- Program Description
"Frontline" offers an insider's examination of the culture and tactics of the national press corps. With public respect for the press at an all-time low -- on par with public regard for politicians -- journalists have begun to break ranks to probe what has gone wrong. "Frontline" follows the nation's top political journalists along the 1996 presidential campaign trail and behind the scenes of the weekly talk shows where reporters are transformed into celebrity pundits. Through the eyes of a few key journalists, this report explores the dynamics of the news business and its troubling impact on American politics.
