Washington’s Other Scandal
Program Number


Series Description

Premiered January 1983 Since January 1983, FRONTLINE has served as American public television's - PBS - flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature over 23 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. Series release date: 1/1983

Program Description

The 1996 campaign was the most expensive -- and perhaps the most corrupt -- in history. The congressional hearings investigating the campaign's financial abuses have only presented the public with a confusing tangle of partisan accusations and a morass of unconnected details. In a special report with Bill Moyers, FRONTLINE reviews the available evidence and testimony from the recent congressional hearings to create a surprising and troubling narrative of the selling of the presidency.
