Terry Gross’ interview with Ben Affleck on Tuesday’s “Fresh Air” is a uniformly interesting discussion about the making of Affleck’s “Argo,” and the effort and ethics that go into bringing quasi-historical depictions to the big screen. But it becomes particularly interesting about halfway in, when Gross asks Affleck about his approach to handling history in a motion picture. He admits to taking creative license with the movie

    We built a database of suspicious activity reports obtained through open-government laws in Minnesota. Check it out. The database accompanies a package of stories we released today at the Center for Investigative Reporting about the post-9/11 phenomenon of suspicious activity. You can read the stories online now or listen to National Public Radio’s All Things Considered this afternoon. Another version will air tonight on PBS NewsHour, and one more story will be available tomorrow on NPR’s Morning Edition.
