Mastergate is the latest "gate" scandal. The author of M*A*S*H and Sly Fox has fashioned this satiric farce as a congressional hearing looking into shady doings between a film studio and the White House. The C.I.A. has armed banana republic guerrillas with millions laundered though the budget of the forthcoming epic 'Tet: The Movie' . Television reporter Merry Chase provides the play by play as witnesses squirm before dim witted congressional interrogators who want to know what the President knew and did he have any idea that he knew it.
