CHRIS WHIPPLE, journalist, filmmaker, and multiple Peabody and Emmy-winning producer for 60 MINUTES and ABC’S PRIMETIME, is out with a new book, “THE GATEKEEPERS: HOW THE WHITE HOUSE CHIEFS OF STAFF DEFINE EVERY PRESIDENCY.”  This is the first, in-depth look at an office whose impact and influence the vast majority of the country does not understand.  Whipple looks at Chiefs of Staff from the Nixon administration to the present, interviewing dozens of sources as well as former Chiefs still alive… and real interesting and compelling look at the power the comes with this position, and of course, you can relate it to present-day, and Reince Priebus and his role in the Trump administration.  Tony talks with Chris and below that, check out a fascinating Discovery Channel special "The President's Gatekeeper" for a look perhaps the toughest job in all of Government.  


He is the president's most powerful advisor and closest confidant. The White House chief of staff shapes the president's agenda, and turns his policies into reality--or disaster. He passes judgment on the president's noblest ideas and his riskiest schemes. "He is the one person besides the president's wife," says Donald Rumsfeld, Gerald Ford's ex-chief, "who can look him right in the eye and say, 'no, you cannot go down that road, trust me, it's a mistake.'" And because he rarely talks about his role--what happens in the Oval stays in the Oval--the chief of staff is the keeper of the president's secrets. Until now.

Featuring exclusive interviews with all 20 living White House chiefs of staff and two presidents, Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, The Presidents' Gatekeepers explores the fascinating and untold story of this unique fraternity and the presidents they serve.   See the trailer below and watch the full episode on line by clicking here.
