CBS REPORTS: THE CORPORATION (TV)

Summary

One in this series of irregularly scheduled in-depth reports. A special broadcast exploring the corporate mind from the perspective of the executive suite: an examination of "corporate power and decision making, corporate problems, corporate ethics, and what it takes to rise up the corporate ladder." The Philips Petroleum Corporation of Bartlesville, Oklahoma is the subject of this inquiry, and its chairman, William Keeler, is the chief focus. The program closes with Keeler's pleading guilty to making an illegal corporate contribution to the Committee to Re-Elect the President (also known as CREEP) for the purpose of re-electing President Richard M. Nixon. Commercials deleted.
