Our holiday gift to you is a story we first brought you back in May. It touches on corrupt politicians and keeping the public in the dark. Don’t worry, it has nothing to do with this year’s election. In fact, this story takes us back more than 40 years.
Consider this show a trip with the ghost of investigations past, where we take a look back at the Pentagon Papers – how they became public and why they’re so important.
