Not only were recruiters lying about the academic qualifications of their enlistees, they were teaching the enlistees to lie about their background, thereby planting the idea that the Armed Forces are corrupt."

Part One of the Greenville, Ohio, investigation which attracted criticism for being too closely involved with police.
CBS "48 Hours" sent a worker into a Federal Beef Processors plant in South Dakota to film questionable practices with a hidden camera provided by the producers. The company immediately sought and got an injunction to stop CBS from airing the footage, charging that to make it public would divulge trade secrets and damage the local economy. CBS challenged the ruling, which the South Dakota Supreme Court upheld. CBS then appealed to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun, who very swiftly overturned the lower court judgment in an emergency ruling and allowed CBS to include the footage in its broadcast without delay. Blackmun refused to exercise prior restraint and argued that to block the network would “cause irreparable harm to the news media and is intolerable under the First Amendment.” The segment aired on February 9, 1994. It made the firm’s name public, ostensibly because of the company’s legal action, and caused the firing of the whistle-blowing employee.
