In 2022, the U.S. House Select Committee on the January 6 Capitol riot held nine public hearings in an effort to reveal evidence acquired in the investigation to tell the story of the storming of the U.S. Capitol. AllSides conducted an analysis of 50 news stories from prominent U.S. news outlets covering five of the most-prominent public hearings. Here’s what we uncovered.
