Childhood innocence and generosity are apparent in a Dublin boy who mailed his allowance money to the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s football team. The financially-struggling program will end this season. Sitting down with WOSU, Bennett Williams expresses interest in continuing his mission to help.
Frontline: The Choice 2012
The first “Frontline: The Choice” program I remember watching profiled Clinton and Dole.Â When the program ended I feltÂ I had gotten a real sense of each candidate.Â The program didn’t run through proposals, or political talking points.Â All it didÂ was introduced me, the viewer, to where each candidateÂ grew up, his family and friendsÂ and his life experiences to that point.Â Doesn’t seem like much but I felt as if I really knew how each candidate would govern the country and my choice became clearer.
Tuesday evening on WOSU TVÂ “Frontline” will present “The Choice 2012″.Â We’ve heard this election seasonÂ how clear the choice should be, which America do you want for the future.Â Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have spent hundreds of millions of dollars telling their own stories, and framing the story of the other guy.Â In “The Choice 2012″,Â “Frontline” goes far beyond the headlines and into their worlds, among their friends and family, critics, and closest colleagues, to understand what drives each man.Â Just like the program I watched several years ago,Â I believe this oneÂ will also make things clearer.
“Frontline: The Choice 2012″ airs Tuesday, October 9 at 9pm on WOSU TV, with an encore presentation Wednesday, October 10 at 9pm on WOSU PLUS.Â One additional airing ofÂ “Frontline: The Choice 2012″ can be seen on WOSU TV Sunday, October 14 at 10pm.
