A major photographic exhibit of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on display at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., has become a center of controversy. Some question whether political pressure forced the Smithsonian to alter the exhibit and move it to a less prominent area of the museum. Host Liane Hansen talks to New York Times reporter Timothy Egan.
