Review:
Linda Ellerbee hosts this newsmagazine targeted to curious kids who want more in-depth coverage of current events. In a program focusing on the presidential campaign, George W. Bush and Al Gore are interviewed by real kids asking tough questions about health care, school violence, and the death penalty. The chaotic events following Election Day 2000 are covered in another special, featuring a multi-cultural panel of kids discussing the merits of the electoral college and the impact of the Supreme Court's intervention in the election process. These and other timely stories are taken directly from the headlines and examined through the eyes of intelligent kids, the newsmakers of the future.
