If you’ve been listening to the EWRS for any length of time, you know how we’ve been riding the “Fast and Furious” case.

Katherine Eban has penned an investigative piece for Fortune magazine – “The truth about the Fast and Furious scandal” that for some, seems to turn the whole story on it’s head. Or does it? Well, we get into that, big time.  Listen to the story – read the documentation we’ve got here, and let us know what YOU think.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  WBAI – our mother station, where the EWRS originated and broadcasts from, is in fundraising mode and needs your support.  PLEASE go to wbai.org and make a donation.
