Bert Roughton worked with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for 37 years. Last month, he retired from his role as Senior Managing Editor. But before he left, he wrote an opinion page dedicated not to his career -- but to the growing distrust between government, media, and the public. We talk with Bert about his time at the AJC and his vision for government transparency. We also talk about this with Carroll Doherty, Director of Political Research at the Pew Research Center. Their most recent studies confirm a lack of public trust in government on numerous issues.
