4/20/06: The Jack Anderson Papers

Journalist Jack Anderson died in December of 2005, and his papers are now housed at George Washington University.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – For more than 50 years, the journalist Jack Anderson dug deep inside the power structure of Washington. Along the way he broke some huge stories: the CIA-Mafia plot to kill Castro; the Iran-Contra Scandal. Now, the FBI has asked the family to turn over nearly 200 cartons of papers, planning to remove whatever classified documents may be among them. The family has rejected the offer. Doug talks to Professor Tim Chambless about the story and about Anderson's life-long struggle to expose the inner workings of government.
