Huey Long

Here is the 1986 episode of the PBS series, American Experience, on Huey Long, produced and directed by Ken Burns (long before later programs such as The Civil War, Jazz, The Vietnam War, or The Roosevelts). Burns has become the principal court documentarian for the establishment ruling elite, tasked with shaping the historical perceptions of hundreds of millions of Americans for the decades to come. For more on Huey Long, see this previous LRC blog.
