Lights! Cameras! Action! January 6th Committee Hires Professional TV Producer For Televised Hearings
“will reportedly work behind the scenes with the committee and its staff to craft messaging and production during the hearings, which begin Thursday night during prime time”
Democrats are deeply invested in the January 6th Committee. They hired a seasoned, professional television producer to help supervise their prime-time hearings this week.
They clearly want this to be the television event of the season, like the finale of a popular series.
Dominick Mastrangelo reports at The Hill:
Former ABC News president helping Jan. 6 committee with presentation of prime-time hearings
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol has enlisted the help of a veteran network news executive as it aims to make its case to the American people during prime-time hearings this week that former President Trump incited an insurrection against the U.S. government.
James Goldston, who worked for nearly two decades at ABC News as a senior producer and eventually president of the news division, has joined the committee as an adviser specializing in media production and presentation, according to multiple reports.
Goldston will reportedly work behind the scenes with the committee and its staff to craft messaging and production during the hearings, which begin Thursday night during prime time.
Axios reported on Monday that Goldston aims to help with presentations during the hearings that are “raw enough so that skeptical journalists will find the material fresh,” using a mixture of live witness testimony and pre-taped interviews.
This has been confirmed by multiple people.
A) Fox has confirmed that the committee investigating last year’s riot at the Capitol has hired former ABC News President James Goldston to “produce” the slate of hearings scheduled for this month. Fox is told Goldston will have a hand in all of the hearings this month.

While we’re on the subject of the January 6th Committee, you may not have heard that they’re now delving into other areas, like the foundation of America’s election system.
Axios recently reported:
Scoop: Jan. 6 committee’s private divide
The House’s Jan. 6 committee has split behind the scenes over what actions to take after the public hearings: Some members want big changes on voting rights — and even to abolish the Electoral College — while others are resisting proposals to overhaul the U.S. election system, Axios has learned.
Why it matters: Televised hearings begin Thursday night. Committee members are in lockstep about capturing Americans’ attention by unfurling a mountain of evidence connecting former President Trump and those close to him with the attack on the Capitol…
The big picture: Disagreements arise whenever proposals are raised such as abolishing the Electoral College, vastly expanding voting rights like same-day registration or tightening the Insurrection Act to make it harder for a president to deploy the military domestically for use on civilians.
So we have to abolish the Electoral College to prevent another so-called insurrection?
