Professor and former Dean David Rudenstine was interviewed on C-SPAN's Washington Journal. He focused on the significance, then and now, of The Pentagon Papers, the controversial decision to publish them on the front page of The New York Times and the Supreme Court's role in allowing the press to go ahead with publication.
