1. a)Jeffrey Wigand was an executive at a major tobacco company in the 1990s. He was fired and eventually became a famous whistleblower who spoke out regarding practices in the tobacco industry. There is a good movie about the ordeal he faced when he went public called “The Insider” starring Al Pacino and Russell Crowe.
Here is a 60 Minutes interview he gave in 1996. ( I will upload the pictures of what the video looks like under files ).
At first, 60 minutes did not air the interview out of fear they would be sued.
Watch the entire interview and write a summary. At least 300 words. I should be able to tell you watched the entire interview by reading your summary. In other words, if you only tell me that he was a tobacco whistleblower I honestly don’t know if you watched the program.
