April 2, 2004

Thirty years ago as counsel to Richard Nixon John Dean mesmerized the country with his testimony in the Watergate hearings about "a cancer growing on the presidency." Eventually Nixon would resign and John Dean would go down in history for his role in the Watergate scandal.

Dean wrote book back in 2004- his sixth - in which he concludes that the obsessive secrecy and deception in Washington today is "Worse Than Watergate." This conversation with Bill Moyers was Dean's first television interview on "the hidden agenda of a White House shrouded in secrecy and a presidency that seeks to remain unaccountable" and his book WORSE THAN WATERGATE: THE SECRET PRESIDENCY OF GEORGE W. BUSH.
