Molly McKew - Brett Kavanaugh and the Information Terrorists Trying to Reshape America

In Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation process, we can see the same types of coordinated disinformation and conspiracy campaigns running on all cylinders online as occured in the 2016 election. These narratives are then picked up at the highest levels of government, from politicians who use the internet to crowdsource which conspiracies pick up traction and can then be leveraged against their political rivals. If it sticks online -- you're likely to hear it from the President. Molly McKew joins Dave Ross to discuss her latest feature in Wired Magazine. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
