Missile Crisis Memories

Friday, October 11, 2002

This week marks the 40th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis-one of the most politically tense moments of the Kennedy presidency, as well as one of the most memorable media moments of the Cold War. This week, Bob speaks with Fred Kaplan, New York correspondent for the Boston Globe, about how the media covered the Missile Crisis forty years ago, and how we interpret that coverage today.
