This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

What is the value of understanding the origins of a political myth? A new FRONTLINE / ProPublica investigation explores the false narrative of a stolen election.

The report looks at former President Donald Trump's discredited claims that President Joe Biden did not actually win the 2020 election. FRONTLINE explores where the story began, who funded it, who engineered it, and what it means for the future of democracy.

Samuel Black is writer, producer, and director of FRONTLINE's Plot to Overturn the Election.
