Craig Pittman's Welcome to Florida: Watergate and Florida

Watergate and Florida

With the 50th anniversary of the Watergate break-in upon us - an event which would lead to a fundamental change in American politics, society and media - we take a look at the numerous and surprising ways in which the Watergate scandal connects to Florida. Helping us do so is Garrett M. Graff, author of a new book sharing the full story of Watergate, which goes back much further than the break-in.
