TV Newsers Declare Their Independence in New HBO Doc

By Chris Ariens 

Several TV newsers are taking part in the new HBO documentary The Words That Built America.

In the film, debuting tonight, all of the living presidents and vice presidents, as well as several actors and TV newsers read from three of the nation’s founding documents: the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Anderson Cooper, Megyn Kelly, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Fareed Zakaria, are among the TV newsers taking part.


The film is produced by Alexandra Pelosi, who was a producer for NBC News before moving into documentary work more than a decade ago. Here’s a trailer for the film which will air several times this month on HBO.
