One of television's most controversial documentaries of all time. CBS News's 1971 investigation into the military's promotional activities was assailed in Congress and denounced by Vice President Spiro Agnew as "a clever propaganda attempt to discredit the defense department." Our panel will explore the firestorm and its relevance today. (1971; 60 min.) Part of The Museum of Television & Radio 2006 DocFest.
Q&A with Peter Davis, Filmmaker; Helen Pomeroy, Assoc. Prod.; and other special guests.
