This network of white Christian Nationalists, plutocrats and their powerful media ecosystems have undermined the Nation’s response to the pandemic and promoted dangerous disinformation such as hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID19. She will also explore the network’s role in the insurrection and attack on our Capitol on 1/6.
