This documentary film was made and first released about four years after its source book of the same "The Hunting of the President" name by Gene Lyons and Joe Conason had been first published in the year 2000.
This film's opening prologue states: "This motion picture is based on the book 'The Hunting of the President: The Ten Year Campaign to Destroy Bill and Hillary Clinton' by Joe Conason and Gene Lyons" [See: Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton].
The film's source book "The Hunting of the President: The Ten Year Campaign to Destroy Bill and Hillary Clinton" by Joe Conason and Gene Lyons was a continuation of the earlier book by Lyons called "Fools for Scandal: How the Media Invented Whitewater" (1996) [See: Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton].
Publicity for this picture declares: "There can be no doubt that we live in one of the most tumultuous political climates of the nation's history, a climate where politicians can be toppled on a whim, election results disputed in the country's highest courts, and governors unceremoniously recalled. It's enough to leave even the most cynical voter asking, how did this happen?".
