Lies, Politics and Democracy

Season 2022  Episode 12

FRONTLINE’s season premiere investigates American political leaders and choices they’ve made that have undermined and threatened democracy in the U.S.

In a two-hour documentary special premiering ahead of the 2022 midterms, FRONTLINE examines how officials fed the public lies about the 2020 presidential election and embraced rhetoric that led to political violence.

Watch the FRONTLINE Interviews: To produce LIES, POLITICS AND DEMOCRACY, the FRONTLINE team conducted more than 40 hours of original interviews with current and former members of Congress and advisers who worked in the Trump administration, as well as journalists, legal scholars and political scientists.
