Jeffrey Toobin is a CNN legal analyst, journalist, and best-selling author.  Today he talks about his new best-seller American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes, and Trial of Patty Hearst.  He discusses bizarre story of her captors the Symbionese Liberation Army, some of the desperate measures the FBI resorted to in their effort to find her, and Patricia Hearst’s strange transformation from captive to criminal. We talk about how the case influenced media coverage of breaking news events, and how the Patty Hearst saga came to be synonymous with the idea of “Stockholm Syndrome.”
