After examining the recent incidents in Charlottesville, Va., in an installment of “Vice News Tonight” that aired Monday, Aug. 14, HBO announced today that the episode will air as an encore presentation this Sunday, Aug. 27.
The original airing came two days after violence broke out in Charlottesville during white supremacist protests. The incident has remained in the headlines and continues to polarize Americans and political leaders.
“Originally presented Monday, Aug. 14, two days after the Charlottesville events, the show follows correspondent Elle Reeve, who spent that weekend with white supremacist leaders, including Christopher Cantwell, Robert Ray, David Duke and Matthew Heimbach, as well as with counter-protesters,” HBO says in today’s announcement. “The show also speaks with the Charlottesville police, residents of Charlottesville and members of the Black Lives Matter movement.”
The program will be televised Sunday at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
“Vice News Tonight” was recently nominated for six News & Documentary Emmy Awards.
