Truth Be Told

Through the words of many wise people, Truth be Told will search for the threads that can illuminate our current societal debates and issues with truth, whether it be American style health care, public education, the free market versus socialism, the vagaries of Wall Street, U.S. foreign policy or any other issue that emerges. Tying history and common sense to current events, we will visit the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of notable historians, economists, presidents and everyday men and women as we seek to find and tell the truth.
