Editors and co-authors Dave Zweifel and John Nichols recall the remarkable 100 year history of the often-radical Wisconsin newspaper, The Capital Times. From the middle of America -- and through boycotts and political attacks -- the newspaper has served as a the tribune of Robert M. La Follette and the progressive movement; battled Joe McCarthy during the "Red Scare;" championed rights; opposed the Vietnam War and the Invasion of Iraq; and more.
