Ben Swann spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news. Starting as a news photographer, he moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter.

At that time, he realized that national media was not interested in the truth of what was happening in Mexico or the problems associated with the failed "war on drugs" in the United States.
