Chung Winner’s “The Equalizer”


Chung Winner & Jan Tucker

I previously announced a documentary film project about myself, which has now come to fruition. See my prior blog posting at:

You can see the result at: and by clicking the episode known as, The Equalizer at the top of the page. Hearkening back to the old Equalizer series on TV, one of my long time clients years ago dubbed me the real equalizer because of the way I assist people who have been oppressed, repressed, and generally fucked over by the powers that be. Filmmaker, Chung Winner, has done what I think you’ll agree is a superb job of capturing the essential Jan Tucker (you’ll know my essence if you know me personally).

About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
