The story of the Tennessee General Assembly is a story of power, a story of the powerful and the powerless, a story of those with connections and those without. NewsChannel 5's “Revealed” investigation was based on a simple premise: Citizens cannot fully understand how the system can be fixed unless they understand how it really works.

Through exhaustive long-form reporting and compelling storytelling, “Revealed” gave viewers unprecedented insight into a legislative process where Tennessee’s supermajority depends on well-financed special interests to maintain political power and, in turn, often does the bidding of those special interests. As the legislative session unfolded, we examined how that symbiotic relationship plays a role in specific legislation.
