In the United States, the political scandal known as Watergate, which for having covered it up ended up costing Richard Nixon the presidency and the discredit to Richard Nixon, is a fact of public domain, but it still generates controversy.
As a result, Gaslit, a television series based on Leon Neyfakh’s podcast Slow Burn, which recounts the events that took place between 1972 and 1974, began airing this weekend.
The value of one woman’s testimony
The appeal of the project is that the Watergate from the perspective of Martha Mitchell, the wife of one of the main conspirators in the scandal, Nixon’s attorney general, John N. Mitchell.
Gaslit features the character played by Julia Roberts, who becomes the first person to publicly address the direct involvement of the President of the United States in a reprehensible act such as the cover-up of the break-in at the Democratic National Committee.
Victim of the smear
To date, the most regrettable aspect of the case is that when the truth about Nixon’s involvement in Watergate was revealed, Martha Mitchell was discredited to the extent of pointing out that she had alcoholism and psychiatric problems.
It should be noted that Gaslit will air on television and online exclusively through Starz.
So episodes of the series will be available for streaming every Sunday on the Starz website and via the Starz app.
An alternative is to add Starz to existing streaming services.
In this regard, for an additional price to the services they offer, Hulu and Amazon Prime have such an option.
Regarding the app, it can be downloaded through the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon.
The Starz app is also available for Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast and Roku.
