Director reflects on shooting new Alpha News documentary

“I hope my role in this helps all of us, in some way or another, realize how we've let feigned leadership and false narratives deceive us," said Dr. JC Chaix, director of the upcoming documentary.

In this episode of Liz Collin Reports, we go behind the scenes of the Alpha News documentary, coming this fall, exposing the truth behind George Floyd’s death, the riots, and the aftermath.

The film’s director, Dr. JC Chaix, joined Liz to talk about why he got involved and what people can expect.

Dr. Chaix was also the editor of Liz’s bestselling book, “They’re Lying: The Media, The Left and The Death of George Floyd.”

He said he got involved back then due to “skepticism.”

“Nowadays skepticism has become kind of a lost art. It’s probably the last thing you see and hear of in the Twitter town square. Even nowadays, for example, while we all know the philosopher Descartes’ famous saying, ‘I think therefore I am,’ few of us know the sentence he wrote before that, which to me is even more important, and that was, ‘I doubt therefore I am,'” he said.

“For me, in this case, it was the dismissiveness, the kind of disregard for reasonable doubt, that made demonstrating skepticism and the facts absolutely imperative in this case,” Chaix added.

Chaix is a former police officer and volunteer firefighter. In addition, he was also a managing editor of a leading IT research advisory firm.

When it comes to what really happened on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis, Chaix says he has been troubled by the way it was handled by the media and the left from the very beginning.

“I think the most befitting answer I could give in two words or less would be something like suppressio veri, and that’s a Latin phrase for suppressing the truth. I draw that conclusion mostly because of my research the past several years has involved the analysis of types of sophisticated media composition and deceptive communication,” he said.

“One of the hallmarks of deception or propaganda or dogma is insistence. So, we find logic and meaning in language, in words, and how we speak to one another, right? So, when we see things like the insistence and repetition of words and pseudo facts, that’s pretty much a clue that something deceptive might be going on. In this case, we see these oddly repeated words, this insistence upon the murder of George Floyd, before we even had the autopsy report, before the bodycam videos from the police officers were even released. That should say something,” Chaix said.

Alpha News is planning to offer the crowdfunded film for free this fall so as many people can see it as possible.

“The folks who have supported this … they’ve absolutely been a source of inspiration,” Chaix said.

“To see people now and it really is a collective body. I feel like there is a movement afoot where there are a lot of supporters who are, to quote someone who said it so eloquently at one of your book signings, they’re showing up, they’re standing up, and now they’re speaking up about demanding the truth, which for so long has just been hidden,” he added.

“I hope my role in this helps all of us, in some way or another, realize how we’ve let feigned leadership and false narratives deceive us. We’ve let politicians of a certain kind manipulate a story. Others sat back and let that happen,” Chaix remarked.
