WSJ partners with “Frontline” to produce documentary
Wall Street Journal editor in chief Matt Murray sent out the following announcement on Wednesday:
I’m excited to share the news with you that for the first time, the Journal is partnering with PBS’s “Frontline” to produce an hour-long documentary. This investigation by reporters Christopher Weaver, Gabe Johnson and Dan Frosch exposes a decades-long failure of the U.S. Indian Health Service to stop a government doctor from abusing Native American boys, instead moving him from reservation to reservation, despite warning signs and whistleblowers.
The project represents not only a partnership between WSJ and “Frontline,” but also a wonderful collaboration among the WSJ investigative team, the video department and U.S. News.
The film will be broadcast on “Frontline” Feb. 5 and streamed on WSJ.com and the “Frontline” website. Please mark it on your calendars.
The trailer is below.
