Fox News Channel will preempt their most popular show two days next week to present two new documentaries on the presidential candidates. “2008 Presidential Character and Conduct” airs Monday and Tuesday at 8pmET. Bill Hemmer hosts Monday’s Obama documentary. Eric Shawn hosts Tuesday’s McCain hour.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Paul J. Gough spoke with Hemmer and Shawn about the programs. “This is an in-depth, detailed examination that’s beyond what has been broadcast in terms of these typical type of biographies,” said Shawn. Added Hemmer, “The voters are evaluating these men, Obama and McCain, and I believe these documentaries are terrific learning tools by which people can watch and learn, discuss and decide.”
