From the show’s promotional materials:
The truth is the real weapon in this redefining news series that follows a Navy Seal, a Green Beret and a dedicated reporter as they hunt down war criminals and terrorists from around the world.
From Lucy Dalglish, the executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press:
Is this supposed to be journalism?
Well, the show does have a journalistic patina— it’s an NBC News “groundbreaking television event,” and one of the on-screen participants/executive producers, Adam Ciralsky, comes from 60 Minutes (the other executive producer is Charlie Ebersol, a documentary filmmaker and the son of the chairman of NBC sports).
