David Greising on the Business of Government Corruption

Last week's arrest of Governor Blagojevich and the allegations that followed have ramifications beyond just state government. The private sector has also played a "supporting role” in the drama of public corruption.

The most prominent example of late is perhaps the governor's attempts to pressure Tribune Company executives to fire a Chicago Tribune editorial writer. But there are plenty of others as well. Eight Forty-Eight's Business Contributor David Greising joins us now to talk about the role of business in government corruption.
