Ten Worst Places in Connecticut Video Proven to be Fake News

Several years ago, a video claiming to countdown the “ten worst places” in Connecticut went viral. It played heavily on prevalent stereotypes and many have criticized its lack of accuracy. Mieum Media explores the video’s alleged methodology, its creators, and more.

Mieum Media produced this video after their research and findings.

In 2016, the cities of Meriden, New Haven, and New Britain were all targeted in the viral video about Connecticut’s supposed “worst places.” The video may have been considered “unfair” by some, but given its view count, it is hard to argue that it does not prey upon decades-old stereotypes in the state.

Mieum Media spoke with City Manager Tim Coon, Mayor Toni Harp, and Alderman At Large Daniel Salerno to find out more about their respective cities.
