Swarthmore, PA – El Ride Productions, one of the companies behind Mike Cernovich’s smash hit Hoaxed and Oliver Stone’s 2015 film A Good American, have officially released their latest documentary film on Vimeo. Sensational follows the journey of citizen journalist Steven O’Rourke as he researches the history behind propaganda and sensationalism in the United States over the past century.
Throughout the film, viewers are taken down the rabbit hole of internet conspiracies and the expanding power of the “Deep State”.
Infowars founder Alex Jones and longtime Trump confidante Roger Stone are featured heavily in the film, which also showcases commentary from fellow conservative journalists and media figures like Lee Stranahan, Lionel, and right-wing activist Jacob Engels.
“The project started in 2017 with interviews that become more relevant with every day that passes. Sensational features men and women from both sides of the political spectrum, but their messages were eerily similar. Everyone involved was concerned with the ever expanding powers of the ‘Deep State’ and the fact that when their power grows, our liberties and freedoms become increasingly diminished,” observed David Lugo, who directed Sensational along with Matt Schwartz.
RT’s Caleb Maupin, a self described Communist, and left-leaning anti-war journalist Max Bluementhal, provide their insight from the progressive end of the political spectrum in Sensational. Journalists Amanda Alcantra and Ellis Henican also provide their opinions on the origins of sensationalism and the state of journalism today in America.
