Actor/activist Robert Redford on Watergate and the First Amendment
Academy Award winning actor, director and producer, Robert Redford talks about how he grew up in a poor neighborhood, which prompted his activism early on. On whether opposition to his work sometimes drew him back, he responds, “there’s always a price to be paid when you step out and speak up on anything, because there’s always another side to the issue.”
