Join us for a special presentation of Frontline on WITF. An investigation into America’s increasingly bitter, divided and toxic politics.
The first episode broadcasts Monday January 13 at 9:00 PM. It traces how Barack Obama’s promise of unity collapsed as increasing racial, cultural and political divisions laid the groundwork for the rise of Donald Trump.
The second episode broadcasts Tuesday January 14 at 9:00 PM. It examines how Trump’s campaign exploited the country’s divisions, how his presidency has unleashed anger on both sides of the divide, and what America’s polarization could mean for the country’s future.
