from The Wall Street Journal,

I gave an interview about the Supreme Court justice that ended up on the cutting room floor. Here’s what the network didn’t air.

Trusting that PBS wanted personal memories that illustrated the character of my friend, I shared three stories that go to the heart of the man. Maybe because these stories contradicted the narrative PBS chose to present, it didn’t run any of them. The only excerpts from my interview it showed were biographical filler. To tell the real story of the person I know, I now relate what I told my interviewer and what PBS declined to show.
