Many people who broke into the Capitol broadcast their crimes across social media. Twitter, Facebook and other platforms responded by deleting accounts, but other people rushed to preserve and organize all their posts from the assault on the Capitol, as well as photos and videos from journalists present. The collective Bellingcat uses open-source intelligence to investigate events around the world. Their training director Aric Toler tells Jesse how they work. Then, Kurt Phillips used what he found on social media and internet forums to unmask racist Canadian groups for more than a decade on his blog Anti-Racist Canada. He tells Jesse about the trends he's seen in the Canadian hate movement and how his own identity was made public last year.
