Synopsis

The Presidential debate is raging between Republican Richard Meredith, a media veteran with no political experience, and Democratic Governor Paul Greene. The media are waiting with baited breath and are not privvy to the fact that one of the candidates has just been involved in a major political scandal. However, veteran newscaster Mike Howley (James Garner) has been given the information and he and his co-panallists of the up-coming Presidential candidate's debate decide to disclose the information live on television - even though it will ruin one of the candidate's careers. But Howey's decision causes shockwaves and controversy all over the U.S. Now everyone is asking the question 'Should the information have been broadcast so close to the elections?'
