Ordained “The King of Fake News” by NPR, Jestin Coler built a network of websites meant to “infiltrate the echo chambers” of the alt-right. As the 2020 elections approached and Coler’s techniques were adopted by armies of fake news purveyors, this documentary investigates its sway on the election and its lasting impact on the presentation of truth in our country.
