The Ragged Edge Special Report Starts Sunday


Randy Weaver exposed an anti-government nerve that burns across the Inland Northwest.

The 1992 siege at Ruby Ridge, where federal agents surrounded Weaver’s cabin, marked the region as a national rage center. Now, a growing number of people are concluding government works against them, not for them.

They’re tired of expanding regulations, mounting federal debt, bureaucrats who don’t understand the life and the people in the West.

Seven reporters and three photographers spent the last five months documenting this movement. Their report, The Ragged Edge, explores this anger at government, traces its roots and assesses its consequences.
