The Godfather of Fake News
Christopher Blair has been called the Godfather of Fake News. He’s an American troll. And whether you realized it or not, you’ve probably unknowingly read a fake news article that he’s written, cooked up on his computer in rural Maine. So we traveled to Maine to meet him, to understand how one man makes a living by deceiving gullible people on Facebook — and the effect that his trolling has on democracy.
Power Corrupts is written and narrated by Brian Klaas. The executive producer and sound editor is George McDonagh.
