Truth in Journalism
Writer David Brock admits he lied about Anita Hill and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in a 1992 magazine article in order to protect the Thomas' reputation. A panel talks about how untrue information gets into print, the factors that undermine honest reporting and commentary, and the impact on news coverage, politics, and society.
