171: Election

Nov 3, 2000
Stories for the eve of the Presidential election, in which we try to evade, sidestep or look beneath the candidates' soundbites.
  • A Michigan millionaire tries to swing his swing state, using only his voice, his millions, and major market radio ad time. A report on Jeffrey Fieger, who helped swing his state to McCain during the primaries with several irreverant attack ads against Bush. In this age when we all wish our politicians would shoot from the hip, Fieger delivers, for good and bad. Contributing editor Jack Hitt goes with Fieger to the studio, as Fieger records a new set of anti-Bush spots for the general election. (13 minutes) GovernmentJournalismPoliticsPresidents
