Bob Herbert talks about his penetrating new book, Losing Our Way: An Intimate Portrait of a Troubled America. And former New York Governor Mario Cuomo was laid to rest in New York City on January 6 to full throated praise for his liberal legacy. But how liberal was that legacy, really? In an obituary, The New York Times cited Cuomo’s role in the closing of Long Island’s Shoreham nuclear power plant in 1989 as one of his major accomplishments. But investigative reporter Greg Palast saw another side of that story. He advised Cuomo and the New York State Legislature as the decision was made to close the plant and to take over the private Long Island Lighting Company or LILCO. The experience showed him that there were two Marios: the golden throated defender of the working man and the back room politician. Palast discusses his online post, A Tale Of Two Marios.
