Following the New-York Historical Society's Friday-night screening of Frank Capra's political drama "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," experts in constitutional law and legal history (Kenji Yoshino, Robert Post, and Linda Greenhouse) examine the interplay between the U.S. Constitution, Congress, and the media.
