A new Frontline documentary about the Bundy family’s fight against the federal government aired on PBS this week.
“American Patriot” focuses on the armed standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge early last year. It also includes never before seen footage shot by FBI agents who posed as a documentary crew to gain access to the Bundy family. Some of that footage was used in court earlier this year in the trial of six men who took part in a separate standoff near Cliven Bundy’s Nevada cattle ranch in April 2014.
“American Patriot: Inside the Armed Uprising Against the Federal Government” aired May 16, 2017 on PBS.
