Just a week after news broke about CNN settling a massive lawsuit over its fake news coverage of Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, WarnerMedia announced Wednesday that CNN's "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter is making a documentary about the rise of fake news that will debut in March on HBO.
According to a press release from WarnerMedia, Stelter will executive produce the documentary, with Andrew Rossi directing.
After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News will highlight the “rising phenomenon of ‘fake news’ in the U.S. and the impact that disinformation, conspiracy theories, and false news stories have on the average citizen.”
