Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Nick Bryant. Mr Bryant is author of "The Franklin Scandal" the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring's pimps were a pair of political power brokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks. The legislators' efforts resulted in rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering corruption of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI, Secret Service, and Justice Department, effecting an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network. The publisher is donating 50% of the book's proceeds to organizations that assist abused children. Author Nick Bryant writes, "The reality is that many perpetrators are not shady men in dirty, threadbare trench coats living in seedy hotels, but are, in fact, pillars of our community. Until our society addresses these facts and its institutions are willing to face embarrassment, instead of heaping more abuse upon victims, our national shame of rampant child abuse and its cover-up are unlikely to end." See the rough cut of an hour long documentary, "Conspiracy of Silence," funded by the Discovery Channel for UK viewing, but mysteriously pulled from its air date.
