Screen Time S2: The Battle for Reality

Screen Time

13-09-2023 • 2 mins

When the pandemic hit in 2020, it suddenly seemed like conspiracy theories were everywhere. Did Bill Gates put a microchip in the vaccine? Is the World Economic Forum trying to take over the world? Was the pandemic orchestrated by a secret cabal of elites? A recent poll found that 1 in 4 Canadians believe in online conspiracy theories. Which means that we're no longer just living in different information bubbles. We're living in different realities. On this season of Screen Time, Taylor Owen and Supriya Dwivedi dive into the murky world of online conspiracy theories and misinformation. They'll expose the bad actors trying to distort the truth for personal gain, and speak to the Canadians occupying these alternate realities to try and understand how they got there - and how we might bring them back.
