Oh the irony….
HBO announced that it has teamed up with CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter for a documentary about the rise of “fake news” just days after it was announced that the news network settled its defamation lawsuit with Covington Catholic High School student, Nick Sandmann (as pointed out by Breitbart).
The documentary, titled, “After Truth: Disinformation and the cost of fake news” examines the “rising phenomenon of ‘fake news’ in the U.S. and the impact that disinformation, conspiracy theories and false news stories have on the average citizen,” according to a Warner Media press release.
The announcement continues, “The film focuses on several high-profile made-up news stories in recent years with real world consequences, including the infamous ‘Pizzagate’ case, the disinformation campaigns that influenced the 2016 presidential election, the Jade Helm conspiracy, and others.”
The documentary is directed by Andrew Rossi and executive produced by Stelter himself. read more
