The Bob Edwards Show, Betty Medsger, John Raines, Bonnie Raines, and Doyle McManus, February 21, 2014 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Betty Medsger, John Raines, Bonnie Raines, and Doyle McManus, February 21, 2014

Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news. Then, we take a moment to remember influential African-American poet and author Amiri Baraka who died earlier this year. Finally, Bob talks to Betty Medsger about her new book, The Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover’s Secret FBI. It’s about the historic l971 break-in to the FBI’s office in Media, Pennsylvania. The burglars stole all of the files in the office, which revealed that the FBI was engaged in secret and illegal spying and dirty tricks operations against anti-war activists, civil rights groups, and other American dissidents. Despite a massive manhunt, the FBI never found the culprits. In her book, Medsger reveals the identity of some of the burglars for the first time. Bob also talks to two of the burglars, John and Bonnie Raines. In l971, John Raines was a professor of religion at Temple University; Bonnie Raines, his wife, was raising their three small children. Betty Medsger was a Washington Post reporter who received some of the purloined documents, and broke the story.
