The Insider recounts the chain of events that pitted Dr. Jeffrey Wigand against the tobacco industry. This Academy Award winner is a story that unfolds after Dr. Wigand is fired by Brown and Williamson Tobacco Company (a major tobacco company.) He agrees to be a paid consultant for a story that Lowell Bergman of 60 Minutes is producing. As Wigand and Bergman soon discover, Corporate America will use all legal means at their disposal to save a billion-dollar-a-year habit. *Warning: This video contains adult language.
