The National Guard fired on Kent State College students who were peaceably gathering on May 4, 1970. Four students died, nine were wounded. Today I talk a local reporter by the name of Robert Giles who worked at the Beacon Journal in nearby Akron, Ohio. The owner of the paper had a dictum: "Get the truth and print it." And that's what Robert and others at the paper did which resulted in them exposing extensive government lies and winning a Pulitzer Prize. In this interview, Robert discusses what they were faced with in bringing forth the truth.
