Gary Hart And The Week Politics Went Tabloid

Listen Now

Author Matt Bai's 2014 book "All the Truth is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid," revisits the 1987 sex scandal that sank former presidential hopeful U.S. Sen. Gary Hart of Colorado. In a recent Yahoo! News column, Bai says that campaign -- and the way it was covered by the news media -- paved the way for this year's unusual race for the White House. Bai's interview with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner, which took place live at Denver's Tattered Cover bookstore, first aired in October 2014.
