A.C. Thompson is a senior reporter with ProPublica and a correspondent for FRONTLINE. His work has helped lead to the exoneration of two innocent San Francisco men sentenced to life in prison, the prosecution of seven New Orleans police officers, and a Congressional investigation of the U.S. Border Patrol. His life was fictionalized on the HBO show “Treme.”

We talked about The latest Frontline Documentary called American Insurrection Over the last three years, FRONTLINE has collaborated with ProPublica to investigate the rise of extremism in America. In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, FRONTLINE, ProPublica and Berkeley Journalism’s Investigative Reporting Program team up to examine how far-right extremist groups have evolved in the wake of the deadly 2017 Charlottesville rally — and the threat they pose today.
