series description

THE WHOLE TRUTH is neither a traditional one-on-one interview show nor a conventional round-table program. It's a six-part series that aims to uncover the reality behind today's toughest issues, leaving the partisan noise-making out of the equation. Hosted by David Eisenhower - noted historian and author, professor at the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Pennsylvania, and grandson and namesake of President Dwight D. Eisenhower - the series tackles some of the weightiest public affairs topics of our time, with a focus that's global and long-term in scope. Eisenhower's approach to political debate is rigorous, intense and insightful. Each half-hour episode features a different panel of guests presenting varying points of view to help viewers understand all sides of the issue. The format of the show is a three-step that includes an introduction to the topic or "the case," cross-examination and oral arguments, and a summary of "the whole truth."
