Topic for the show:  I speak to Ben Swann and we cover the water front. 

Ben has spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news.  His career began as a news photographer and moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter.  Along the way he won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards.  For a number of years he covered Mexico’s drug war.  At that time, he 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, Ben moved north to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a prime time anchor job with WXIX and there he became the producer/writer/anchor of a segment called “Reality Check”.  It was while covering the 2012 Republican Presidential primary that he 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, Ben 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.
