John Stewart On Iran Contra

Good to see popular culture namecheck the ground zero of United States corruption because it's a pet topic of mine that history and the corporate are not allowed to spend too much time on. Reagan was by all accounts a super nice guy who was told what to say and didn't spend much time thinking of the genocides he sponsored. Iran Contra is easily twenty times bigger than Watergate but Watergate was the power elite bringing down a Republican so they gave it the spinmeister treatment. Reality is a bit more complex than what you're told.
