Friday, May 11, 2012


This week Tom Curley, the president and CEO of the Associated Press, apologized on behalf of the AP for the way the organization handled the firing of a reporter named Edward Kennedy. In 1945, Kennedy broke a US government embargo and filed a story about the German surrender in Europe. Bob speaks with Curley about why he decided to apologize now, 67 years after Kennedy was dismissed.
