Edited and narrated by Abby Martin of The Empire Files.
Content directed by Nolan Higdon, Mickey Huff, Andy Lee Roth and Abby Martin.  Shot and produced by students with Project Censored, this film reminds us the problem of fake news isnt new, but rather, is another form of propaganda. Interviewees offer solutions for mitigating the pernicious influence of false content on America's democratic institutions.
