Codes and Conspiracies - Pizzagate conspiracy theory - Netflix

Pizzagate is a debunked conspiracy theory that went viral during the 2016 United States presidential election cycle. In the fall of 2016, the personal email account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, was hacked in a spear-phishing attack, and his emails were subsequently made public by WikiLeaks. Proponents of the Pizzagate theory falsely claimed that the emails contained coded messages referring to human trafficking and connecting several U.S. restaurants and high-ranking officials of the Democratic Party with an alleged child-sex ring. The theory has been extensively discredited by a wide array of organizations, including the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia.

A poll conducted by Public Policy Polling on December 6–7, 2016, asked 1,224 U.S. registered voters if they thought Hillary Clinton was “connected to a child sex ring being run out of a pizzeria in Washington DC?” The poll showed that 9% said that they did believe she was connected, 72% said they did not, and 19% were not sure. A poll of voters conducted on December 17–20 by The Economist/YouGov asked voters if they believed that, “Leaked e-mails from the Clinton campaign talked about pedophilia and human trafficking - 'Pizzagate'.” The results showed that 17% of Clinton voters responded “true” while 82% responded “not true”; and 46% of Trump voters responded “true” while 53% responded “not true”.
