NPR's Scott Simon talks with Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Dorothy Rabinowitz about her new book, No Crueler Tyrannies — Accusation, False Witness, and other Terrors of Our Times about the child sexual abuse trials of the 1980s and 1990s where child care providers were convicted not only for crimes they didn't commit, but crimes which Rabinowitz argues never happened.
