Description

A six part series looked into the leader of the New York Independence Party, Fred Newman. Critics say Newman has a sordid history that parties, courting his vote, chose to ignore. Former allies say Newman leads a cult which requires members to give their lives and money to his cause. With no formal training in psychology Newman founded Social Therapy, with 9 centers around the country. Patients are told that society is to blame for their problems so the only hope for improvement is to improve society by working for one of Newman's organizations.
