This edition: The Pentagon Papers' HeroesTweet
Original tape date: February 15, 2018.
First aired: February 23, 2018.
Sam Roberts talks with former New York Times editor James Greenfield, one of the editors who decided to publish the Pentagon Papers. He’s written an introduction to the new edition of "The Pentagon Papers" published by Skyhorse Books.
Then a revisit with Robert Ellsberg, who as a 13 year old helped his father Daniel Ellsberg copy page after page of what we now now as the Pentagon Papers. He was the subject of a recent profile by James Barron in the New York Times.
Then a revisit with New York Times Reporter Richard Sandomir. His latest book, “The Pride of the Yankees: Lou Gehrig, Gary Cooper and the Making of a Classic” is a classic in its own right.
Sam Roberts provides additional thoughts on “Coda.”
