Crooked Minis - September 11, 2019 - 29:16

What happens when a conspiracy theory turns out to be true? This week on State of Conspiracy, Professor Kathryn Olmsted is joined by Kevin Kruse, professor of history at Princeton University. Together, they explore the ways the media and historical events of the 60s onwards contributed to an increasing mistrust in both government and media. They explore some of the most absurd cases of government conspiracies that ended up being true and how those revelations changed the trajectory of how Americans and politicians question the truth today.
