CBS: Ronald Reagan’s Close Call

This weekend, CBS aired a short segment on the near assassination of Ronald Reagan. Del Quentin Wilber, author of RAWHIDE DOWN, was interviewed for the piece and discloses some of the unexpected effects of the shooting.

Wilber says,

"[Reagan] got a lot of benefit down the road... Iran–Contra... the other controversies may have sunk another presidency, but they didn't sink his and I'm convinced it's because the people of America got a rare glimpse of someone without the facade on."
