Glued to cable news discussions about Robert Mueller and Donald Trump? Then, keep reading!
The Prosecutor & The Presidency — a five-part, 13-hour history of investigations into our nation’s Commander-in-Chief – has debuted on a brand-new subscription streamer, The News Behind the News.
The series features interviews with 11 former Attorneys General and independent/special prosecutors, including Richard Kleindienst (AG, 1972-1973), Benjamin Civiletti (AG, 1979-1981) and Kenneth Starr (Independent Counsel, 1994-2001). Those three, pictured below, are all featured in a promo for the first episode, which you can view here. The topic: “The Oath of Office and the Oath to tell the Truth.”
The News Behind the News comes from the Full Disclosure Network (FDN). And here’s a full disclosure: The Savvy Screener had never heard of FDN until today.
But FDN and The News Behind the News have been around since 1992 when they were formed by the non-profit American Association of Women to “promote and encourage public awareness and discussion of critical issues that are rarely covered in the mainstream media.”
Shows ran on cable TV until 2009 when productions moved online. You can sample videos at fulldisclosure.net or try a free five-day trial to the new subscription service at thenewsbehindthenews.net. With the latter, you’ll get The Prosecutor & The Presidency in addition to unspecified other videos.
If you want to continue after the trial period, The News Behind the News will cost 12.99 monthly or $114 annually.
