Geeks and Gear Interview with Ben Swann

Geeks Life - 2014-04-21

Join us for another episode of Geeks & Gear, where we interview News Journalist, and founder of the Truth in Media Project Ben Swann. *Bens Bio:* I have spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news. I won't bore you with all the details but suffice to say I began my career as a news photographer and moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter. Along the way I won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards. For a number of years I covered Mexico's drug war. At that time, I realized that national media was not interested in the truth of what was happening in Mexico or the problems associated with the failed 'war on drugs' in the United States. In 2010, I moved north to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a prime time anchor job with WXIX and there I became the producer/writer/anchor of a segment called 'Reality Check'. It was while covering the 2012 Republican Presidential primary that I began to confront the problems in the American electoral process, the stranglehold of America's two party system and the suppression of voters' choices by mainstream media. In 2012, I became the first journalist in the nation to confront President Barack Obama directly in an interview about the Constitutionality of his 'kill list' and the only journalist to confront Mitt Romney about the railroading of duly elected delegates during the 2012 Republican National Convention. Thanks to a passionate following, my work has become an internet phenomenon with over 10 million video views in over 140 countries. Follow us:@BenSwann_ on Twitter
