American Scandal

American Scandal

Every scandal begins with a lie. But the truth will come out. And then comes the fallout and the outrage.

Scandals have shaped America since its founding. From business and politics to sports and society, we look on aghast as corruption, deceit and ambition bring down heroes and celebrities, politicians and moguls. And when the dust finally settles, we?re left to wonder: how did this happen? Where did they trip up, and who is to blame? From the creators of American History Tellers, Business Wars and Tides of History comes American Scandal, where we take you deep into the heart of America?s dark side to look at what drives someone to break the rules and what happens when they?re caught. Hosted by Lindsay Graham.

The Dust Bowl | The Battle in Muscatine | 4

Air pollution had long been a problem in Muscatine, Iowa.

For decades, a corn-processing plant had been operating in the south end of town. And according to locals, the facility?s emissions were so strong, some people gagged just by breathing in the air.

But a group of residents wouldn?t accept the status quo. And with the help of public-interest attorneys, they launched a legal battle that would redefine Muscatine.

In this interview, Scott Entin, one of the residents? attorneys, tells the story of this long and difficult fight. And he explains how the group?s legal strategy could help address other environmental crises, including climate change.
