Who funds presidential campaigns and what do they want in return? CIR set out to answer those questions in investigating big donors to the 1992 race between Bill Clinton and George Bush in the PBS “Frontline” documentary, “The Best Campaign Money Can Buy.” Now, 20 years later, producer Stephen Talbot recalls what CIR uncovered and what we can expect from the $2 billion race for the presidency in 2012. Watch the full documentary or check out more of our Behind the Story extras.
Nixon Grand Jury Testimony Released
From NPR: “The Nixon Library and National Archives have released a trove of documents relating to former President Richard Nixon’s grand jury testimony. The testimony, taken after Nixon resigned, was the first by a sitting president. Nixon was interviewed at his California home on June 23 and 24, 1975, after he had been pardoned by President Gerald Ford.”
