Cooper and Cameron, who has slammed the “partisan misinformation” pumped out by right-wing hosts at his former employer before, acknowledged the full series may not plunge as deep into conspiracy theory territory as has been feared following the release of its promo.
But Cameron, once known as “Campaign Carl,” said it was “really frightening and, frankly, it’s a betrayal to the audience, it’s a betrayal to the public.”
“Some of what is espoused or is meant to espouse just in that trailer suggests that there is more violence to come,” he cautioned. “And that’s a big, big rock around the author’s neck if that trailer and this upcoming thing actually does that. There are clearly huge divides in this country, the media shouldn’t be putting more gas on the fire.”
