Martin Smith is a producer, writer, director, correspondent and he has directed dozens of nationally broadcast documentaries for CBS News, ABC News, and PBS Frontline.
Inside the Trump administration’s coronavirus response — and missed opportunities to contain COVID-19 before it was too late. Correspondent Martin Smith speaks with global health experts about warnings to the White House that went unheeded, including a health policy expert who said his 2019 study pointing to the threat of a pandemic was met with silence. As he investigates how the crisis unfolded in the U.S., Smith finds: “There’s a lot of unknowns as to who dropped the ball and when. It’s clear that at the top, and I mean by that the president, the wrong messages were being given.”
Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman promised reform, even granting women the right to drive. But when Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered, the violence and revenge at his behest became clear. Journalist Martin Smith joins host Krys Boyd to talk about bin Salman’s influence on the Middle East. His Frontline documentary “The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia” airs Tuesday on PBS stations.
