Episode Summary

A Spy In the Spotlight & Bill George Interview
David Brancaccio takes a look at today's dramatic House committee testimony from former spy Valerie Plame. Plame testified about the leaks that ended her undercover career, but jumpstarted investigations into questionable "spin" tactics at the highest levels of our government. Also this week, NOW talks with a former Fortune 500 CEO and Harvard professor who prescribes a cure for self-serving corporate leaders who abandon rules of right and wrong at great peril to their companies, their communities, and the environment. Bill George's new book, "True North," provides insight and inspiration from 125 top U.S. business leaders across a wide spectrum of industries. In a compelling interview, the two discuss what's wrong with American capitalism and how to fix it.moreless
