One-third of Americans still believe the Big Lie, which is the verifiably false claim that Donald Trump was the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

The Supreme Court has ruled that certain lies and inaccuracies are protected under the First Amendment — but when an elected official’s lies intentionally undermine our democracy, does that protection extend?

And since big lies need an audience, what is the responsibility of the press in preventing
their spread?


MODERATOR: Eugene Daniels, White House Correspondent, Playbook Co-Author, POLITICO
