February 6th was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ronald Reagan. No doubt, he lifted American spirits. Guest on this show is Robert Parry, who broke a number of Iran-Contra stories while at the Associate Press and Newsweek in the Reagan era. There’s the mythic towering image of the man and then there’s the actual effects of Reagan’s policies, on such matters as terrorism, the financial crisis, the deficit, and more. Perhaps he saw the White House as another acting venue. If so, he was good.
