We’re coming up on the first anniversary of a deadly riot in Charlottesville, Va., and so the new PBS Frontline program “Documenting Hate: Charlottesville” is both timely and freshly informative.
The new "Frontline: Weinstein" documentary, premiering Friday night on PBS, is a pre-Oscars reminder of what a foul human being Harvey Weinstein is.
Thanks to 'Frontline' for crediting us with enough intelligence to recognize the evil of MS-13 without also obliging us to become rabid anti-immigrationists.
Frontline's new documentary “Bannon's War” takes up the conventional narrative about President Trump’s most insidious aide and gives it a good shakeup.
The new Frontline documentary "Last Days of Solitary," on PBS Tuesday night, isn’t just a film about the use of solitary confinement in our prison system.
Frontline’s The Choice 2016—a two-hour examination of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s bumpy, often-wayward paths to Presidential nominations—has found a provocatively new narrative for Trump’s moment of decision to run for the highest office in the land: The Choice maintains that it was when President Obama pummeled Donald with insults during the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner. “Trump was steaming!” says New Yorker editor David Remnick, who was seated a couple of tables away while Obama pelted Trump with sarcasm about the latter’s birther obsession and his past as host of The Apprentice.
As presented by writer, narrator, and on-screen participant Jelani Cobb, Policing the Police follows Cobb as he travels around Newark, N.J., with members of the Newark Police Department and Newark mayor Ras Baraka. Cobb, a staff writer for The New Yorker (read his “Talk of the Town” piece in the current issue on the House of Representatives’ sit-in over gun-control legislation), decided to explore Newark’s police department for a number of reasons.
Perhaps the scariest thing about Frontline’s excellent new documentary, The Secret History of ISIS, is that the history of the terrorist group isn’t all that secret.
Early on in Chasing Heroin, Kristina, a 21 year-old heroin addict, offers a striking image of the insidiousness of the drug. It’s no secret that there’s a heroin epidemic in America, and one of the points of the exceptional, two-hour Frontline report airing on Tuesday night is that it was only when this drug plague extended well into white suburban neighborhoods that it began to receive greater notice and concern from the government and the media.
Who better to give TV recommendations than the people who make our favorite shows? And when we asked the executive producers and stars for their favorite series of 2015, we found out they’re just like us — they love a good binge-watch! The people behind Girls, American Crime, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and more talked to Yahoo TV about the shows that captivated them this year. Interestingly, offerings from Amazon and Netflix dominated, which just goes to prove how much streaming services have changed the television landscape.
Correspondent Martin Smith describes his recent time spent in Syria as “surreal” early on in “Inside Assad’s Syria,” a Frontline production premiering Tuesday night. No, he’s referring to the intentional disconnect occurring within various parts of Syria including Damascus, where Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government are trying to portray the war-torn country as being on the upswing — a vacation resort, no less.
