The Burglary

On March 8, 1971, a group of activists broke into the FBI offices in Media, Pennsylvania, and stole the full collection of documents, revealing a litany of wiretapping, infiltration and media manipulation designed to suppress dissent. In The Burglary, BettyMedsger-the reporter who found the activists and persuaded them to break their silence-recounts this exposé and its aftermath.Medsger reveals how the release of the file's contents to newspapers across the country upended the public's perception of J.

The result was the first overhaul of the FBI since 1924.Here is a thrilling story of justice gone wrong-and of the crusaders who broke the story to the world.
