Description

Conspiracy theories are a feature of today's news and politics. But they've really been a part of American life since its founding. In this episode, we'll explore how conspiracy theories helped to create the U.S. and how they became the currency of political opportunists.

You need to do more in-depth research. The birther conspiracy theory was first cooked up by Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2008 when she was running against Obama. She eventually dropped it when she knew she couldn't win the nomination and an agreement was made that she would join Obama's cabinet. Of course, when it was her turn to be president (so she thought in 2016), she tried to make it a "Trump thing". Which, of course, was absurd because he wasn't running against Obama. Qanon was just rehashing a bunch of old conspiracy theories like all partisan groups do. You can find these nut job sites all over the internet about just about any issue. You need to dig alot deeper to get to the ROOT of ANY conspiracy.
