Default 'American Horror Story' Shows Journalists Using Fake News to Stoke Fears

By Amelia Hamilton | October 4, 2017 1:28 AM EDT
On October 3, American Horror Story: Cult took on fake news meant to instill fear. The episode "Holes" opened with reporter Beverly (Adina Porter) and her boss Bob (Dermot Mulroney) arguing over what stories to air. While Bob wants to report the news responsibly and factually, Beverly is more interested in sensationalism and stoking fear amongst the viewers to create chaos. Sound familiar?
