20 Years Ago: President Reagan on the Fall of the Berlin Wall

November 5, 2009

We are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the most memorable event in the fall of communism and the end of the Cold War: the fall of the Berlin Wall. Sam Donaldson interviewed former President Ronald Reagan immediately after the fall of the Wall, just 10 months after the end of Reagan’s presidency. Watch vintage Reagan, but also note that Sam Donaldson introduces the segment saying that Reagan will get a lot of credit for this event. This was not the liberal consensus in 1989 and Sam Donaldson deserves credit for being one of the first mainstream media reporters to recognize Reagan’s achievement on national television.
