It can often seem like we live in a world beset by conflict and conspiracy, a world where words of anger, outrage, and falsehood seem to carry further than words of reason and rationality. But would our world be less divided if the online world that we live so much of our lives in, wasn’t being manipulated by a few giant tech corporations?

The Tale of the Heckler seeks to expose the shocking truth that the huge digital media companies who run the internet use our data and doubt against us, amplifying disinformation and driving denial and falsehoods about the world’s crises, all for the sake of profit.
