Sharyl Attkisson: How Propagandists Co-Opted ‘Fact-Checkers’ and the Press to Control the Information Landscape

Five-time Emmy Award winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, host of  Full Measure and author of “Slanted: How the News Media Taught Us to Love Censorship and Hate Journalism,” talks about how the information landscape is being controlled.

She further explains how prior to 2015 there was no big movement begging Big Tech, or third parties, or fact-checkers to get between people and the open information online or on the news.


“Virtually every piece of information that can be co-opted has been, whether it’s Wikipedia online, fact-checkers, the news.”
