Former Miami Herald reporter David Kraslow talked on Wednesday April 15, 2015 about a story he wrote in the early 1960s about the Bay of Pigs invasion in April 1961. But the invasion might never have taken place if, months earlier, the Miami Herald had revealed everything it knew. Then-Herald reporter Kraslow, in 1960, had discovered CIA preparations for the invasion and had written a 1500-word story about it. But, at the government's request, Herald editors killed the story.
