A still from FRONTLINE and Armando.info's documentary "A Dangerous Assignment: Uncovering Corruption in Maduro's Venezuela."

On this edition of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we discuss A Dangerous Assignment: Uncovering Corruption in Maduro’s Venezuela, a new PBS Frontline film documenting a team of investigative journalists as they follow the winding trail of Venezuelan state money.

It also tells the "inside story of Alex Saab, his capture and then release by the US in a controversial prisoner swap, and what has happened to the journalists who helped uncover the corruption scandal."
