Revisiting the Kent State Shootings 50 years later

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.
