Allan Gregg in Conversation (Video) show

Summary: In his book "The Best of Times: America In The Clinton Years", Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Haynes Johnson sums up the 1990s as an era of peace, prosperity, scandal, and missed opportunities. It was a time of unprecedented wealth; revolutions were taking place in technology with the world-changing Internet, and in medicine with the mapping of the human genome. However, there was another America dominated by a media filled with scandal and celebrity. 9/11 was definitely a catalyst for change. (Originally aired November 2001)
