to our politics, news, and lives. —Tyler Aquilina
