Download audio (MP3)

If you're a New York governor who solicits call girls, or a Congressman who accidentally tweets a salacious photo to someone who isn't his wife, you might need help with damage control. That's what consultants Mark Fabiani and Christopher LeHane offer in their new book, "Masters of Disaster," which refers to the nickname they earned while serving as aides to the Clinton White House during the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky years. Fabiani and LeHane discuss the secrets of political spin in politics, business and Hollywood.

Host: Dave Iverson
