"Angler"-- Dick Cheney

Page history last edited by elisabeth higgins null 15 years, 9 months ago

The attached articles document a chilling example in contemporary US history of two types of followership:

 

1) toxic followership --using the President's name to amass unconstitutional powers and withholding

from him all information about the looming crisis thus caused until the eleventh hour

 

and

 

2) principled followership-- the entire leadership of the Justice Department and FBI preparing to resign if

the illegal presidential order was issued over their legal objections.

 

"ABOUT THE SERIES," THE WASHINGTON POST, SEPTEMBER 14, 2008

This is the first of two stories adapted from "Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency," by Barton Gellman, an investigative reporter at The Washington Post. The book expands on a four-part series on Cheney by Gellman and former Post investigative reporter Jo Becker that ran in The Post in June 2007. Gellman and Becker, who is now with the New York Times, were awarded the Pulitzer Prize in National Reporting for the series, which was also titled "Angler."
