US election misinformation: What is QAnon and how much of a threat is it to democracy?

QAnon followers have been flooding social media with false information about the 2020 U.S. presidential election, ensuing confusion that is spilling over from the online world into the real world.

The unfounded internet conspiracy theory alleges the world is run by a cabal of satan-worshiping pedophiles including Democratic politicians and Hollywood celebrities running a global child sex-trafficking ring.

At its core, the far-right conspiracy theory claims it is only U.S. President Donald Trump who can get “deep state” leaders arrested in what they call “The great awakening.”

But with QAnon going mainstream, how detrimental is the far-right conspiracy theory and how much of a threat is it to democracy?

Emanuela Campanella explains.

    Global News is a POOR EXCUSE for NEWS….It's called Investigative Journalism, which you've forgotten how to do(or are being paid [not] to do)…Check out how many Elite World Leader Types are "Linked" to Jeffrey Epstein and his Flight Manifest…… "I DARE YOU TO REPORT THE TRUTH ON THAT"

    If you're really that concerned about the spreading of misinformation you'd turn your comments off. Its a simple solution that nobody seems to be trying.

    It's a Global Network disinformation campaign. It's no coincidence that you can watch liberal news from all over the world and are all repeating the same things that always turn out to be not true, same lies and trigger words.
