CJR offers a study of the Breitbart-led right-wing media ecosystem and how it has affected the broader media world. Carole Cadwalladr draws attention to billionaire Trump-backer Robert Mercer and his war on the mainstream media using big data. Veit Medick profiles popular conspiracy theorist and Trump propagandist Alex Jones. Steven Erlanger looks into Russia's RT Network and concerns that it is a Russian propaganda arm.
