A Profile of Former Media Mogul Conrad Black

Former media mogul Conrad Black, who in 2007 was sentenced to 6-and-a-half years in prison for siphoning off millions from the parent company of the Chicago Sun-Times, is free on bail. Canadian journalist George Tombs knows more about the man behind that reputation—he's the author of the Black biography Robber Baron: Lord Black of Crossharbour. In 2007, he gave WBEZ's Gabriel Spitzer insight into the mind and motives of Lord Black.
