Fox News’ “Hannity” on Thursday at 9 p.m. eastern will air a one-hour special about the “District of Corruption” movie and the permanent political class and crony capitalism on both sides of the aisle the film exposes and indicts.
The film, “District of Corruption,” directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton and Victory Film Group, traces the roots of the modern disenchantment with the political system back to the Clinton administration, which shamelessly commercialized government. This continued under George W. Bush’s administration. And the Obama administration has put crony capitalism on steroids.
The Thanksgiving evening special on “Hannity” will have panelists discussing some of the Obama administration’s biggest scandals, such as Fast and Furious, green boondoggles like Solyndra, the politicization of the Department of Justice not limited to voter intimidation cases, and bailouts to Wall Street cronies.
Most of these scandals would not have seen the light of day had it not been for Judicial Watch, the watchdog organization that has been relentless in its pursuit of the truth and documents that administrations from both sides of the aisle have tried desperately to hide. This is detailed extensively in the film.
Some of the panelists who will appear on the special program include: David Webb, the conservative commentator; Steve Bannon, the film’s director, Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute, which has also held both parties to account; Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch; Katie Pavlich, who has done groundbreaking work on Fast and Furious; J. Christian Adams, the former Department of Justice Civil Rights lawyer who is now at the Election Law Center; Anita Moncrief, the former ACORN employee who has exposed how the left uses and politicizes community organizing groups for its political ends; journalist Kerry Pickett, who has held the Obama administration’s feet to the fire; and Hans A. von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation who is an expert on voter fraud.
The one-hour special will also feature a special segment with conservative writer Jedediah Bila, who has been a fierce and consistent outside-the-beltway critic of both establishments and the permanent political class.
A Breitbart News/Judicial Watch Election Night exit poll found 85% of voters were concerned about corruption in Washington. In addition, 71% of voters agreed that, as government gets bigger, “the more opportunities it creates for possible corruption.” Further, voters did not trust either party to effectively combat government corruption because for too long members of both political parties have enriched themselves and their allies at the expense of the American taxpayer.
