Professor Richard Moon comments on Trump, COVID-19 and conspiracy theories

Professor Richard Moon was interviewed on the CTV/Bell media Quibi platform about Trump, COVID-19 and conspiracy theories. 

"There is a long history of conspiratorial thinking in the United States," says Professor Moon. "And it seems to be really baked into the political mindset in the US." 

Professor Moon suggests the rise of conspiracy theories could partially be linked to social media and today's polarized political climate may have become fertile ground for the spread due to significant suspicion about authority and expertise.
