Fake news starts wars, creates economic depressions, and ruins lives. Yet who his holding the fake news media accountable? Someone needs to tell the story about fake news, and there is one man in the best position to do so.

Mike Cernovich, the producer of Silenced, is bringing you Hoaxed: The Media's War on Truth.

Hoaxed will take the viewer on a full-throttle visual plunge into the history and future of fake news, uncovering their techniques, unveiling their agenda, chronicling the rise of the New Media, and showing you how to fight back against their lies.

Hoaxed will focus on the many types of fake news, and expose those responsible for:

  • Creating the housing bubble, which led to the worst economic recession since the Great Depression
  • Dragging the U.S. into a pointless war on false pretenses
  • Inciting violence against peaceful American voters

Hoaxed will have a much higher production level than Silenced.

I've brought in two hungry and experienced directors for Hoaxed in Scooter Downey and Jon Du Toit, as well as a director of photography in Justin Gum. You can see from the Kickstarter that we are taking our production to another level.

Hoaxed will be hard hitting.

We aren't messing around. Fake news has led to immense human suffering, and no one in the mainstream media will call out the lies that caused an economic depression, wars, and political violence.

I enjoy the opportunity to meet the fake news media face-to-face!

Thank you for supporting Hoaxed!

Risks and challenges

Films can always have drama, as films involve creative and head strong personalities. I've mitigated the risk in several key ways.

Hoaxed has two directors which means we have complimentary skill-sets at play and will also allow us to finish the production faster.

Moreover, I released Silenced, my first ever documentary, early.

I have a track record of success which includes:
- Multiple books
- Several short documentaries
- One feature length documentary on free speech.

I am confident Hoaxed will be ready for release by Christmas.
